Gremio vs Atletico MG
Brazil Serie A
Date: Thursday, 19 July 2018
Kick-Off at 01:45 UK
Venue: Arena do Gremio (Porto Alegre).
Atletico MG have bagged three wins in their last three outings and they travel to Arena do Gremio in Porto Alegre after the break hoping to build on the streak and snatch all-important points. They’ve beaten America Mineiro, Fluminense, and Ceara, with ten goals scored along the way and Thiago Larghi should be able to bring on a very motivated outfit once again.
Gremio will be no easy rivals to beat, though, and we should be in for a very narrow contest. The home side have held Sport Recife to a draw in their last outing, building on a 1-0 home win over America Mineiro – which now has them just three points behind the 2nd placed rivals. They have lacked consistency at home and many see this as the main reason Imortal Tricolor fail to cope with table-toppers Flamengo.
Galo will now hope to capitalize on such troubles and snatch the important points, but they’ve been far from impressive at the back – which should be more worrying for the travelling fans. Atletico MG have conceded 14 goals in ten trips across competitions and this promises an exciting contest as well.
