Gremio vs Corinthians
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Saturday, 25th June 2017
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Arena do Grêmio, Porto Alegre.
Gremio and Corinthians will be aiming to build on their midweek victories on Saturday at Arena do Grêmio. The hosts defeated Coritiba 2-0 in Porto Alegre while Corinthians beat Bahia with 3-0. Their midfielder Gabriel will be suspended due to double yellows showed against Bahia.
Gremio are only one point behind their opposition as they collected 22 points so far. They will be motivated for the upcoming match as they could overtake the first place from Corinthians in a case of victory.
The hosts’ immaculate home record is Corinthians’ headache ahead of the Saturday’s contest. Gremio won four out of four games in Porto Alegre without conceding a single goal.
However, league leaders excel on the road too. Corinthians are undefeated on the road with 3 victories and a lone draw. They only conceded twice while scoring seven.
Their unbeaten streak is impressive – they haven’t suffered a defeat since Campeonato Paulista clash with Ferrovariaria who beat them 1-0. In Serie A, they only dropped points twice in two draws. Corinthians are yet to suffer a defeat in the league this season.
Gremio vs Corinthians: Head-to-head
Gremio had success over Corinthians in the last two seasons. They won both their games on the home turf in the last two years while scoring three goals in each, but they even secured a point each from the two away games.
Gremio vs Corinthians: Prediction
Both teams wouldn’t be happy to see their unbeaten run ended. A draw is a likely outcome as both sides were rock-solid in the back line, but head-to-head meetings and atmosphere in Porto Alegre could be the deciding advantage on Saturday. However, we will certainly witness a mouth-watering contest between the two giants of Brazilian Serie A.
