Gremio vs Fluminense
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 9 August 2020
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 24:00 CET
Venue: Arena do Gremio (Porto Alegre).
Gremio played in the Campeonato Gaucho post lockdown and were the winners. They were unbeaten in the last five fixtures in the schedule with two draws in it. Their previous encounter was at home and they won against Internacional with a 2-0 scoreline.
At home, they have won 12 of their 19 clashes in the Serie A last season. This shows that the host has the ability to use their home ground advantage in the game. On the contrary, the visitor had only 6 wins in their 19 away fixtures last season.
Fluminense was unbeaten in their last five matches in the league last season, but they were 19 points behind the host in the table. They have been winless in all the clashes in their schedule post lockdown. They are on a two-game losing streak in the schedule, following a 1-0 loss on the road against Flamengo last time out.
