Gremio vs Santos
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 30th July 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Arena do Gremio.
Gremio and Santos are set to take on each other in one of the most interesting fixtures of the round in the top flight of Brazilian football on Sunday evening at Arena do Gremio.
Gremio kept their impressive attacking form going on Thursday evening when they bagged three goals past Atletico PR to confirm the advancement to the semifinal of Copa do Brasil.
It was their fourth win in last five matches and their third game (of last four) in which Renato Gaucho’s men bagged at least three goals.
Imortal Trucolor will have a very tough task to maintain such an impressive scoring record since Peixe have one of the strongest defensive lines in the competition.
Santos will also come into the game in high spirits having picked up three wins on the trot.
Levir Culpi’ side bagged four goals in mid-week’s Copa do Brasil action against Flamengo, but it was not enough for them to reach the last four stage as Urubu went through thanks to an away goal rule (4-4 on aggregate).
Gremio vs Santos: Head to head
Gremio lead the tie by a single win ahead of their 39th encounter with Santos who are winless in last six meetings with Imortal Tricolor.
It is interesting to mention that three of the last four H2H encounters between the two sides saw both teams on target.
Gremio vs Santos: Prediction
Gremio are 13/20 favourites to continue their hit run of form, but we’d skip any outcome bets since Peixe are well capable of making an upset.
Instead, the best of the betting calls would be backing both teams to score at the evens odds.
