Date: Saturday, 13 July 2019
Kick off at 21:00 UK / 22:00 CET
Venue: Arena do Grêmio (Porto Alegre).
The home team come into the clash this weekend on the back of a positive 1-0 result away from home in the match against Botafago RJ. They also recorded a win in their last game on home soil against Fortaleza with the match finishing in the same scoreline.
Both the teams failed to break the deadlock early on in that game, while the winning goal came through Jean ten minutes before the end of regulation time. The home team certainly enjoyed the better share of possession and the more goal-scoring opportunities, than their foes, but failed to make it reflect on the scoresheet.
The visitors enjoyed a similar result in their last home match against Ceara but failed to clinch a win in their previous trip on the road to the home of Botafogo RJ. The squad were dismal in that game which finished 1-0 in favor of their opponents, who scored the decider through Souza ten minutes after the restart.
The away side made double the attempts at goal than the hosts, but found the target on just two occasions in the entire ninety minutes, both of which failed to find the back of the net.
Gremio are currently eleventh in the league with eleven points while their counterparts are on fifteenth, trailing behind the hosts by just two points.

Gremio vs Vasco da Gama Prediction
The fixture between Gremio and Vasco da Gama is likely to see the hosts come out on top with the win and all three points in the bag.
The home side are undefeated in their last two games on home soil and will be in high hopes of registering a third successive win. The squad have also recorded two clean sheets in those games and have scored seven goals at home so far.
Although the visitors did grab all three points in their last match at home, it has not been the case in any of their trips on the road. The squad are struggling without a win in their last four outings and have succumbed to a loss on three occasions.
A win certainly does not look to be in sight for the visiting team, who have scored not more than two goals in their campaign up till now.
The game is unlikely to be a high scoring one, with the hosts likely to be the only ones to find the back of the net on Thursday.
