Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 25th July 2017
Kick-off at 0:00 UK/ 1:00 CET
Venue: Estadio do Morumbi (Sao Paulo).
Sao Paulo picked a rare win on the mid-week when they edge past Vasco by a 1-0 margin. This has been a horrendous season for Sao Paulo and they managed only 4 wins so far. The recent win put an end to their 9 match win-less run.
However, they are a much better team at home and were beaten just once in 7 matches this season. Also, they can boast of a good defensive record, having conceded just 5 goals during the period.
Gremio are serious title contender, but they trail leaders Corinthians by 7 points. They would have been much closer of even at top, if not to lose three games on the bounce at the start of July.
Things are looking different now after registering third consecutive win on the weekend at the expense of Vitoria. They also come with a reputation of thrashing teams in away game. Gremio scored 20 goals from their 8 away games this season, averaging 2.5 goals per game.
