Vitoria vs Gremio
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 18th July 2017
Kick off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Manoel Barradas.
Vitoria conceded four goals in the second subsequent match at the weekend in the loss to Palmeiras on the road.
This will be the music to the ears of Luan, Everton Lucas Barrios & company who are looking to keep the good form going and claim their third consecutive win in mid-week.
Alexandre Gallo has had a turbulent period so far in the season and it is more than obvious that the Brazilian manager will have a very difficult task to keep his side in the elite class in the next season.
Vitoria’s game saw certain improvements when the team picked up four points from matches with fellow strugglers Bahia and Atletico GO, but the team failed to back it up against stronger rivals having allowed as many as eight goals in consecutive defeats to Vasco da Gama and Palmeiras.
Gremio have also had a rollercoaster campaign so far in the season, but the team returned to the second position after the weekend’s victory over Ponte Preta.
Even though Raphael Thyere scored an own goals ten minutes before the break, Lucas Barrios (completed a brace) and Everton created a second-half comeback for Imortal Tricolor.

Vitoria vs Gremio: Prediction
The match comes at the perfect moment for Imortal Tricolor and we expect them to take advantage of the momentum and pick up their third straight win.
The bookmakers are quite generous offering the visitors at 17/10 to pick up points from Estadio Manoel Barradas which is a must-take bet under these circumstances.
