Gremio vs Defensor Sporting Prediction 23 May 2018

Tournament: Copa Libertadores
Location: Arena de Gremio
Match date: 23.05.2018 at 23:15

On May 23 2018 at 23:15 at the Arena do Gremio in the upcoming match of the 6th round of the Copa Libertadores group stage the local Gremio will play against their guests Defensor Sporting.

The Black and Blues are already on the first place in their group with three victories and two draws and 12:2 goals difference which is a wonderful result, in fact. The stats of the Brazilians in the domestic games are even more impressive as they won twice with 9:0 goal difference. In case they win this time, they will definitely take the first place in their group. It seems to us like a good reason to try and show great performance which will prove the advantage of the Brazilian clubs over the Uruguayan ones.

As for Defensor Sporting, they are on the third place in their group and have no chances to make it to the play-offs of the competition at all. Yet, in face they keep their third position, they will be able to qualify for the Copa Sudamericana and they need to gain not less points than Monagas will. Considering the fact that both of the outsiders will play their matches away from home, we really don’t expect any changes in the table of the group.

The strong performance of Gremio at their domestic stadium and their high motivation to take the first place in the group are actually the main reasons why we think that the hosts are much more likely to win this time. Sporting may be able to avoid a loss with bog goal difference or even score a goal and yet they don’t’ seem to be ready to try and avoid a loss this time. Anyway, we think that there will be goals scored in both halves of the upcoming match.
