Gremio vs Cruzeiro Prediction 23 August 2018

Tournament: Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A
Location: Arena do Gremio
Match date: 23.08.2018 at 01:45

On August 23 2018 at 01:45 at the Arena do Gremio in Porto Alegre in the forthcoming match of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A 20th game week the local Gremio will play against their guests Cruzeiro. That is going to be one of the main games of the upcoming game week as both of the teams made it to the play-offs of the Copa Libertadores and they are both in the first half of the table of the Serie A.

Gremio are now on the forth position in the table of the national elite division with 10 victories, 6 draws and 3 losses with 23:8 goal difference. The defense of the Blue and Blacks is really impressive as they missed much fewer goals compared to all of the teams of the championship. The club from Porto Allegri seems to be in wonderful conditions as it gained 13 points in the last five games of the championship. There were only four games with Gremio where there were three or more goals scored.

Cruzeiro are now on the 8th place in the standings. At the moment they have five victories, five draws and seven losses with 15:16 goal difference. On fact, they are solid middle-peasants of the league who are for now far from their best conditions. In the last five games of the championship Cruzeiro only gained two points. Their performance can’t be called very spectacular as they only had two games with more than two goals scored.

That is going to be a game of two pragmatic teams who mostly choose to concentrate on defense. That’s why we really don’t expect them to score a lot of goals. In the first round game played between the teams Gremio won 1:0. Considering those current conditions of the teams we expect the hosts to win.
