Gremio vs Sao Paulo Prediction & Betting tips
Four games are still to be completed in the highest Brazilian league and slowly announce the first decisions. Corinthians in first place is ten points ahead only mathematically to catch up and Gremio has the qualification for the Copa Libertadores, the South American Champions League already almost certain. On Wednesday Gremio receives the guests from Sao Paulo, on the one hand still fighting for a place at the Copa Sudamericana, on the other hand, the Copa Libertadores but have not yet written off.
With seventeen wins, seven draws, but also ten defeats in 34 games, Gremio from Porto Alegre is currently second in the table. First place is ten points behind and only twelve possible points no longer an issue. However, the qualification for the Copa Libertadores should be and in this respect it looks very good. For five teams from Brazil go directly into the South American Champions League and on Botafogo in sixth place Gremio has seven points ahead. Speaking of Copa Libertadores, Gremio are in the final of South America’s most important competitive football tournament after a 3-0 win and a 1-0 defeat by Ecuador’s Barcelona SC.
In the national league, Gremio have been unbeaten in four matches, earning them eight points thanks to two wins and two draws. At home Gremio is not overly strong and comes after seventeen home games only on a 9-3-5 balance at 24:12 goals. That only makes eighth place in the home table. From mid-October to early November, Gremio had lost at home three competitive games in a row. In the last two home games, there was at least once again a win and a draw.
FC Sao Paulo and Bahia are currently the strongest form of the highest Brazilian league. The club has picked eleven points from their last five games. After three wins in a row, there were two draws in a row. Overall, Sao Paulo is only eleventh out of twenty. Twelve wins face thirteen defeats, plus nine draws. The Achilles heel at Sao Paulo is certainly the defensive. In 34 league games Sao Paulo conceded 46 goals and thus the fifth-most. In addition, the shoe pushes especially abroad. While the club is fifth with a 9-6-2 home record in the home table, only one player left in the away table for Sao Paulo.
There were only three wins on the opponent’s place and three more draws, but otherwise already eleven defeats at 17:29 goals. Of the first eight away games Sao Paulo had lost all. Then came an improvement, which resulted in the last, that Sao Paulo won two of his three away victories in the last five away games. Only once in their last nine outings Sao Paulo could score no goal. With 45 points, Sao Paulo is only two ahead of Fluminense in fourth, who no longer qualify for the Copa Sudamericana, but only five behind Flamengo, who sits on a place to qualify for the Copa Libertadores.
