Grêmio vs Atlético PR Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 22nd April 2018
Grêmio vs Atlético PR – Brazilian Serie A: Grêmio hosts Atlético-PR in
Porto Alegre. Both teams have won on the 1st round and are fighting for the lead of the competition.
Grêmio has made a great achievement, being the only team to win on the first round away from home and against Cruzeiro, that is one of the title contenders.
I’ll say even more, Grêmio played like they were playing at home, their centre forward André made his debut with a goal and the team is in fantastic form.
For this match, they have some important returns of players that were left out of their last match in the Copa Libertadores against Cerro (where they drew 0-0).
The wing-back Léo Moura, that played super well against Cruzeiro, the defensive midfielder Maicon, one of the team’s maestros, and the midfielder Luan, considered to be one of the best players in the country.
They are already unbeaten for 7 matches and have kept a clean sheet on their last 4 matches.
Atlético is the sensation of the moment in Brazil. The team that won the state championship with their U23, has been playing with their starters and killing it every match.
Against Newells Old Boys on the Sudamericana, they won 3-0 with a great showcase of offensive organization, and on their debut in the league, they battered Chapecoense by 5-1.
This Thursday, they drew 2-2 against São Paulo, advancing onto the Copa do Brasil’s 8th finals.
This is a team without a great star, who is very organized, prioritizing the ball possession, good ball exchanges and variation of plays, although being a bit weak on the defensive transition.
Grêmio vs Atlético PR – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Two teams with similar approaches, but in my opinion Grêmio is superior. They already have a 3-years work, while Atlético is still just starting their process. Grêmio should dominate the actions and they play at home where they are very strong.
Although both teams have played during the week, Grêmio went to Paraguay and rested some starters, while Atlético had a much more intense match, having to come from behind and two days later. I think that all of that weighs a little bit in favour of Grêmio.
