Grêmio vs Estudiantes Prediction and Betting Tips

Grêmio vs Estudiantes – Copa Libertadores :At a disadvantage on this knockout tie, Grêmio hosts Estudiantes
this Tuesday in Porto Alegre
The Brazilian team comes into this encounter with a certain instability, all of that due to the ups & downs they’ve had in previous results.
After the elimination from the Copa do Brasil, all the team needs is to advance here, because they are being heavily questioned due to their lack of really convincing showings.
The loss of their reserves on the weekend in the Brazilian Serie A kept the team outside of the top 4 and that increases the pressure for this match even more.
The expectation is that we will see some changes on the starting line-up, with Jael entering to replace André and Leonardo Gomes taking the spot of Léo Moura on the right wing in more remote fashion.
Since they need the victory, I expect a very aggressive approach, even to avoid that the pressure for less time on the clock will bring nervousness to the team, therefore, we should see pressure from the first minute.
Estudiantes managed to get a good result in the 1st leg, with that 2-1 at home being more than what I expected, because the team finished the group stage was very underwhelming when compared to the team that played that night.
This is a more renewed team, with some players from their youth academy, especially on the attack, giving their team more vitality and speed on the attack.
Honestly, I still see them as a team that’s weak defensively. I saw Grêmio having chances and they didn’t get a good result much due to the time they wasted.
With the starting line-up, they have beaten Boca in the league, and with a mixed team, they have lost on the last round of the domestic league.
Like all Argentinians, they should defend as hard as they can here.
Grêmio vs Estudiantes – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Even in poor shape, I still see Grêmio being superior to the Argentinians.
I don’t believe that Estudiantes will go all out on the attack against Grêmio, so they should force the counter-attacks. They have a fast attack and that can be dangerous.
I really believe Grêmio will advance and I think they should score more than 1 goal here, since I still think Estudiantes are fragile defensively.
