Grêmio vs Atlético GO: Thinking about the Copa Libertadores, Grêmio hosts the already relegated Atlético Goianiense on a Brazilian Serie A’s match…
It is incredible how teams improve after having their faith sealed on the competitions.
That’s the case of the last placed team in the Brazilian Serie A Atlético Goianiense.
The team had an awful campaign in general but on the final stretch, when they were virtually relegated, they started to play better and getting some important results.
They have beaten the Brazilian champions and drew with Vitória and Atlético Paranaense away from home.
Basically, they got beyond respectable results that aren’t compatible with a team that only got 34 points in 36 rounds of the competition
But it is curious to see that most of those points were conquered away from home.

Grêmio even dividing themselves between two objectives are having a great campaign in the Brazilian Serie A.
They couldn’t fight with Corinthians until the end. But that was mainly due to the fact that they fielded reserve teams because of the Copa Libertadores’ matches.
And they reached the Libertadores’ final. Grêmio is currently halfway through the final of the competition, and they have beaten Lanus 1-0 at home midweek. Now they will need to defend that result in Argentina.
On the Brazilian Serie A, they sit in 2nd place with 61 points, 10 points behind leaders Corinthians.
For this match, Grêmio should field a completely reserve team, since their focus is on the continental tournament.
Grêmio vs Atletico GO – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe that Atlético Goianiense might take advantage of that here.
On the last 10 away matches, they’ve scored in 8 of them. And I believe that against Grêmio’s reserves, the task can be even easier.
