Gremio vs São Paulo – Brazilian Serie A: The focus is totally on the Copa Libertadores’ final…
It is very true that mathematically Grêmio still has a chance, but deep down inside, everyone knows that the title is practically decided.
Also having their spot in the top 4 practically ensured, Grêmio are looking to maintain their rhythm for the two decisive matches of the continental competition.
They are unbeaten on their last 4 matches, getting 2 draws and 2 wins, which shows that even when they are concentrating on another competition, they have been playing well.
The manager Renato Gaucho should rest one or two starters, but he has already announced that he will keep the core of his starting lineup in this match.
The ghost of relegation, that haunted the team for a good part of this season, no longer exists. With 45 points, São Paulo will hardly be involved on the fight to avoid relegation on this final stretch of the competition.
They are unbeaten on their last 5 matches, getting 2 draws and 3 wins and showing how much they’ve stepped up on this final stage of the competition.
Although they haven’t announced it in the press, the objective here is trying to ensure a Copa Libertadores’ spot.
For that to happen, several things must occur, it’s true, but if they are able to play their part, which means winning all the remaining games, they might be close to achieving that objective.
The manager Dorival Junior will not be able to count with Militão and Sidão who are both suspended for this round.
Gremio vs São Paulo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
São Paulo obviously has a clearer objective here. However, they’ll play away from home, against the vice-leader of this competition and Copa Libertadores’ finalist.
Living similar periods, and having teams that, in my opinion, are equivalent on paper, I believe that there are high chances of both teams scoring in this encounter.
