Santos vs Grêmio – Brazilian Serie A: Santos is coming off 3 straight losses in the league, with the last 2 being as visitors…
They will now return to Vila Belmiro on a match that could clinch their spot in the top 4 and consequentially their presence on the Copa Libertadores’ group stage.
For that, the manager Elano shouldn’t promote any change on the starting line-up that played against Bahia on the last round, and unlike the quiet performances they had on the last matches,
I think that the Vila Belmiro crowd will demand a great exhibition from them tonight.
Grêmio: Focusing on the Copa Libertadores’ final, Grêmio has already ensured their spot in the top 4 of the Brazilian Serie A and will only play for pride until the end of the season.
With that in mind, the manager Renato Gáucho has confirmed a team completely formed by reserves in this match. It is worth noting that, despite having a decent roster,
Grêmio’s reserves weren’t able to cope with the high level of this Serie A and they almost never won in this condition. As visitors, they never won with these reserves.
Santos vs Grêmio – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Just like I’ve said before, I think that the Brazilian Serie A is balanced enough to punish any team that dares to play with a team filled entirely with reserves and those teams rarely get away with it scot-free.
Tonight’s match is even more special, since even if Santos aren’t very motivated going into this match, they are still one of the best teams in the country,
so much that they sit in 4th place and are having a great campaign at home, with 11 wins in 17 matches,
and they need to give a positive reply to their fans who saw their title hopes slip between their fingers with the club’s several slip-ups.
Since they are coming off 3 consecutive losses, they know what they need to do tonight to alleviate their situation.
