Corinthians vs Grêmio
Stadium: Arena Neo Química
This match was scheduled for Round 15 of the Série A and will finally be played two months later. Corinthians hasn't won in four league games, and despite being a more organized side compared to the start of the season, the truth is that the team lacks some creativity. On the other hand, Grêmio, although ranked higher than its rival, is struggling away from home, having lost in its last three trips. The Paulistas don't take many risks, and the Gaúchos are intimidated away from home, so there is no favorite.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
The Timão narrowly missed a fourth consecutive draw, but a defensive lapse allowed Yago Pikachu to score the winning goal for Fortaleza in the 94th minute. The late goal actually brought justice to the scoreline, as the Cearenses were superior to the Paulistas for practically the entire game. Vanderlei Luxemburgo's team is in 14th place and will enter a complicated cycle with several games against quality teams, including the Copa Sudamericana semi-finals. The situation in the table may become tricky if Corinthians remains winless in the league.
The Immortal could have performed better in the last round at the Bragantino stadium. Once again, the team failed in away games. The 2-0 defeat was natural, given that Red Bull never struggled in the match. There is indeed a disparity in Grêmio's performance when playing away from home. Coach Renato Portaluppi has to inject a different attitude into his players. In away games, the Tricolor has three wins, one draw, and six defeats, just 11th in the Série A record books. Corinthians has only lost once at home, so it's not an easy team for Grêmio to beat on the road.
Expert Betting Tips
The game should be balanced, considering the level of play recently displayed by both teams. The Paulistas, playing at home, may have the upper hand but also need to improve their attacking process. Grêmio, on the other hand, must be less passive away from home. I'm going for a Double Chance on Corinthians with Total Goals over 1.5.
