Figueirense vs Gremio Predictions

Figueirense have looked like relegation candidates for some time now and their poor recent form has seen them fall to 5 points from safety with only 6 games to go. Therefore, they really need to win this game but there is not much to suggest they are capable of doing that. They come into this match having collected just 1 point from their last 5 matches in the league and they’ve only won 3 of their last 11 at home, which isn’t good enough in a league where being strong at home is so crucial.

They’ve lost their last two matches at the Estádio Orlando Scarpelli and they just look like a team low on confidence and almost resigned to their fate. Scoring goals has been an issue all season and they average just 0.88 goals per game in Serie A this term, the 2nd worst goal-scoring record in the division.

Given that, it is a bit of a surprise the bookies still make Figueirense favourites to win this one. Gremio are in good form too which makes their task even harder. The Porto Alegre side are unbeaten in 6 matches in all competitions and are looking good in the Copa do Brasil and picked up an excellent 2-0 win at Cruzeiro in the 1st Leg of their Semi Final in midweek. They are still battling it out for a top six finish and Libertadores football next year is in the league though so they do have something to play for and will see this as a good chance to rack up another win.

They’ve been strong since the appointment of Renato Gaúcho last month and their performances on the road have shown particular improvement. They haven’t lost any of their last four away with two wins and excellent draws at leaders Palmeiras and Santos so ,all of a sudden,they are looking a very solid side . The visitors may, therefore, have too much for struggling Figueirense here so backing Gremio 0.0 Asian Handicap at 2.100 looks like the value bet.
