Reason For Gremio vs America Mineiro Betting Tips
Sunday’s Brazilian Serie A action features Gremio playing host to America Mineiro. The home side are expected to claim the 3 points but may not have things entirely their own way.
Coming into the season with hopes of challenging for the title, currently standing 7th and 7 points behind leaders Flamengo, hardly represents the best of starts for Gremio. Renato Gaucho’s troops have not been playing terribly, and are an undoubtedly talented team, but have dropped a few too many points for fans’ liking in their opening 10 matches, currently possessing 16 points.
Tricolor arrive for this match off the back of a highly disappointing 2-0 home defeat to fellow title hopefuls Palmeiras, ending a 15 match unbeaten run at the Arena do Grêmio, meaning an immediate reaction is the target on Sunday. With 9 wins from their last 14 in front of the home crowd, Gremio will still be confident in securing victory but know there’s little room for any slip-ups.
Meanwhile, America Mineiro’s only aim for the campaign is to remain in the league and avoid an immediate return to Serie B, something Enderson Moreira’s men have made a good start towards achieving, collecting 13 points from 10 outings, leaving themselves in a comfortable 11th place.
Nonetheless, just 1 of those points have came on the road, with the teams attacking outlook tending to leave them more exposed on their travels. America have played with an open style in all matches so far this season and whilst that does mean they’ve notched in all but 2 games, they’ve also conceded an average of 1.7 goals a game, a figure that rises to 2.25 when only considering their road outings.
Ultimately, the prices alone will tell you who is the more likely winner of the match and that is something you have to agree with. Man for man, Gremio are a better team than America and with the home crowd behind them and demanding improvement, we do expect those in blue to run out victors.
That being said, America certainly have the tools going forward to hurt any team and as such, the bet that really stands out for us is a Gremio win in combination with both teams scoring. 2 of Gremio’s last 3 home wins have seen goals at both ends and that looks like being the case once again, with a 2-1 margin of victory on the cards.
Gremio possible starting XI: Everson; Xavier, Valdo, Otavio, Santos; Pio, Richardson, Naldo; Ricardinho, Arthur, Azevedo.
Ameirca Mineiro possible starting XI: Jori; Aderlan, Messias, Ferraz, Palmieri; Savio, Donizete, Marquinhos, Serginho, Luan; Aylon.
