Gremio will travel to Rio de Janeiro for their Matchday 7 Serie A clash at Fluminense just days after their home fixture against Bahia, where they hope to extend their fine form and maintain consistency. They’ve been great and bagged seven wins in their last eight outings across competitions, but we don’t feel they’ll be able to snatch all three points here too.
Fluminense have returned to fine home form since their Copa do Brasil loss to their rivals (0-2) in early June and earned a win (2-1 over Vitoria) and a draw (1-1 against Atletico PR) in two outings. While they have suffered yet another away loss, beaten by Palmeiras (3-1) on Saturday.
Flu have had a poor streak on the road which has made their form unpredictable and kept them out of the league’s top 6 so far. However, they’ve looked better in front of the home fans and it does feel a longshot to assume the visitors can snatch a win at Estadio Jornalista Mario Filho once again.
However, we’re surely in for a thriller and the home side will need to outgun the in-form Gremio attacking line (who have netted 17 goals in their last five games) to lock the points on the day.
Interestingly, the sides have met twice in 2017 already and Gremio have bagged wins on both occasions, beating their rivals 3-1 and 0-2 in two Copa do Brasil matches. They’ve thus turned narrow records their way, where Imortal Tricolor have 14 wins, 12 draws, and 13 losses but we don’t believe they’re building on the tally here.
