Gremio Prediction – Can Gremio break into top four?

The hosts have produced a solid campaign so far in this season’s Serie A as they’ve suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 11 matches overall which was a 2-1 loss away from home at Fluminense, but it’s been this solid set of results which has lifted Gremio up into contention for a top four finish.

The prize on offer is automatic qualification for the Copa Libertadores, and Gremio are now just 2 points adrift of the current 4th placed incumbents, Corinthians, ahead of their Wednesday night clash against 8th placed Bahia at their Arena do Grêmio.

Recent back-to-back wins against Ceara 2-1 at home and a resounding 4-1 win away from home at Atletico MG will be a timely boost ahead of this clash, as too Gremio’s solid record at home with stats of 7-3-2 26/15 which includes winning 4 of their last 5 matches on home turf.

Victories over Athletico PR, Goias, Avai and Ceara have been impressive enough but the hosts have also racked up a total of 13 goals in these 4 wins while forwards Everton (8 goals) and Pepe (5 goals) look the most likely for the hosts.

Bahia Prediction – Can Bahia return to winning ways?

After having registered back-to-back wins against Botafogo and Avai in recent times, both by 2-0 margins, Wednesday night’s visitors, Bahia, have failed to win any of their last 3 matches in the Brazilian top flight and face a tough trip to face Gremio here.

Recent defeats to Athletico PR 2-1 at home and a 2-0 loss away at Fluminense along with a point in a 0-0 draw at home with Sao Paulo has set the visitors back a few steps and they now trail their 6th placed hosts, Gremio, by a 3-point margin ahead of this clash.

Bahia have also suffered just 2 defeats at home throughout this Serie A season which includes winning 7 of their total of 10 league wins on home turf at their Arena Fonte Nova, but results away from home have been far less convincing in this campaign.

An away record of 3-4-5 11/13 underlines Bahia’s inconsistent streak on the road this term, but their 3 wins have all come in their last 5 matches on their travels with wins at Atletico MG, Vasco da Gama and Avai – but it’s just 3 away wins out of their last 16 matches on the road.


Key-Facts – Gremio v Bahia

  • Gremio have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 11 matches overall in Serie A
  • Gremio have won 4 of their last 5 matches at home in Serie A
  • Bahia have won just 3 of their last 16 away matches in Serie A


Betting Tips Verdict

Gremio’s recent back-to-back wins should see them across the line here against a poor travelling Bahia outfit.
