Gremio continued their pursuit of Corinthians with a 1-0 win away at Atletico Goianiense in midweek, keeping the gap at eight points. They were good value for that victory, as they once again created a host of chances – something they have been doing regularly this season. Michel got the late winner in that game, as Gremio continue to share the goals around.
Another solid performance
They are now unbeaten in six matches, and have been good value for every result they have got. Gremio can count themselves unlucky not to be closer to Corinthians after 18 matches, as the leaders have over-performed this term, scoring more than they are expected to from the chances they are creating, and conceding fewer. Their process is unsustainable, something that should give Gremio hope of successfully hunting them down.
Gremio need to keep doing what they are doing
If they stick to what they are doing, Gremio will have a chance come the end of the season, as they have been very impressive with some of their performances and results.
Atletico Mineiro are a funny one, they were many people’s favourites to win the league at the start of the season, but have got nowhere near those heights. There main problem has been their home form, winning just two of their 10 matches they have played at Estádio Independência.
Things not going to plan for Mineiro
They have lost their last four home matches, including their latest match against Corinthians, a game in which they were very disappointing and deservedly lost. For the amount of firepower they have in their team, they have really struggled to create and score chances.
Mineiro’s only positive coming into this match is that it is an away match rather than a home match, as they are unbeaten in their last five away matches, winning four. The latest of which was a 2-0 hammering of Coritiba in which Mineiro displayed their best attacking performance of the season so far, generating 3.38 xG. That is what they are capable of, so Gremio need to be wary.
What MG are a capable of
This will no doubt be a tight game, with two good teams meeting. Gremio have been impressive all season long, and Mineiro have been impressive on their travels, so it’s a tough one to call. The home team are expected to continue their fine season and get the win a low-scoring match.
Gremio @ 11/10
Under 2.5 @ 4/6
Gremio win to nil @ 23/10
