Gremio vs Cruzeiro Preview

Gremio vs Cruzeiro 

Competition – Brazil Serie A

Stadium – Grêmio Arena

Date: 12th October 2017

Kick-off time – 01:45 GMT

Gremio welcome Cruzeiro in this Brazilian Serie A game as they look to build on their 1-0 win over Fluminense last time out.

Gremio are currently third on the league table with 46 points from 26 games, one point behind Santos who are currently second and 2 points ahead of their visitors in this game.

They will be looking to get at least a point from this encounter to keep them ahead of their opponents.

Not winning this game could see them fall behind Pameiras who are 5th with 43 points.

Gremio have been less than impressive recently as they have won only two of their last five games and those victories have come with only 1-0 score lines.

They need to improve their goal scoring if they still have hopes of winning the title.

Cruzeiro are currently 4th in the league table and they will be hoping to topple their host after this game.

They currently have 44 points from 27 games – having played a game more, they will need a win to remain realistically in the hunt for the title.

They are currently on a good run of form having won four of their last five games including a penalty win over Flamengo in a cup match.

They look good for the win in this game but that is much easier said than done.
