Athletico vs Gremio for the Brazilian Cup semifinal match on Tuesday at Arena da Baixada Stadium.
Two great teams of Brazilian football face this Tuesday in the 2nd leg of the semifinals of the Brazilian Cup. In this case, the Athletico vs Gremio prediction assesses the odds of each team advancing to the finals.
The Gremio has the advantage of 2 × 0 built in the away game. However, Athletico seeks the support of their fans to reverse the score.
Athletico appears in the semifinals of the Brazilian Cup as a surprise. In fact, by eliminating Flamengo, the team showed that it can amaze.
However, the team has not shown regularity in their last confrontations. Thus, in the previous 10 games, there have been 6 losses and 4 wins.
In their last match, they had a balanced game against Ceará. However, they got the victory by 1 × 0 with Nikão’s goal.
Thus, the team occupies the 8th position in the national championship, that is only two positions of the classification zone for the Copa Libertadores.
The Gremio team has one of the best squads in national football. Highlight to the striker Everton, the great star of the group.
However, in the last 10 matches, the team has won 4 games, tied 4 and lost only two.
The team is also in the Copa Libertadores semifinal, so the squad may suffer from the physical wear and tear of the athletes.
Therefore, the team played with the reserve team in their last match, where they tied without goals with São Paulo for the Brazilian championship.
The two teams faced each other last week for the Brazilian championship. Once again Gremio took advantage by winning by 2 × 1.
Although Gremio may have the best squad, a decision is always unpredictable.
Athletico will have to start in attack so the Gremio team will have counterattacking opportunities where they can decide the game.
A goal from Gremio will greatly complicate Athletico’s situation. In this case, we are likely to have a speedy game with opportunities for both teams.
