Grêmio vs Goiás for the Brazilian Serie A championship match on Sunday at Arena do Grêmio Stadium.
The Brazilian Serie A Championship starts the 19th round between clubs. Thus, for this Sunday, we present the prediction Grêmio vs Goiás.
The two teams face off with Grêmio playing at home as a super favourite. Besides being hosts, the team is much superior technically.
Anyway, the numbers show that Goiás isn’t making a good championship and has low performance in their games, especially playing away.
The Grêmio team is experiencing a recovery moment in the Brazilian championship after their elimination from the Brazilian Cup. In fact, the squad currently occupies only 11th position in the table, little for the quality of their team. Thus, they add 25 points with 6 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses.
In their last match, the team defeated Cruzeiro by applying a 4 × 1 rout. That is, the team was left free on the pitch and played as much as they wanted. Impressive that the group was accurate on the pitch and scored in all of their attempts.
However, the team plays with the absence of defender Geromel, an essential part of the team. Besides, it enters practically with the same squad of the previous match. Also, playing at home, even better performance of the group is expected.
The Goiás team suffered the worst defeats of the championship, losing twice by 6 × 1. This exemplifies the fragility of the group, but even so, it still stands outside the relegation zone. Currently occupies the 14th position with 18 games. In this case, there are 6 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses.
Thus, their attack scored only 17 goals, averaging less than one per game. Already their defence conceded 29 goals, one of the worst of the championship, behind only Chapecoense and tied with that of Fluminense.
Faced Palmeiras inside their home in the last round and lost by 2 × 1. A game dominated by the opponent who deserved to win the match. Goiás only had two shots and failed to maintain possession. Undoubtedly, it is a team that has been losing quality every round.
We have two teams on the pitch which, although close in the leaderboard, have very different stories. While Grêmio prioritized other competitions, Goiás is increasingly experiencing a bad phase.
Playing at home Grêmio will be a tough opponent to be defeated by a team that has a low technical level like Goiás. In the end, you have to look for a good bet where the odds will compensate the investment, not merely bet on the straightforward victory of Grêmio.
