Gremio vs The Strongest Predictions


Gremio will be desperate for a win on Wednesday, but The Strongest should not be under-estimated. 

I expect the visitors to offer plenty of resistance and lose by no more than one goal at Gremio's temporary home in Coritiba. 

  • Gremio lost 4 of their last 5 matches (Copa Libertadores)
  • The Strongest are unbeaten in 4 of their last 5 matches (Copa Libertadores)
  • The Strongest have not lost by more than 1 goal in 7 of their last 9 away matches (Copa Libertadores)

Head to Head


Gremio and The Strongest will meet for only the second time this week. The Strongest claimed a 2-0 win in their first contest in Bolivia earlier this season. 

Gremio Form


Gremio return to action after more than four weeks following the recent floods in Rio Grande do Sul. Renato Gaúcho's side will play their next four home fixtures at Estadio Couto Pereira in Curitiba.

The Tricolor failed to win their last two games before the recent hiatus. Gaucho's men were held to a 0-0 draw at Operário PR in the Copa do Brazil after a 1-0 defeat at Bahia in Serie A.

With three games still to play in Group C of the Copa Libertadores, Gremio sit bottom of the section. The Brazilians lost their first two games against The Strongest (2-0) and Huachipato (2-0) before a much-needed win (1-0) at Estudiantes in April. 

Gremio Team News


Head coach Gaucho has a near-fully fit squad available for the visit of The Strongest. Felipe Carballo is the only player unavailable for the home side. 

The Strongest Form


Bolivian champions The Strongest arrive in Brazil with their place in the round of sixteen already assured. Proudly placed at the top of the group with ten points from five games completed, Ismael Rescalvo's side secured their place in the knockout phase with an impressive 4-0 win against Huachipato. 

Unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 matches across all competitions, The Strongest make the trip to Brazil fresh from a 1-0 win at Oriente Petrolero on Monday. 

Historically, El Tigre have struggled in away fixtures in this competition. The Bolivians failed to win their last 23 Copa Libertadores road trips. 

The Strongest Team News


Head coach Rescalvo may be forced into at least one alteration to his selection this week. Diego Wayar could miss out after he was withdrawn 30 minutes into Monday's win against Oriente Petrolero.

Daniel Lino and Jaime Arrascaita remain long-term injury absentees for the visitors. 

Verdict

Considering Gremio's recent inactivity and the excellent form of The Strongest, the Braziilians look far too short to back.

Instead, I'm taking a chance on the visitors in the handicap market on Wednesday.
