Match: Gremio vs Defensor Sporting
Competition: Copa Libertadores
Time / Date: 01:15h / 24 May 2018
Venue: Arena do Gremio
Gremio have reach next round, but yet to clinch first place where they have just 1 point more than second Cerro Porteno.
Visitors are third in the standing and this place gives them a chance to secure their continental journey in Copa Sudamericana.
The Uruguayans can miss third place only if Monagas’ upset away at Cerro Porteno, almost impossible scenario.
Grêmio Foot-Ball Porto Alegrense
Defensor Sporting Club
Ernesto Goñi (Yellow card suspension), Diego Viera (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Robert Ergas (Cruciate ligament injury), Guillermo Reyes (Shoulder injury)
This two teams played in the quarterfinal of the competition back in 2007 where Gremio went on penalties after both teams win with 2:0 at their home stadiums
In reverse game, both teams separate 1:1 draw at Estadio Luis Franzini in Montevideo.
Defensor Sporting have been pretty weak up front and now will try to break rock-solid defensive line of Gremio’s. I think that is not going tp happen and Gremio win to nil is my suggestion here.
-Gremio win to nil – 5/6 (@1.83)
-Under 2.5 Match Goals – 1/1 (@2.00)
