Competition: Brazil Serie B
Market: Gremio win
Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport
Hoping to try and widen their buffer in the promotion places late on Tuesday night, Gremio will make the trip to the Estádio Augusto Bauer when they meet Brusque.
Starting with the hosts, last seen over the weekend when throwing away a last-gasp lead and having to settle for a 1-1 draw away at CRB, Brusque find themselves in the midst of a recent rut. Still firmly looking over their shoulder at the drop zone and opening Tuesday’s meeting holding just a two-point buffer, Head Coach Waguinho Dias will know that his side faces a real task here. Managing to muster just a single victory from any of their last five Serie B matchups, it should also be noted that the Bruscão have recorded just two victories across all formats over the past six weeks. Likewise, along with losing three of their last four showdowns at the Estádio Augusto Bauer, Brusque have also shown some extended issues in the final third. Tuesday’s hosts have failed to bag more than a single strike in seven of their last eight attempts.
As for the visitors, putting in a rampant display over the weekend as they breezed their way to a 3-0 victory against Tombense on home soil, Gremio are in pole position to book an immediate Serie A return. Along with mustering 10 points from their last four second-tier contests, Roger Machado’s men are in the midst of a stellar 12-match unbeaten run across all formats. With that purple patch stemming all the way back to May 8th, Tuesday’s guests will be smelling the chance to lay down a marker here. Likewise, remarkably suffering just a pair of defeats from any of their 18 Serie B showdowns this season, Gremio have also continued to shine with their displays at the back. Shipping just a single strike since in any of their previous 11 straight outings, we’re backing an away win for the leading promotion contenders in midweek.
Bet: Gremio 6/5 to beat Brusque in Tuesday’s Brazil Serie B matchup @ 888sport
