Our Corinthians v Grêmio tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below (including the best match odds).
Corinthians will be looking for an improved result here following the 1-2 Serie A loss in their previous game against Atlético Mineiro.
In that game, Corinthians managed 32% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 1 on target. The scorer for Corinthians was Matheus Davó (6'). On the other side, Atlético Mineiro had 13 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Guilherme Arana (61') and Marrony (83') scored for Atlético Mineiro.
It has been all too rare in recent games where Corinthians haven’t conceded. The facts show that Timão have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 6 goals during that time. Such a pattern won’t necessarily be continued into this game, though.
Taking a look at their past results, Corinthians:
- are unbeaten in the league by Grêmio in their previous 3 games.
- have not registered a win against Grêmio in their last 6 league games.
Grêmio will come into the clash following on from a 2-0 Copa do Brasil win with the downing of Cuiabá in their last outing.
In their last 6 clashes, Grêmio have amassed the sum of 12 goals. Tricolor dos Pampas have also managed to score on each one of those occasions. During those fixtures, they’ve had 4 goals scored by their opponents.
Looking at their past form shows that Grêmio:
- haven't been beaten by Corinthians in away games against them for the last 5 league games. A very good run of results for them.
- are unbeaten in their previous 3 away league matches.

Our assessment is that Grêmio and Corinthians could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a draw. That’s why we have predicted a very close game with a 1-1 score at the end of the 90.
