Botafogo - Gremio
Botafogo welcomes Gremio in the 8`th round of the Serie A. The hosts have 15 points and 5-0-2 so far and they are 4`th. Gremio was fourth last season but now they have problems. They are only 13`th with 8 points and 2-2-4 so far. The home coach, Barocca, has been instrumental for the team success lately and in 10 matches since he took over they hardly know losses. The team is compact and loves possession. They have been really hard to beat on the home ground and in 20 something home matches have lost twice. They have 3-0-0 so far this season.
Gremio had matches coming thick and fast but now they have a little break. They have won 3 of the last 5 matches but still not away from home this season. The last time, Bahia was the one that collected the win. Gremio has 0-2-2 away from home and I don`t see them picking up a win today. They will also miss the key scorer Everton and 3 other regulars. Botafogo should be the favorite at home.
