With no reason to use the reserve team, Grêmio should put its main team in action this Monday, August 5, in the confrontation with Chapecoense. The match, which will be hosted by the Grêmio Arena in Porto Alegre, will put the final point on the schedule of the thirteenth round of the 2019 edition of the Brazilian Serie A Championship. The start is scheduled for 20h (Brasília time).
As has been the case since 2003, the tournament is played on the points system. The 20 participants will make 38 round trips. In the end, whoever is at the top of the leaderboard takes the cup.There are still plenty of seats in other tournaments. The top four will be secured in the group stage of the 2020 Libertadores Cup. Those who are in fifth or sixth place can also get there, but will have to go through the qualifiers first. The top six still secure the right to start in the 2020 Brazil Cup match from the eighth finals. Those who finish between seventh and twelfth place will be entitled to play in the next edition of the South American Cup. The last four fall to Serie B.
It was also up to the tricolor to close the previous journey. At that time, however, Grêmio still had a commitment to fulfill for the Copa Libertadores round of 16. Thus, coach Renato Gaúcho sent a team full of reserves to face the CSA in Maceió. It was a goalless draw with the team that is in the relegation zone of Serie A of the Serie A Brazilian Championship in 2019.With 16 points (four wins, four draws and four losses), Grêmio started the thirteenth round in the eleventh position in the Brasileirão leaderboard, which is the last competition in the club’s scale of importance.The holders will only be used on Monday because the tricolor did not have its commitment to the Brazil Cup semi-finals round against Athletico Paranaense can not be scheduled for next week due to the international commitment of red-black. This is the second dispute on the club’s priority list.The main goal is the Copa Libertadores of America, where Grêmio scored on Thursday, August 1, 3-0 at Libertad, Paraguay. In Porto Alegre, they had won 2-0. Thus, they reached nine unbeaten games (six wins and three draws). Will face Palmeiras in the quarterfinals.
Chapecoense does not need to prioritize tournaments. Eliminated from the South American Cup and the Brazil Cup early on, it has long been exclusively dedicated to the Brazilian Championship. This, however, has not been enough to achieve good tournament results.His last victory came on May 26, away from home, 2-1, against Cruzeiro. Since then, they have played six matches (four defeats and two draws). With nine points (two wins, three draws and seven losses), he started the thirteenth round in the eighteenth position.The top hat has not yet determined who will be the replacement of coach Ney Franco, dismissed after the 4-0 defeat to Sao Paulo. Assistant coach Emerson Cris, who was placed as caretaker in the vacancy, remains in the post. He led the team in a goalless draw on July 28 against Bahia in Chapecó. As a visitor, Chape played 21 points and won six (one win, three draws and three losses), scoring seven goals and conceding nine.
Football Prediction of the Day Grêmio vs Chapecoense
The lack of interest from the top hats and the coaching staff in Brasileirão has reflected in the athletes’ performance in the tournament games, but Chapecoense’s fragility makes Grêmio’s prognosis a better guess for the meeting that ends this Monday the programming of the thirteenth round of the Brazilian Serie A Championship in its 2019 edition.
