There's been ups and downs for these two teams so far this season, occupying positions near the middle of the Serie A table so far. Here's the Corinthians - Grêmio latest:

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Copa do Brasil.

Corinthians form and stats

Corinthians have collected 13 points from their Serie A home games so far after 3-4-3.

The Corinthians crowd went home unhappy last time out, seeing their beloved players lose 1-2 to Atlético Mineiro here at Arena Corinthians in a Serie A match. Before that, Corinthians played out a draw 1-1 when visiting Atletico GO.

The manager V. Carmo Mancini will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Coritiba in only three days.

Corinthians are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 13 goals in 10 games. Corinthians have conceded 16 from these games.

Grêmio form and stats

Playing away, Grêmio have won 3 games, drawn 5 and suffered 2 defeats in the Serie A this season. The fact that Grêmio have won four matches in a row should scare the hosts and makes this contest more interesting. Grêmio has recorded two wins in a row in their away matches and hold legitimate hopes of a third one.

Diego Souza (2) scored in Grêmio's previous match, the home game against Cuiaba that ended 2-0. That result followed a home victory 4-2 versus Ceará in the Serie A.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Grêmio manager R. Portaluppi as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against Guarani.

Grêmio have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 10 league away games 10 goals have been scored. It's not easy to score on Grêmio as they have only conceded 9 goals from these away games. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 1 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.

Head 2 Head

This is the result when the teams met earlier this season; Grêmio - Corinthians 0-0. H2H stats regardless of arena (last ten matches): Corinthians two wins, five draws and Grêmio three victories. As for goals, two matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), eight games had two or less.
