Gremio come from demolishing Guaraní in the Round of 16 of the competition, winning their series on a 4-0 aggregate against the Paraguayan side. Gremio have established themselves as favorites to win the game this Wednesday and now they’ll have a very difficult rival to beat.
Santos didn’t have an easy series like their Gremio, and they had to suffer more than necessary to get past Ecuadorian side LDU Quito in the prior round of the competition. They even lost the game in a series that ended up badly with aggressions and a couple of red cards for both teams.

Gremio vs Santos: Storylines
Gremio are having arguably the sweetest moment in the competition and in general. The Immortal Tricolor are undefeated in their last 16 games, entering a great streak that can be extended this Wednesday.
Something that Santos have in favor ahead of this game is the fact that the last team that beat Gremio were precisely them. Back on Oct. 11, the Black and White beat Gremio with a 2-1 result at Vila Belmiro.
Now things are different and Santos haven’t had the best streak in recent games. Something that could favor Gremio.

Gremio vs Santos: Predictions
It’s interesting to know that Santos were the last team that beat Gremio almost two months ago, but this time it looks like the host team will take the victory regardless of how good their rivals are. They struggled last week against LDU Quito and Gremio hopes to face that team and take advantage of every chance they get.
