Santos vs Gremio: Predictions
This is a very difficult game to predict. The last time Santos played at home in this competition, they had trouble against LDU Quito. Gremio could take advantage of that but if there’s a team that knows how to play against Renato Gaucho’s side, that’s Santos. That said, Gremio should win this game with one game of difference.
