Gremio vs Bahia
Competition: Copa do Brasil
Date: 11 July 2019
Kick-off: 00:15 CET
If you watched Brazil in the Copa América tournament that just ended, one player who definitely caught your attention was Everton. Gremio’s winger shined, won the title with Brazil, was one of the tournament’s best players, top scorer with three goals (as many as Peruvian Paolo Guerrero, but Everton played less, that is why he won the title), as well as member of the tournament’s best 11. Back in Porto Alegre, Gremio’s captain Maicon looked sure on Monday, talking to reporters, that it’s just a matter of time before “Cebolinha” leaves the club. There are several reports about interest from European – and not only – clubs to sign Everton, but until that happens, he will remain a key man in Renato Gaúcho’s plans. Everton is expected to start in this game, despite missing with his national team for weeks now. The other 10 should be Paulo Victor, Leonardo, Geromel, Kannemann, Cortez, Matheus Henrique, Maicon, Alisson, Tardelli and Luan.
Bahia lost two players during the Copa América break, Douglas Augusto moved to Greece champions PAOK, Paulinho signed at Midtjylland, but on the other hand, four guys joined the club, centre-backs Juninho and Marllon, left-back Giovanni, and midfielder Alejandro Guerra, and more are expected to arrive, most probably before the coming weekend. Roger Machado was obliged to… change things, and overall looked confident that in a few weeks Bahia will be an even better team than what they were before the break. Be reminded, in the previous Copa do Brasil round, they eliminated Sao Paulo, beating them twice by the same score, 1-0, first at Morumbi and then at home.

Gremio vs Bahia: Betting Tips
A simple Gremio win pays 1.62, not particularly tempting, but combined with “under 3.5 goals” that goes up to 2.02.Do you want daily and profitable Betting Tips?
