Thursday's Brasileiro predictions including Gremio vs. Santos

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Thursday's Brasileiro action, including Gremio vs. Santos.

America Mineiro vs. Juventude (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Newly-promoted sides America Mineiro and Juventude will face each other in the top flight for the first time in 20 years at the Estadio Raimundo Sampaio on Thursday.

The hosts have failed to win any of their last nine matches across all competitions, while the visitors claimed their first three points on Monday when they beat Sport Recife.

We say: America Mineiro 0-1 Juventude

Juventude will be on a high after claiming their first victory earlier this week, and they will be looking to carry their momentum into Thursday's clash with America Mineiro.

The hosts are desperate to claim their first three points of the campaign, but we feel that the visitors have enough to secure a slender victory at the Estadio Raimundo Sampaio.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Corinthians and Sport Recife lock horns at the Neo Quimica Arena on Thursday, with both sides looking to claim all three points and climb the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A table.

The hosts have failed to win any of their last four matches across all competitions, while the visitors have only won one of their previous seven games.

We say: Corinthians 1-1 Sport Recife

Both teams have had an inconsistent start to their 2021 campaigns and will now be looking to put a good run of form together to help them move further up the table.

There is little to separate the two sides in this encounter and so we feel that a draw could be on the cards this Thursday.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Atletico Mineiro will hope to return to winning ways in the Brasileiro on Thursday when they travel to Ceara.

The Alvinegro are keen to mount another title challenge this season and sit fifth in the table, two points behind leaders Athletico Paranaense, while Ceara are 12th.

We say: Ceara 0-2 Atletico Mineiro

Atletico Mineiro's draw with Chapecoense was a reminder that not everything will go their way this season, but we expect them to bounce back and assert their dominance in this game, claiming victory in the process. It could be a tough season for Ceara and we think they will struggle against a side with better quality.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Chapecoense vs. Internacional (Thursday, 11.00pm)

Internacional will want to put a tricky start to the Brasileiro campaign behind them when they travel to newly-promoted Chapecoense on Thursday.

Inter, who finished runners-up last season, are 13th in the table after the opening five matches, two points ahead of Verdao in 16th.

We say: Chapecoense 0-0 Internacional

Chapecoense look to gradually be adapting to life back in the top flight and will now be eager to get their first win on the board. Internacional are not their usual selves, so could be easier prey than normal, but we think this one will end all square.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Gremio vs. Santos (Friday, 1.30am)

Basement club Gremio host Santos in the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A on Wednesday, hoping to claim their first victory of the season.

Tiago Nunes's side have yet to pick up a single point in the league so far, while the visitors have accumulated seven points from a possible 15 available.

We say: Gremio 1-2 Santos

The last encounter between the two sides saw an entertaining 3-3 draw played out in February, and Wednesday's fixture could also see both sides find the net.

Gremio are desperate to claim their first points of the league campaign, but we feel that Santos should have enough to secure a slender victory at the Arena do Gremio.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Bahia vs. Athletico PR (Friday, 1.30am)

Brasileiro leaders Athletico Paranaense travel to Bahia on Friday in gameweek six of the league season.

The visitors have managed four wins from four at the start of their campaign, compared to their hosts who have registered eight points from their first five fixtures.

We say: Bahia 1-2 Athletico Paranaense

Bahia's Gilberto has been in fine form in front of goal this season and he could cause problems for the strong Athletico Paranaense defence, so the home side have a chance to get onto the scoresheet on Friday.

However, the league leaders will come into this game full of confidence after their 100% start in the Brasileiro which should give them the edge in this tie.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
