Gremio bounces back with a victory against Fluminense

Gremio got out of the bad football moment it was going through, even though it is at the top of the standings in the country's main tournament, the Brasileirao Championship, when this Sunday it faced Fluminense at the Gremio Arena Stadium, winning 2-1.

Luis Suárez was in the starting lineup, despite having a significant goal drought.

The gaúcho team had played two away matches in which they drew 1-1 against Goiás and lost to Vasco Da Gama with a score of 1-0.

That's what they wanted to change this Sunday against the team that includes former Real Madrid full-back Marcelo, whom Suárez faced several times in the Barcelona derby, and Uruguayan player Leonardo Fernández (who came on as a substitute in the second half), among others.

Gremio's coach, Renato Portaluppi, decided on the following starting eleven: Gabriel Grando; Fabio, Rodrigo Ely, Bruno Alves, Reinaldo; Ronald, Villasanti; Bitello, Ferreira; Joao Pedro, and Luis Suárez.

On the other hand, once again, Uruguayan Felipe Carballo was not included in the squad, as he was given a rest.

The match

Fluminense had the first dangerous play at the 4-minute mark.

Marcelo made a solo run down the left and his well-placed low cross wasn't touched by Ganso, which would have been the first goal.

Shortly after, at 8 minutes, Argentinean Germán Cano found himself alone, unmarked, and his shot was well saved by Gremio's goalkeeper, Gabriel Grando. The gaúcho team showed major weaknesses in defense.

Moments later, Grando denied another clear goal opportunity after a corner from the left.

And at the 18th minute, with Fluminense's dominance, Cano scored the opener to make it 1-0 for Fluminense.

At the 20th minute, the gaúchos had a shot from left-back Reinaldo, but it went straight into the hands of the opposing goalkeeper.

Then, Luis Suárez had to provide an assist for Bitello to equalize the match at the 24th minute, when Gremio was clearly less dominant than its opponent.

Just before the end of the first half, Gremio scored their second goal. Ferreira appeared and with a well-placed shot, made it 2-1 for Gremio.

In the second half, Uruguayan Leonardo Fernández came on for Fluminense to try to provide more depth and search for a goal.

Suárez has shown great frustration with his teammates when they attack, as they have not given him a single good pass.

"Give me a good one! Give me a goooood one!" he asked Bitello.

And at the 70th minute, Fluminense equalized, once again from a play down the left, and again through Cano. But VAR ruled it out for offside.

Shortly after, André received a yellow card for a strong tackle on Luis Suárez.

At the 31st minute, Gremio had a goal disallowed from Villasante against, but when the play started, Suárez was slightly offside according to VAR.

Five minutes later, Suárez was booked for protesting.

And so, suffering a bit at the end, with 11 minutes of added time, Gremio returned to victory after a while, with Suárez playing the full 90 minutes.
