Lanus vs Gremio: Preview and Predictions
Gremio carry a slender 1-0 lead to Lanus in the second leg and penultimate match of the 2017 Copa Libertadores final.
A late goal from Cicero was the difference at Porto Alegre, in a cagey affair that produced few scoring chances.
Lanus will take this as they have been under similar circumstances in each of the last three knockout ties in the competitions. They haven’t won in any of the four knockout away games this season and indeed the latest two including the semifinal was started from a losing position. Against River Plate 4-2 in the semifinal, they produced something special, thrashing the local rivals 4-2 after going trailing by 2 goals in the first half.

Gremio are more consistent in their continental campaign.They were beaten just twice during the 13 games in the long campaign, while picking up 9 wins and 2 draws. However, they have been a tad off-color in away games having failed to score in 4 of the 6.
Gremio’s overall form is also decent and they look more solid than Lanus on paper. Their last 7 domestic games produced 3 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss.
