Gremio to Win First-Half
The Immortal Tricolor are the reigning Gaucho champions and enter the fixture with five successive wins on the trot. In the Copa Sudamericana, they have dismissed the attacking units of Lanus and La Equidad, claiming pole position in the process. With Aragua struggling in the Primera División Venezolana and losing four games in a row, Gremio are deservedly favourites to take home the three points on offer. Akin to their prior outings, the Brazilian outfit should dominate proceedings from the get-go and secure an advantage in the first half.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Gremio have seen three or more goals in their five-match winning run. On Friday night, they will face an Aragua side involved in eight goals over their last two outings, but with only two of these to their name. With Diego Souza available for the fixture, the Tricolor will fancy their chances in troubling the scorers with good effect. Souza is leading the scoring charts with eleven goals to his name, averaging more than a goal per 90 minutes.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
In three Primera Division outings, Aragua have only managed to trouble the scorers once. They have shown improved performances on the continent. Their tally for Copa Sudamericana stands at two, one in each outing. Couple this with the fact that Gremio have conceded in each of their last five matches, all of which they have won, Aragua should be able to trouble the scorers.

While Diego Souza is leading the scoring charts from his midfield position, the likes of young Ricardinho and Ferreira have also impressed with nine goals between them.
After a respectable fifth-place finish in the Primera Division last season, Enrique García has a tough task on his hands. His side has struggled to balance domestic and continental engagements, floundering in both of them. They have only scored three goals in five outings, conceding an embarrassing nine goals in the process. The defence needs to stand up and so does the attacking unit. Their goals on the content have only come from defenders, while Juan Garcia and Alfredo Stephens have fired blanks.
