Riveros admits Gremio Gaucho match will be tricky
Wednesday evening will see Gremio take on Brasil de Pelotas in the Gaucho state championship semi finals, with the winner earning the right to face the winners of Internacional versus Caxias in the other final eliminator.
Having not won the title since 2010, Gremio are close to having the opportunity to add another title to their collection and midfielder Christian Riveros, of Paraguay, says his team are ready for the challenge: "This Brazilian team is well assembled tactically."
"It will be a tough match and we have to be ready for the difficulties. We are on track but we have not achieved anything yet."
Gremio reached the semi final by defeating Juventude 3-0, whist their opponents Brasil de Pelotas, something of a surprise package this year, beat Novo Hamburgo 2-0 to advance.
