A group of Grêmio fans was at the hotel’s door for quick contact with the players. The goalkeeper attended to the fans, as well as defenders Pedro Geromel and Kannemann, among others.

– What I can say is for (the fans) to support us, that we’re giving our best and believe in us that I’m sure we’re going to get out of this. I already imagined that there would be this many people, the Grêmio fans always supporting. It won’t be different, it’s always like that and we’ll do our best for them – said Chapecó.

It’s the first time playing in my city, I hope we’re very happy and manage to get away with the three points.

Grêmio is the 19th place in the Brasileirão, with 32 points, and needs to beat Chapecoense to stay alive in the fight against relegation. With a good result, Sport is definitely on the table. The ball rolls at Arena Condá from 7pm on Saturday.
