RIO DE JANEIRO, April 5 (Reuters) - Internacional claimed their fourth successive win over arch-rivals Gremio by winning the so-called ‘Gre-nal’ match, one of Brazil’s most fiercely-contested derbies, 2-1 on Sunday.

Internacional fans celebrated the win between the two Porto Alegre sides by cheering Gremio’s beleaguered coach Celso Roth, taunting with him chants of “Stay, Roth.”

Gremio, who twice hit the crossbar in the Gaucho championship match, went ahead when Tcheco converted a penalty in the 19th minute but Andrezinho levelled 14 minutes later from another spot kick.

Tempers flared during the second half as nearly all 22 players became involved in a pushing match that ended with red cards for Taison (Internacional) and Rafael Marques (Gremio).

With 12 minutes left, Andres D’Alessandro threaded a ball through for Indio to score the winner.

The defeat ended Gremio’s hopes of winning the Gaucho, one of the regional tournaments that kick off the Brazilian season.

100 years celebration continues

What is the difference between these two clubs in regard to support and background?

I know Gremio was formed by Germans and the support is almost somewhat secular while Inter is the regarded as more the people's club because they played all the non-whites first. But as far as i know Rio Grande do Sul doesn't really regard itself as Brazil in some ways.

What you have mentioned is discussed on here with a little more detail.
