Fortaleza vs Vasco da Gama Prediction
Vasco is the worst team in the competition. They are dead-last in the table and have not won any game so far.
The team has also let in the most goals so far in the competition. They also lost the last four away ties in a row and recorded just a single goal from these last four trips. They are winless in their last five overall games and was so in eight of their last nine as well.
Moreover, Fortaleza was unbeaten in 24 of their last 25 home ties, and importantly, they won seven of their last nine home fixtures.
In the last ten months, the team has lost just once at home, and that came against the so-far-undisputed Sao Paulo.
As things stand, expect the hosts to have a jolly good time on the pitch this Sunday.
