Sao Paulo vs Vasco da Gama
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 28 November 2019
Kick-off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Estádio do Morumbi (Sao Paulo).

Sao Paulo, as well as their counterparts for the day, are struggling to get back into their grove, after their struggles in recent match-ups. Likely, we can anticipate a fiercely-fought game. However, years of domination in h2h clashes, especially at this venue, should help Sao Paulo to score the three points this Thursday.

Sao Paulo vs Vasco da Gama Head-to-head (h2h)

  • 13 of the former 17 wins went to Sao Paulo.
  • No win has been posted by a team on the road, since 2015.
  • 12 of the previous 14 victories at this stadium had gone to the hosts.
  • Four of the last five matches at this ground saw the home team scoring two or more goals.

Sao Paulo vs Vasco da Gama Prediction

Sao Paulo had to settle for a single point the last match-day, as they locked horns with Ceara, on the road. The visitors were leading 0-1 even late into the injury time, but the 90+6th-minute equalizer completely changed the match on its head.

The same was the case for Vasco, though at their home. They were leading 1-0, against Goias, late into the injury time, but the 90+7th goal changed the scoreline to 1-1. What’s heartbreaking was that the equalizer had come from one of their own for Vasco.

This match-day, the home advantage will play a great role in determining the outcome of the game. For the last four years, not for once have a team at home lost an h2h encounter, while at this venue, in the last two decades, only twice have Sao Paulo lost.

Moreover, Vasco had stood winless in six of their last seven overall games, and in 14 of their prior 19 on the road as well.

Combining Vasco’s struggles on the road, and their long history of sufferings at this venue, a win for Sao Paulo looks the most likely to occur this week in the Serie A.
