Sao Paulo vs Vasco da Gama
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 20th July 2017
Kick off at 01:45 UK/ 02:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo.
Sao Paulo just can’t seem to find a breakthrough after a promising start to the new Serie A campaign.
Tricolor dropped down to the danger zone after failing to claim a single victory in nine consecutive fixtures.
Can they finally end the dismal run this Wednesday when they host the league’s newcomers Vasco da Gama?
Team’s owners are slowly starting to lose the patience with Dorival Junior who will have an imperative to pick up a positive result against Vasco.
Sao Paulo are generally much stronger on the home patch, but the team is winless in last three fixtures at Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo mainly thanks to vulnerabilities in the defensive line which allowed five goals in last three home games against the likes of Atletico Mineiro, Fluminense and Atletico GO.
Vasco da Gama
Milton Mendes, on the other side, can be happy with his team’s current form as Vasco lost only a single of last five matches.
Cruzmaltino seem to have improved their defensive displays as the team conceded no more than a single goal in last two games with Vitoria and Santos.
Sao Paulo vs Vasco da Gama: Head to head
Tricolor have a decent run in head to head matches with Cruzmaltino as Sao Paulo won five and drew two of last seven H2H meetings with Vasco da Gama.
It is also interesting to note that most of the previous matches between the two teams offered goal fests.
Sao Paulo vs Vasco da Gama: Prediction
Sao Paulo are 7/10 favourites to claim the victory in front of their fans, but we will rather back goals since we just can’t see the hosts keeping the clean sheet in this one.
