Sao Paulo vs Vitoria
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 8th June 2017
Kick off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo.
Vitoria finally managed to score a goal, but it did not help them avoid the third consecutive defeat at the start of the new Serie A season.
Alexandre Gallo’s men will have a very tough task to end the unpleasant run this Thursday when they will travel to Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo to take on Sao Paulo.
Tricolour will be looking to maintain the perfect score on the home pitch where they took quite comfortable wins by two goals over Avai and Palmeiras.
Unfortunately for Rogerio Ceni, Luis Araujo and Lucas Pratto (bagged two goals each so far in the season) failed to repeat such performances on the road where the team suffered losses to Cruzeiro and Ponte Preta.
Alexandre Gallo will have a very difficult task to keep Vitoria in the elite at the end of this season.
The team is obviously limited in the final third as they only managed to score a single goal in the opening four rounds of the competition.
Sao Paulo vs Vitoria: Head to head
Interestingly, none of the previous 21 meetings between the two teams ended without a winner.
Sao Paulo have been much more successful leaving the pitch victorious on 15 occasions. Moreover, Vitoria have never left Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo undefeated.
Sao Paulo vs Vitoria: Prediction
This should be a one-way street from the very first whistle. We expect Sao Paulo to continue with their domination on the home pitch both in head to head meetings and at the start of the new Serie A campaign.
The home win is a banker worth taking with the maximum stakes.
