Sport Recife vs Vitoria
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 18th June 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho.
Sport Recife will be looking to bounce back after being winless in last two Serie A outings this Sunday when they are about to take on Vitoria in the last game of the day at Estadio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho.
Leao da Ilha struggled a lot to break the deadlock in Wednesday’s home clash with Sao Paulo who eventually managed to keep it goalless until the fulltime.
On the bright side, Vanderlei Luxembourgo’s men have kept their second consecutive clean sheet on the home pitch where they are yet to suffer a defeat in the new term of Serie A.
Vitoria were off to a horrific start to the new campaign, but they seem to have caught the right rhythm winning four points in last two fixtures with Atletico Mineiro and Botafogo.
Alexandre Gallo can thus be thrilled with his team’s most recent displays as Leao da Barra scored four goals in last two outings.
Sport Recife vs Vitoria: Head to head
Sport Recife managed to end Vitoria’s run of four consecutive victories in head to head matches in mid-October last year when they claimed a narrow 1-0 win on the home pitch.
Vitoria still lead the tie by four wins ahead of their 18th H2H encounter with Sport Recife.
Sport Recife vs Vitoria: Prediction
The hosts will come into the game as favourites, but we’ll be careful since Vitoria might take advantage of the momentum and back up fine displays from matches with Mineiro and Botafogo.
Either way, we do expect to see a huge battle at the center of the park without too many goal scoring opportunities on both ends.
