Vasco da Gama vs Atletico GO
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Friday, 11 September 2020
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Vasco da Gama.
Almirante have been one of the best teams this season in the league, and they are placed fourth in the table at the moment – that too while having a game in hand. In fact, should they win this upcoming fixture by a +3 goal difference, the team would shoot directly to the top of the table.
This incentive should be a huge driving factor for the players to go after the win. Moreover, they are taking on one of the worst teams in the Serie A this weekend.
Moving in, not only are the Dragon placed in the relegation zone as of now, but they also lack experience in the top flight, as they were promoted to this league just the past summer.
On top of that, they also have suffered against this rival over the years in h2h clashes.
As such, expect Vasco da Gama to post the win this Friday.
Vasco da Gama vs Atletico GO: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Ramon Menezes’s men are on a four-match winning run against this rival.
- Ten of the former twelve overall wins had also gone to them.
- They had kept clean sheets in seven of the preceding nine encounters.
- Disregarding a single draw nine years back, the hosts have a 100% winning record at this stadium.
Vasco da Gama vs Atletico GO: Prediction
Vagner Mancini’s men are one of the worst teams in the league, and are also one of the least experienced. They have so far recorded a single win this season, and are placed in the bottom-most tier of the table.
They are also on seven-match winless run, and have recorded a total of four wins away from home since September of 2019.
On the other hand, their opposite number are one of the best in the Serie A at the moment, and had won five of their previous six appearances at home.
And to pile on, they also do have a near-perfect record at home in h2h clashes over this rival in the past 11 years.
Taking into account all these stats, expect a dominating performance from Vasco da Gama this weekend.
