Vasco da Gama vs Corinthians
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 29 July 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Nacional de Brasilia, Brasilia.
Vasco da Gama and Corinthians will travel to the capital of Brasilia to tackle each other on Sunday afternoon in the neutral venue. Gigante da Colina are nominal hosts and they should have stronger support on the day.
The defending champion have been playing hot and cold since the start of the new season. They currently sit at a disappointing eighth position, but will come into this tie in higher spirits after beating the sixth-placed Cruzeiro 2-0 at home on Wednesday evening.
Vasco, on the other side, skipped the domestic action in mid-week because of the Copa Sudamericana first leg with LDU Quito. Jorginho’s side failed to bring the promising Serie A form into the continental competition, losing 3-1 away in Ecuador and they’ll have hard times annulling such deficit in the return fixture in two weeks.
Vasco da Gama vs Corinthians: Head-to-head
Corinthians were the dominant side in the history of head to head matches against Vasco da Gama.
Timao won 16, drew 13 and lost only 6 of 35 outings against Gigante da Colina.
Corinthians head into this after winning four and drawing one of last five clashes with Vasco.
Vasco da Gama vs Corinthians: Prediction
Osmar Loss’ men have the quality on their side here, but thy just failed to deliver week after week on travels in this term of Serie A which is a concerning factor for Timao ahead of the Vasco game. Corinthians lost four on the trot away from home in Serie A scoring no more than twice in the process. They’ll be happy to play on the neutral venue this time around, but will still be without the help from their fans.
Vasco lost just one of last five league games and they will no doubt be a tough nut to crack here. Looking at the odds, we have to say the value is with Gigante da Colina not to lose at 1.60 knowing they’ll be up against an opposition which lost four consecutive games away from home. You can also back the Under 2.5 goals FT bet as we expect a tight affair at Estadio Nacional de Brasilia.
