Venue: Estadio Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama.
Corinthians will have a nice opportunity to back up the fine start to the new Serie A season this Wednesday when they travel to Rio de Janeiro to take on the league’s newcomers Vasco da Gama.
Vasco da Gama
Milton Mendes’ men showed plenty of holes at the start of the new season among the elite, but the Brazilian expert can be thrilled with his team’s attacking performances on the home ground.
Vasco notched five goals in consecutive home wins over Bahia and Fluminense. Former Sevilla’s and Sao Paulo’s striker Luiz Fabiano bagged a goal in each of the mentioned wins. He skipped the weekend’s loss to Gremio and he will be the main target for Mendes’ side in the final third.
The People’s Club is off to the best possible start to the new season. The team led by Fabio Carille picked up three consecutive wins without conceding a single goal during the process to claim the very top of the standings after the opening four rounds of the competition.
Former Man City’s striker Jo has been enjoying a spell of excellent form as he already has three goals to his name in four league matches.

The two sides have met each other in January this year at Florida Cup when Corinthians picked up a demolishing 4-1 win to maintain the fine tradition in matches with Vasco.
The People’s Club lead the head to head tie by eight wins and they are unbeaten in clashes with Vasco since October 2010.
Vasco da Gama vs Corinthians: Prediction
Everything points out to the continuation of Corinthians’ impressive run. Jo will have plenty of room to deliver in the final third past the struggling defense of Vasco which allowed nine goals in four opening matches.
