Vasco da Gama vs Cruzeiro
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Friday, 4th August 2017
Kick-off at 00:00 UK / 01:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Vasco da Gama, Rio de Janeiro.
The two sides sharing the same point tally will collide in Rio de Janeiro as Vasco welcome Cruzeiro. Both teams accumulated 23 points each, and registering three points could push them into Copa Libertadores zone.
Vasco da Gama
The home side is under a huge pressure at the moment, mostly due to their underwhelming home displays. Not they are only winless in front of their own crowd in the last three games, but they also failed to score in each game.
Last five Vasco’s home games had less than 1.5 goals scored, so it’s likely the forthcoming clash with Cruzeiro ends with a low goal count.
Cruzeiro prolonged their winless run against Vitoria. On the home turf, they only grabbed a point from a disappointing goalless draw. They haven’t tasted a victory in the last four Serie A games.
The away side netted only 6 goals so far during nine matches on the road. In 14 out of last 17 Cruzeiro’s games in Brazilian top flight, there have been 2 or fewer goals scored.
Vasco da Gama vs Cruzeiro: Head-to-head
Cruzeiro could rely on their head-to-head meetings with Vasco, especially visits. In the last five games at Estádio Vasco da Gama, Cruzeiro triumphed three times whilst scoring three goals in each game.
Vasco da Gama vs Cruzeiro: Prediction
Both sides have their own injury woes ahead of Friday’s meeting. Taking Vasco’s recent home form into an account, most likely one goal could decide the outcome of this match. Failing to score the fourth time in a row would be a disaster for the home side, but also keeping a clean sheet won’t be easy since Cruzeiro aren’t visiting with a white flag. Ultimately, this one could go either way.
