Vasco da Gama vs Flamengo
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Saturday, 8th July 2017
Kick off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama.
Flamengo are flying high at the moment. Urubu have been enjoying a fabulous form clinching five wins on the trout in the last couple of weeks.
It will be very interesting to see if they can keep the good form going this weekend when they are set to take on the city rivals Vasco da Gama in the 12th round of Brazilian Serie A.
Vasco da Gama
The league’s newcomers have a pretty impressive record at Estadio Club de Regatas where they have three wins on the bounce.
Milton Mendes can thus be thrilled to see his team holding the sky-high sixth position after 11 matches which can be regarded as a decent success for the team which just fought their way to the elite in the last season.
Cruzmaltino will come in the game after playing a 2-2 draw with Coritiba last weekend.
Urubu bagged as many as five goals past Chilean Palestino to close the second round of Copa Sudamericna tie after the first leg at Estadio san Carlos de Apoquindo.
The manager Ze Ricardo was full of praise for his players as five different players got their names on the scoresheet in the thumping of the Chileans.
Vasco da Gama vs Flamengo: Head to head
Flamengo lead the head to head tie by three wins ahead of their 59th derby with Vasco da Gama.
This will be the fourth H2H meeting between the two teams this year as they have met each other three times in Campeonato Carioca 1.
Flamengo claimed one win, while the last two encounters saw no winner.
Vasco da Gama vs Flamengo: Prediction
The visitors are 1/1 to maintain their hot runoff form, but we don’t see them having an easy job at Estadio Club de Regatas which has been a fortress for all teams but Corinthians so far in the season.
However, we are convinced that the fans will have the chance to enjoy a beautiful and entertaining encounter packed with goals and goal scoring chances on both ends.
