Vasco da Gama vs Gremio
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 22 July 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama, Rio de Janeiro.
Vasco da Gama and Gremio are set to take on each other in one of the most interesting games of the weekend Matchday in Serie A at Estadio Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama.
Teams will come into the affair in the opposite mood as the visitors will be encouraged by a strong display in a comprehensive 2-0 victory over Atletico Mineiro on Wednesday evening.
Gigante da Colina, on the other side, only drew 1-1 to Fluminense allowing the visitors to snatch a point with a last-gasp stoppage-time equalizer on Thursday evening.
It came just days after Jorginho’s men suffered a Copa do Brasil elimination in spite of beating Bahia 2-0 on the home patch. The victory counted for little as it was Bahia who won the first leg 3-0 in front of their fans.
Vasco da Gama vs Gremio: Head-to-head
Vasco da Gama dominated this match-up entirely when it comes to matches at Estadio Club de Regatas.
Gigante da Colina won 8, drew 5 and lost only 1 of 14 home matches against Gremio.
Interestingly, none of last five head to head matches saw away teams finding the back of the net.
Vasco da Gama vs Gremio: Prediction
Importal Tricolor climbed up to fourth in the league ladder after a victory over Atletico Mineiro. They are generally very tough to break down and they’ve kept three consecutive clean sheets coming into this fixture with Vasco da Gama.
Nevertheless, Gigante da Colina can be a very tough nut to crack in their own backyard. After all, Gremio won just 1 of 14 away matches against Vasco and it’s really hard to see the value in backing them to win here at 2.25 odds.
Even though the hosts did not get the results they wanted in two games after the summer interval, Jorginho has reasons to be satisfied with his troops’ performances and we believe Vasco are worth backing not to lose at the 1.66 odds here.
We do not expect a high-scoring thriller in any case, though.
