Vasco da Gama vs Gremio
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Vasco da Gama.
Almirante have been the best team in the competition this season, and they have raced to the top of the table with a 100% winning record. In the process, they have scored the most number of goals (despite still having a game in hand), and have conceded the fewest as well.
However, they will be tested to their limit, considering that they are pitted against the King of Cups – against whom Ramon Menezes’s men have struggled in the past.
Still, Renato Portaluppi’s men are yet to find their form this season, and could be expected to be dominated by the toppers.
Considering the performances of both teams in their most recent games, expect Vasco da Gama to be the better team on the pitch this Sunday.
Vasco da Gama vs Gremio: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The King of Cups are on a three-game winning run against this rival.
- They had recorded eight of the former ten overall h2h wins.
- However, at this stadium, the hosts have lost just twice in the past 22 years.
- Since 1998, only once have the visitors kept a clean sheet at this venue.
Vasco da Gama vs Gremio: Prediction
Almirante have been the absolute best team in the league this season, and have the stats to back up this claim too. They are on a 100% winning run since football restarted after the pandemic shutdown, and they have scored two or more goals in all of those games except for one.
Meanwhile, their counterparts are winless in their last three fixtures, and have not won on the road in over a month.
Moreover, the toppers also do have a phenomenal h2h record at this stadium in the past two decades.
Taking these observations into account, expect Vasco to continue their unbeaten run for one more week. It definitely is not going to be easy, considering who the visitors are – but Vasco da Gama are up for the challenge.
