Vasco da Gama vs Internacional
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 8 June 2019
Kick-Off 00:30 UK 01:30 CET
Venue: Sao Januario (Rio de Janeiro).
Vasco da Gama and Internacional will raise curtain on Matchday No 8 in Campeonato Brasileiro on Friday evening at Sao Januario.
The hosts barely saved the top flight status last season and they got off to a dismal kick off to the new campaign this time around too.
Cruzmaltina are one of just two teams without a single win in opening eight fixtures and they own league’s worst defensive record with 13 goals shipped in 7 games (almost two per match).
Such a poor start caused the managerial change as Vanderlei Luxemborgo took charge in mid-May.
The former Real Madrid manager did manage to fix team’s defensive holes, but he is yet to pick up his maiden win and this will be his fourth match on Vasco’s hot seat.
Cruzmalino played two successive 1-1 draws to the likes of Avai and Fortaleza before falling 1-0 away at Botafogo last weekend.
Vasco da Gama vs Internacional: Head-to-head
The head to head record also speaks against Vasco da Gama here.
Internacional lead the tie by seven wins ahead of 32nd meeting with Cruzmaltino.
Colorado won two and drew one of last three head to head encounters and they netted as many as 10 goals along the way.
Vasco da Gama vs Internacional: Prediction
The visitors definitely go into this in higher spirits. They won five and drew one of past six games in all competitions. They kept their net untouched in last three league ties, including a goalless draw in the previous away fixture against the likes of Santos.
Experienced Peruvian forward Paolo Guerrero bagged four goals in last four appearances in all competitions. He contributed to an easy 2-0 win over Avai last weekend and he should have plenty of room to deliver once again here when his teams goes up against the weakest defensive line in the division.
Internacional to win is paid at 2.45, while we will alternatively back Guerrero to score anytime at 2.50.
Vasco da Gama vs Internacional: Bet Tips
