Brazilian Serie A
Date: Thursday, 22 November 2018
Kick-Off at 21:00 UK / 22:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama (Rio de Janeiro).
Sao Paulo picked up a narrow 1-0 victory over Cruzeiro at the weekend to stay in touch with Gremio in the battle for the top-four finish in Serie A. These two likes are lock on points with three games left to play meaning Tricolor will travel to Rio de Janeiro highly motivated to grab the result against Vasco da Gama on Thursday evening.
The hosts took just one point from last three rounds and they are now in danger of getting relegated to the second division. Gigante da Colina are only a single point above the red zone at the moment and they’ll be desperate to bring a poor streak of results to an end here against Sao Paulo.
