Vasco vs Avai
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Saturday, 17h June 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama.
Vasco da Gama returned to the winning ways by beating Sport Recife 2-1 on the home court on Wednesday evening.
The team led by Milton Mendes will have a great chance to back it up at the weekend when Vasco host their Serie B rivals from last year Avai.
Vasco da Gama
Luis Fabiano continued with his spell of excellent form since the match with Sport Recife was fourth consecutive to have seen him on the scoresheet.
Vasco have generally been playing attractive football since the very start of the season, but the defense seems much tougher to break down in the last couple of rounds (compared to the very start to the campaign).
Claudinei Oliveira does not have such a predator in the final third since Avai bagged no more than three goals in seven matches of the competition.
Lion of the Island lost each of their four away fixtures so far in the season and it is very hard to expect them changing this poor trend this Saturday at Estadio Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama.
Vasco vs Avai: Head to head
The head to head stats is all tied at four wins, draws and losses for each of the teams.
Avai have been more successful in the last term of Serie B when they claimed four points from two meetings with Vasco.
The last match played in October last year ended goalless.
