Vasco da Gama vs Fortaleza Prediction & Match Preview

Vasco da Gama vs Fortaleza
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 19 November 2020
Kick-off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Vasco da Gama.

Judging recent form, Lion of the Pici are probably the worst team in the whole competition. They have lost every single one of their games since late October, and have conceded goals in plenty as well in the process.

Going on, they have been also on a dismal run on the road for the past four months, and on top of all that, they have a worrying h2h record against this opponent.

Meanwhile, the Giant of the Hill, who have a comparatively far better record in overall fixtures as well as at home, will take advantage of this lopsided fixture, and try to post the three points on the board.

Vasco da Gama vs Fortaleza: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The latest encounter had ended in a 1-0 win for Ricardo Sa Pinto’s men.
  • They have been on an unbeaten run against this rival since 2005.
  • They have also failed to score just once against this opponent since 2003.
  • At home, they are on a winning streak in the past 14-year period, and they also are yet to lose a game at this venue in the 21st century.

Vasco da Gama vs Fortaleza: Prediction

Marcelo Chamusca’s men are on a five-fixture losing run, and they have conceded two or more goals in four of these match-ups. On the road they are on a three-game losing run, and they have won just one of their former ten such attempts.

Going on, they are also winless in h2h encounters since 2005, and at this stadium, they have lost every single such meeting since 2006.

Moreover, in the past 17-year period, they have scored just once at this ground as well.

Taking these observations into account, expect Vasco da Gama to be the better team on the pitch this Thursday.
