Vasco da Gama vs Sao Paulo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 16 August 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Vasco da Gama (Rio de Janeiro).
Vasco da Gama is on a three-game winning streak in the schedule, including a 2-0 win at home against Sport Recife last time out in the league and a double win in Carioca earlier.
Sao Paulo has also started the season with a win to their records. They will also visit after a 1-0 home win against Fortaleza in their league clash.
Even in their h2h meetings with the host, their most recent encounter was a 1-0 home win in November 2019. The host has stayed unbeaten at home in the past four h2h clashes with the Tricolors.
Both teams have kept a clean sheet in their opening matches this season. So, we can expect only a couple of goals in the encounter by the time the fat lady sings.

Vasco da Gama vs Sao Paulo Prediction
Playing on the back of a clean sheet win at home will probably be the best start to the season and a good promoter prior to a home match. However, Sao Paulo was at the ninth spot last season while the host was at the 12th position in the league table.
With their overall better performance, the Tricolor stands a chance to return home with something from the clash. The safest bet for the punters will be a draw no bet over Sao Paulo to yield decent returns in the encounter.
As mentioned earlier, both teams have put up a vigorous defense in their respective opening matches and hence, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be sufficient in the game from the goals area.
