Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Saturday, 10th June 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama.
Sport Recife will come in the game in much higher spirits after mid-week action in Serie A.
The Lions continued with their impressive performances on the home pitch by seeing off Flamengo 2-0, while Vasco da Gama suffered a real disaster allowing as many as five goals in the horrific defeat to Corinthians at Estadio Club de Regatas.
Vasco da Gama
Milton Mendes’s men thus ended the positive run of two consecutive wins on the home pitch in the elite class of the Brazilian football.
The good news is that Luis Fabiano kept his marvellous form going by netting a brace against Corinthians to take his tally to four goals in last three fixtures.
Vanderlei Luxembourgo can be proud of his team’s home form since Sport Recife managed to beat the likes of Gremio and Flamengo in last two league clashes at Estadio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho.
However, the problems for the Brazilian expert pop put when the team has to travel since the Lions lost three on the bounce without netting a single goal during the run on the road.
Vasco da Gama vs Sport Recife: Head to head
Vasco have a nice chance to make it all square at five wins, draws and losses for each of the teams in head to head stats with the potential victory on Saturday.
The league’s newcomers won the last meeting with Sport Recife back in September 2015 when Nene and Rafael Vaz brought a 2-1 victory.
Vasco da Gama vs Sport Recife: Prediction
Even though the hosts suffered a disastrous defeat on Wednesday, we are going to back them to bounce back since the Lions seem to be a completely different team when they play on the road.
We also expect to enjoy a high-scoring affair since Vasco have not been playing defense at all at the start of their Serie A campaign.
