Vitoria vs Vasco da Gama
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 13th July 2017
Kick off at 01:45 UK/ 02:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Manoel Barradas.
Vitoria managed a highly important 1-2 win over Atletico GO on the road on Saturday to get on the brink of the safe zone.
Can they build on the fine display and clinch the second consecutive win in mid-week when they are set to take on another newcomer Vasco da Gama?
Certain improvements can definitely be seen in Vitoria’s defensive performances as Alexandre Gallo’s side took the max advantage of the somewhat easier schedule to gain four points from last two Serie A outings.
Gallo has had huge problems with his team’s efficiency in the final third since the very start of the season, but weekend’s goals from Andre Lima and Uillian Correia are encouraging ahead of the meeting with Vasco.
Vasco da Gama
Cruzmaltino were off to a promising kick off to their campaign in the elite class of the Brazilian football, but they won’t come into the game with Leao da Barra in high spirits following the home defeat to Flamengo in the previous round.
Milton Mendes’ men are among the weakest away teams in the competition having lost five and drawn one of their last six games on the road having conceded at least two goals in each of the matches during the run.
Vitoria vs Vasco da Gama: Head to head
Leao da Barra have been almost impeccable in home matches with Vasco who have never picked up a victory from Estadio Manoel Barradas.
Vitoria claimed eight wins in nine home games with Cruzmaltino and we would not be surprised at all to see this positive trend continuing for the hosts.
Vitoria vs Vasco da Gama: Prediction
Vitoria are 6/5 to win the match which is a must take under these circumstances.
Vasco have been way too easy to break down on the road so far in the season and we also see the value in backing Vitoria Over 1.5 Team Goals at the same 6/5 odds.
