Vasco vs São Paulo – Brazilian Serie A : VASCO’s ANALYSIS:Vasco hosts São Paulo this Sunday at the Maracanã…
This is a match of extreme importance for Vasco da Gama, due to the fact that they’re still fighting to qualify for the next Copa Libertadores.
The team is in 8th place with 48 points, 2 points behind Flamengo, that would be the last time ensuring a spot in the Copa Libertadores if the league ended today.
They are coming off an excellent streak, 9 unbeaten matches, and the team who was fighting to avoid relegation is now dreaming of higher flights.
The big absence for the team is Luís Fabiano. The attacker didn’t attend practice and is out.
On the defence, Breno will also miss the match, while the starting line-up should be very similar to the one they used against Sunday away from home on the last round.
SÃO PAULO’s ANALYSIS:
São Paulo, just like Vasco, has also climbed on the league table. Up until very recently,
they were fighting to escape the relegation zone, but a good streak of results allowed the team to even dream about qualifying for the Copa Libertadores.
The team in in 12th place with 44 points and is coming off 4 unbeaten matches. They are on a mid-table position, 6 points away from the Libertadores’ spots and 8 points above the relegation zone.
I believe that it will be hard for both situations to happen, but the teams have been developing their football, and can maybe be rewarded in the end of this competition.
The team scored in 18 of their last 20 matches, and that can be a big help for my bet.
Vasco vs São Paulo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is a match between both teams who are looking for the same objective. São Paulo is more technical, but Vasco, playing at home, should have the initiative at the start of the match.
I don’t see neither of these teams bothering with defensive actions.
Vasco has been taking advantage well of the opponents who go on the attack, just like we saw against Santos, and São Paulo has been scoring in every match.
I think that both teams will score, so this line should also be easily beaten.
