Vasco da Gama
Suspended: Leandro Castan, Marrony
MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
After two wins in a row, Avai come from a sequence of three losses that kept them only one point above the last position in the standings, as they had a battle against another team fighting relegation last weekend and lost 3-1 away to CS Alagoano, which means that at least they managed to score.
That helps explain why they have the worst attack in the Brasileiro after having scored only 13 times in 23 matches, as well as why they are placed so close to the bottom, but luckily for them Vasco da Gama have been terribly inconsistent – they come from a 1-0 home loss to Santos – and because of that they are still close to the relegation zone.
When playing as visitors, though, Vasco da Gama managed to win three of their last five games away, but those were their only three away wins in the league this year, which is why I expect Avai to beat them this midweek and get the home win, as Vasco are going to miss two important players.
SECOND PREDICTION: HILO - HIGH
Avai have one of the worst defenses in the league. They arrived at this round having conceded 36 times, which made them the team that conceded the most in the Brasileiro before round 24 began, and that terrible defense will help Vasco da Gama score, leading this match to having three or more goals, so we can expect a high score.
HEAD TO HEAD
Vasco da Gama come from two unbeaten matches in a row against Avai, having beaten them while playing away twice.
