Vasco da Gama vs Fortaleza Predictions and Betting Tips

One solitary game is scheduled for Thursday in Brasileiro Serie A this Thursday much to the delight of Brazilian football fans. Vasco da Gama take on Fortaleza at the São Januário for this said game. Which side will manage all three points in this game?

This is set to be the first meeting between both sides in the 20/21 season. However, it is to be noted that the home side hasn't lost to their opponents over the past four meetings. Their most recent meeting ended in a 1-0 win for Vasco da Gama. As such, their fans will certainly hope they make it two wins from two games.

Early relegation worries for the home side

Sa Pinto and his troops find themselves level on points with Paranaense who are 17th place- the final relegation place. Although Vasco has played a game less than their immediate rivals, they need to start racking up the results so as to avoid relegation heartbreak at the end of the season. With a goal in either half, they got the better of Sport Recife in their most recent game.

Fortaleza keen on holding on to 12th place

Fortaleza is currently struggling for form and will be heading into this game off the back of five consecutive losses. As such, they seem to be losing grip of the Copa Sudamericana spot with Ceara and Atletico GO closing in. They were on the wrong end of a five-goal thriller in their most recent game against Sao Paulo. With the game perfectly poised at 2-2, Luciano grabbed the winner only nine minutes from time condemning Fortaleza to their fourth straight league loss.
