Vasco da Gama v Bangu – Estádio São Januário at 19:00
Sunday evening takes us to Rio as we’ll be looking at the impressive Vasco da Gama hosting Bangu in the Carioca championship.
With the Serie B season around six weeks away, Vasco will know that should they lift the trophy for the Carioca gifting them the title of best club in Rio.Then, they’ll be full of confidence heading into the Serie B season in which they’re massively favourites to secure one of four promotion places.
Bangu will be looking to cause an upset but they’re 7.00 to win the game in 90 minutes so you have to think that their set up will be placed in order to just frustrate and delay Vasco rather than to go and outscore them.
Vasco have scored at an impressive rate of knots in the state championship this season as they’ve bagged nine goals in their last five games. They’ll be playing against a Bangu side that struggle with the defensive side of the game.
The 4-3-3 set up by Vasco is the main reason they’re such a potent threat in front of goal and it’s because of this that they can get their three quickest forwards into action when they secure possession of the ball,. This should be an exciting year for Vasco as the club look to play an expressive style, in hope of gaining instant promotion back to the top flight.
If you get a chance to stream this game on Sunday evening it’s certainly one I’d recommend it as they’re predicting a hot sunny day in Rio meaning we should have an excellent crowd with a great atmosphere. The pitch has been kept in excellent condition so far, so with that added to the weather forecast we should see Vasco play the ball on the floor in an effort to create plenty of chances.
Vasco should have to much for the minnows in this game and I think there’s a lot of value backing them on the Asian Handicap.
