Vasco da Gama
Vasco da Gama will be looking for an improved result here after a 1-0 Serie B loss in their previous game against Sampaio Corrêa.
Fewer than three goals per match were recorded in 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Vasco da Gama have taken part. Breaking down the goal split during that period, opposing sides scored an aggregate of 4 and Vasco da Gama got themselves 7. We will just have to see whether or not that trend will end up being sustained here.

- haven't won against Coritiba in their last 7 league matches.
- are undefeated in their last 4 league matches at home.

Team News: Vasco da Gama
There is just one fitness concern for the Vasco da Gama gaffer Vanderlei Luxemburgo to contend with from an otherwise complete squad. Daniel Amorim (Muscle Injury) won’t play.
Team News: Coritiba
Due to a fully healthy squad available to select from, the Coritiba boss Gustavo Morínigo doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all coming into this clash.
We believe that Coritiba are capable enough to breach the defence of this Vasco da Gama team, but it realistically won’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We’re going for a close game with a 2-1 victory for Vasco da Gama at the end of this one. We’ll have to see what happens.
