Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Vasco da Gama v Coritiba game (inc. the best betting odds).
Vasco da Gama
Vasco da Gama will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 3-0 Serie A victory vs Botafogo.
In that match, Vasco da Gama managed 50% possession and 18 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. For Vasco da Gama, the scorers were Talles Magno (22'), Andrey (77') and Yago Pikachu (96'). At the other end, Botafogo got 12 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target.
A common trait of recent Vasco da Gama games is the number of results with a nil in them.
From their previous sextet of clashes before this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on both teams scoring would've been a loser. We will have to see if that trend can be sustained into this next match.
Taking a look at their past results, Vasco da Gama:
- have left without a victory over Coritiba in their last 5 matches in the league.
- have not been beaten in their last 3 league matches at home.
In their previous game, Coritiba drew 0-0 in the Serie A match with Atletico PR.
In that match, Coritiba managed 41% possession and 13 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Atletico PR had 3 shots at goal with 1 on target.
It is worth noting that Coritiba have failed to get amongst the goals over their previous 6 encounters, netting the poor return of only 2. In those fixtures, Coxa have also seen the overall goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 7.
Looking at their past form shows that Coritiba:
- remain undefeated by Vasco da Gama when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
- are without a win away from home in their last 5 league matches.
Head to head
A look at their most recent head-to-head clashes dating back to 02/11/2013 shows that Vasco da Gama have won 1 of these and Coritiba 2, with the number of drawn results being 3.
A combined sum of 11 goals were yielded between them throughout the course of those matches, with 5 for Vascão and 6 netted by Coxa. That is an average goals per game value of 1.83.
The last league meeting between these sides was Serie A match day 11 on 20/09/2020 and the score finished Coritiba 1-0 Vasco da Gama.
On that occasion, Coritiba managed 53% possession and 11 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Their only player on the scoresheet was Robson (90').
On the other side, Vasco da Gama had 11 shots at goal with 3 on target.
The referee was Luis Flávio de Oliveira.
Team News: Vasco da Gama
Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Vasco da Gama gaffer Ricardo Sá Pinto to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Ricardo Graça (Appendicitis) is out of contention.
Team News: Coritiba
With a fully injury-free squad to choose from, Coritiba manager Rodrigo Santana does not have any fitness worries at all before this match. Robson cannot play in this game through suspension.
We’re of the opinion that Coritiba could find themselves up against it to find the net against this Vasco da Gama lineup who we think might well get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re therefore tipping a very even contest with a 1-0 winning score for Vasco da Gama at the end of this one.
