Vasco da Gama vs Santos Prediction 16 July 2017

Tournament: Campeonato Brasileiro Série A
Location: Vasco da Gama Stadium
Match date: 16.07.2017 at 20:00

On July 16 July 2017 at 20:00 in the upcoming regular game of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A at the Estadio Vasco da Gama the local club with the same name plays against Santos in Rio da Janeiro.

Vasco da Gama showed rather good results in their starting 13 matches of their first season in the national elite division. They could me much higher in the standings than their 8th place in the standings if they didn’t fail in their away match in the Campeonato. They only gained 4 points in their 6 away matches in the championship. As for the home games, Vasco da Gama only lost to Flamengo and Corinthians and confidently outplayed the middle-peasants and the outsiders of the league.

The third, the fourth and the ninth matches in the current season of the national elite division didn’t let Santos gain any points at all as they lost to Cruzeiro, Corinthians and Sport Recife. Anyway, Santos are in rather good conditions now as they haven’t lost a single game in July. In fact, they outplayed Atletico Mineiro 0:1 and before that hardly won against Sao Paulo and even before that they won against Atletico Paranaense in the Copa Libertadores in the round of 16 2:3.

If we remember the history of the head-to-heads of the teams we can admit that Santos were much more successful in it and they were probably sometimes a bit more motivated, in fact. Anyway, Vasco da Gama are playing at home this time where they show rather good results. Moreover, last time Vasco da Gama lost to Santos at home was in the year 2005. Yet, Santos are in rather good conditions now bit they still have to play their second keg game in the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores.
