Vasco da Gama will welcome Sport Recife to Estádio Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama for a matchday 16 fixture in Brazil Serie B. The last meeting on 14th November 2020 ended in a Vasco da Gama 2-0 win. Both sides have met eight times in the most recent seasons. Vasco da Gama has won 5 matches, and Sport Recife triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 2.88 goals, while both teams score 75% of the time.
Vasco da Gama’s latest fixture against Novorizontino ended in an away 0-0 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair.
Sport Recife’s previous game in the competition versus Cruzeiro ended in an away 2-1 loss. León del Norte had plenty of time to pass around and make quality forward runs. However, the final result was not what they wish for before the game started. Sport Recife played better before halftime and scored in the 19th minute.
Since the start of the season, Vascão is more dominant at home. They have six wins out of 8 games on home soil. Gigante da Colina has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 88% of their home games.
Sport Recife has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Sport Recife wins 0.88 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Vasco da Gama or Sport Recife to win.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 1.32 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 13% of Vasco da Gama’s home and Sport Recife’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 26% of Vasco da Gama’s home and Sport Recife’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
