Vasco RJ vs Corinthians SP by MagicRat
This game sees the best attack in the league, Corinthians, take on the second worst defence in the league, Vasco Da Gama, therefore I expect Corinthians to score goals in this match. Corinthians have scored an average of 1.85 goals per game, falling to just 1.71 goals in away matches and Vasco Da Gama have conceded 1.53 goals per game, although this does fall to 1.29 in home matches.
Vasco Da Gama have leaked goals this season and have conceded in nine of their last 11 matches in all competitions. Over that period they have only conceded two or more goals three times but I feel this bet rests with the attacking power of Corinthians because they have proven themselves to be prolific scorers all season. In fact, they have scored two or more goals in 11 of their last 14 matches, a feat they have managed in seven of their last eight away matches. In fact, in five of their last seven away matches they have scored three or more goals.
Corinthians possess two of the league best goalscorers in Jadson with 13 goals and Vagner Love with 12 goals, so they possess a great threat up front that most teams have struggled to stop this season.
When the two teams met in July Corinthians were 3-0 winners at home and I wouldn't be surprised to see them score a similar number of goals and I like odds of 2.75 for them to score over 1.5 goals.
