Boavista RJ vs Vasco RJ by Sors
Boavista comes from a 1-0 win at home against Volta Redonda last Sunday, fifth for this team in nine competitive games in 2016, with three draws and just one loss in the other four encounters (5-3-1 14/7).
In the point of fact, Boavista will hardly manage to displace teams like Fluminense, Flamengo, Botafogo and Vasco from top 4, given the fact that these four teams significantly excel Boavista in terms of individual qualities of the players and experience, but the hosts already won one point in the visit to Flamengo on Jan. 30 (1-1) and were pretty close to do the same at home against Botafogo at the beginning of the month (0-1/home), so this team shouldn’t be underestimated.
The hosts showed solid play in defense in their previous five games at Estadio Eucy de Resende Mendonca this season, but their top scorer Leandrao (f / 9+4) will serve a one-match ban today, while another key player in attack in Guilherme Costa (m / 8+2) is injured.
Vasco were relegated in Serie B at the end of the last campaign and some of the most important players from the last season left the club in December and January, but this team still owns enough potential to compete successfully in this tournament.
7-2-0 20/6 for Vasco from nine competitive games in 2016, including three consecutive wins away from home against America (3-1), Tigres Brasil (2-0) and Bonsucceso on March 5 (3-1).
However, America, Tigres Brasil and Bonsucceso are among the worst-performing teams in this tournament, while I think that the guests might have bigger problems today, considering also the fact that their top scorer Riascos (f / 7+6) is out due to injury, as well as Eder Luis (f / 8+0).
Vasco will enter into this game as a big favorite, but I doubt that the guests will win this match with big difference.
