Clash of Titans: More Than Just Three Points at Stake!

Key Stats
– Lucero has a remarkable tally of 21 goals across all competitions for Fortaleza.
– Vasco da Gama have conceded a whopping 38 goals, highlighting their defensive woes.
– Fortaleza have lost six of their last nine away fixtures, a concerning statistic for the away fans.

Vasco da Gama are on a quest to lift themselves from the threat of relegation, while Fortaleza continues their stride to maintain their winning momentum. As Vasco da Gama grapples with the shadows of a potential relegation, a mere difference in goal separates them from the safety of the bottom four, a stark contrast to their triumphant climb to the Brasileiro league just a year ago. In contrast, Fortaleza’s recent form, with just one loss in 12 games, paints an optimistic portrait for the team. Their sixth-place position is a significant climb from their previous year’s struggles. Yet, their record on foreign grounds hasn’t been so reassuring, given their six losses in nine away matches.

Recent Performances

Vasco da Gama’s exhilarating three-game winning streak in September was a glimmer of hope. However, it was short-lived as their triumphant march was halted by a humbling 4-1 defeat against Santos and a barren clash against Sao Paulo. Contrastingly, Fortaleza, under Juan Pablo Vojvoda, have shown immense character, the highlight being their thrilling 3-2 victory against America Mineiro. This spirit could be crucial for their clash against Vasco da Gama, especially given their past successes against them.

Key Players & Team News

Vasco da Gama: On the injury front, Vasco da Gama will miss several first-team players, including Patrick de Lucca, Rossi, and Gabriel Dias. The absence of Chile’s Gary Medel, due to a recent controversy, could see Maicon holding the fort alongside Leo Pele. Offensively, eyes will be on top scorer Gabriel Pec and Frenchman Dimitri Payet, both vying for a spot on the left flank.

Fortaleza: Injuries to midfielder Hercules and forwards Marinho and Pedro Rocha have been a blow for Fortaleza. Yet, with the prolific Lucero, having netted 21 times this season, leading the line, they remain potent upfront.

Analytical Insights

Strengths and Weaknesses:

Vasco da Gama: Despite being in the relegation zone, they’ve shown glimpses of promise with players like Rossi, Pablo Vegetti, and Léo Jardim showing commendable performances. However, their inconsistency and a relatively weaker defence, conceding 38 goals, remains a concern.

Fortaleza: Their place amongst the top in terms of performance ratings highlights their collective strength. Their offensive prowess, with an average of 1.3 goals scored per game, will be key against Vasco. However, a tendency for errors leading to goals can’t be overlooked.

Managerial Mastery:

Ramon Diaz’s approach at Vasco da Gama, though fruitful at times, needs more consistency. His reliance on certain players might be questioned, especially when results don’t favour them. On the other hand, Juan Pablo Vojvoda’s leadership at Fortaleza has been transformative, but he must address their away form to ensure a top-four finish.

Gameplay Dynamics:

The midfield battle might dictate the game’s tempo, with both teams aiming to control possession. Key player duels to watch include Vasco’s Gabriel Pec vs. Fortaleza’s Tinga, setting the stage for a high-octane encounter.


  1. Match Outcome: Given Vasco da Gama’s struggle for form and Fortaleza’s inconsistency on the road, a draw seems the most plausible outcome.
  2. Correct Score: A 1-1 draw, with both teams finding the net but unable to clinch the win.
  3. Goalscorer: Lucero, with his outstanding 21-goal tally, seems the most likely candidate to find the net for Fortaleza. For Vasco, Gabriel Pec, with 12 goals, could be their beacon.
  4. Corner Battle: Historically, Vasco da Gama have averaged more corners per game. Predicting them to have more corners, with a total of 11 corners in the match.
