The 0-0 draw with Guarani in Manaus maintained Vasco's invincibility and the distrust of the fans with the performance of the team coached by Zé Ricardo. He has been adding points without showing great football. With 14 points in eight games, Vasco is in fourth place and can gain at least one position in case of victory against Brusque, since Sport, third place, has already played for the round and lost to CRB. Vasco will count on the return of Nenê and Yuri Lara, but lost right-back Gabriel Dias, suspended.
Brusque tries to add its first point as a visitor to enter the fight for the G4. So far, the team coached by Luan Carlos has ten points, all conquered in their four games at Augusto Bauer, and 0% of use as a visitor. In the last round, Brusque got a 1-0 victory over Tombense, at home, with Alvaro's goal 25 minutes into the second half. This result took Santa Catarina to tenth place. Midfielder Diego Jardel, who is recovering from an injury, remains low, but at least Brusque does not have any suspended athlete. The curiosity is about the posture that the team should adopt in São Januário since this is the first match under the command of Luan Carlos as a visitor.
Vasco will have more than 20,000 fans in São Januário and will arrive as a great favorite in this duel. After all, they are a strong home team and take on the worst visitor of the tournament. My bet goes in this direction, expecting a triumph for the team from Rio de Janeiro alongside its fans.
