Internacional, who have the most clean sheets (7) in Serie A, are steadily winning Serie A games and points here at Estádio José Pinheiro Borda. 5 wins, 2 draws and 0 defeats is the summary from 7 games.

A good away victory last time out for Internacional, who won 5-3 against Sport Recife (placed 10th). Before that, Internacional had a home game versus Atletico PR which ended with a victory 2-1.

As you can tell by the result above, the goals flowed freely in the previous game and the stadium rocked. Could there be another goal fest today?

Vasco da Gama form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Vasco da Gama so far with only 7 points returning home. The records show 2-1-4 (win-draw-lose). Three might be a magic number, but there's been little wizardry in Vasco's last three away games as they have all been lost. Recent form does not give Vasco da Gama much hope, as the visitors have lost three games in a row. Internacional will be a tough nut to crack.

Vasco da Gama's previous game was their home loss versus Flamengo (1-2). It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Bahia wasn't a success with a 0-3 loss.

A new game in only three days for Vasco, the Serie A home match versus Corinthians. Busy days.

Vasco find the net regularly in their away games. 10 goals from 7 away fixtures in the league. For Vasco da Gama, more than two goals on average per game end up in their own net.

Head 2 Head

Last ten meetings between the teams: Internacional won four, Vasco da Gama won three and three draws. six games with over 2,5 goals, four matches with two goals or less.
