Vasco da Gama are welcoming Goiás for another important game after their 0-0 result against 10th-placed Corinthians.

Insights:
  • Goiás has the most dropped points from leading position (25) in Serie A

There’s little time for restitution or working hard at the training pitch these days, with both teams having played their last game less than four days ago.

It's time to recharge all electronic entertainment devices for Goiás, who are travelling more than 1300 kilometers to play this game.

Vasco are fighting like crazy to avoid relegation and desperately need points in this fixture. For Goiás it's their last days at this level as relegation is a fact.

Vasco da Gama form and stats

When playing at home in the Serie A, Vasco da Gama have managed 6 wins, 5 draws and suffered 7 defeats from 18 games.

M. Benitez was the last player to score a league goal for Vasco da Gama and it's becoming a more and more distant memory as Vasco haven't scored in 505 minutes.

Vasco drew their last game, 0-0 away at Corinthians (placed 10th). Preceding that match was the home game against Internacional that was lost 0-2.

Vasco are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 18 goals in 18 games. On the other hand, Vasco have conceded 19 goals.

Goiás form and stats

Goiás have only collected 14 points from their away games in the Serie A, after 3-5-10 (18 played).

191 minutes! That's how long the Goiás goalkeeper Marcelo Rangel Rosa and his defense have shut out their league opponents.

Goiás delivered a 0-0 draw playing at home against Bragantino (placed 11th) in their previous match; a Serie A game. Prior to that match, a home win 2-0 against Botafogo.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Goiás manager A. César as the team has another away game coming up in only three days, this time against Ipora.

Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Goiás have scored 20 goals in 18 league games away. In the opposite end, Goiás have conceded 32 goals in their away games.

Head 2 Head

The teams have played each other before this season, with the result Goiás - Vasco da Gama 1-1 entered in the official records. Numbers for the last ten meetings between these two teams are: four wins for Vasco da Gama, four draws and two wins for Goiás. Over 2,5 goals: three times; under 2,5 goals: seven games.
