The visiting Vila Nova side should be favourites in this visit to Paysandu, as the away team holds a 8 point advantage from their ten league games this season.
There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.
These teams have little in common geographically as Vila Nova have to travel 1900 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.
