For this competition, they have not won any of the last 4 matches at their stadium. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 42 of the last 65 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. This is a team that scores few times is first and that only managed to open the scoring in 2 of their last 9 games for Carioca 1, of these 2 they came to the break in advantage in 1 and won in the late 90’s in all. In 9 matches in this competition, he never got the comeback in the 5 games in which he suffered the first goal.
Vasco is one of the biggest clubs in Brazilian football, but he has shown great difficulties in recent years and his team is currently not the best. The team relied heavily on the strength of its fans, but now the games will be without audiences and the club cannot be pushed by cheers from fans. Despite this, it is a fact that it has a cast superior to small clubs in the state of Rio de Janeiro, so it enters the field deserving of all favoritism. To this is added the pressure and the need for the three points, to then seek a recovery and a possible state title, which would already raise the morale of the players.
After 4 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses, the visiting team is currently in the 3rd position, without having conquered any point. In their last match, they defeated the Resende by (0‑1), after in the previous match they lost at home, in a match against Madureira, by (0‑3). This is a stronger team with the support of their fans, since in the last 30 games they have recorded 3 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses as a visitor; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in his stadium. In the last 7 games as a visitor for the championship, Macaé registers 1 victory and 6 defeats, which is why it conquered 3 points in 21 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 14 games in this competition, he never got the comeback in the 9 games in which he suffered the first goal. In the last 13 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 4 of their 9 goals between minutes (76′ ‑ 90 ‘).
Macaé tied with Flamengo this year, but in a duel where the red-black entered the field without many players. When he faced another club of great expression (Botafogo), he was defeated. Before the soccer interruption, the team had scored only one goal in four games, reflecting its poor offensive performance. Now playing against Vasco, he should opt for a more defensive style on the field, but he must still concede the goal and be defeated.
