Cruzeiro and Vasco da Gama to meet in Serie A relegation six-pointer
4420

Cruzeiro and Vasco da Gama will meet in a Brazilian Serie A relegation six-pointer in midweek. The teams are dangerously close to the bottom of the table, as they play a game in hand this week.

With just two games to go, either of the two teams could still be relegated. Cruzeiro are 16th in the standings, with 40 points. They are just two points ahead of 17th-place Bahia. Four teams in Brazil are relegated.

Vasco da Gama are one place ahead of Cruzeiro in the standings thanks to goal difference. Vasco have turned their season around thanks to a recent unbeaten streak. Previously stuck in the bottom four, Vasco da Gama took 10 points from the last 12 on offer.

However, they too can still go down. A win for either Cruzeiro or Vasco da Gama would ensure their safety this season.

A draw would see both teams still needing a result on the final day. A loss for either team would mean a final-day nail-biter.

Cruzeiro won their last three head-to-head games versus Vasco da Gama, including their meeting earlier this season.

The Foxes won 1-0 in the reverse fixture thanks to a first-half goal from Filipe Machado.

Cruzeiro go into the midweek match at home against Vasco da Gama after taking nine points from the last six matches. They are coming off a 1-0 away win against Fortaleza, which ended a three-match losing streak.

The Foxes won just one of their last six home matches in the Serie A. They conceded 13 times on their own turf this term and scored just 10 goals.

Vasco da Gama picked up eight points from their last six away matches. They scored 15 times away from home and conceded 25 goals.

Vasco da Gama went unbeaten in their last two away fixtures, drawing against Goias and defeating Cuiaba 2-0.

Cruzeiro forward Bruno Nascimento leads the team in goals, with seven this term. Wesley is second on the team in scoring with four goals. Nascimento is also the team’s chief creator, with three assists.

Vasco da Gama’s Pablo Vegetti is their top scorer with nine goals. Teammate Gabriel Chaves has seven goals.

Vasco have tallied 35 goals this term, but it is still the league’s third-worst total. Who has scored the fewest goals in Serie A? Cruzeiro have the fewest number of goals, with a mere 30.

Serie A’s relegation six-pointer between Cruzeiro and Vasco da Gama should finish 2-2, with neither team able to get all the points.
