Vasco da Gama and Flamengo will close Matchday 9 of the Brasileirão with the obligation to win since the situation of both teams is not good.
Cruzmaltino has seven games without a win and is in the relegation zone, so they must start showing that they don’t want to go back to Série B.
The Mengão have managed to get results but the level of the team has been much lower than what we were used to.
Monday, June 5 at 7:00 pm ET in the São Januário
Vasco da Gama +240
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Vasco da Gama?
Vasco da Gama’s start after their return to the first division was encouraging after a 1-2 away win over Atlético Mineiro, but it was a mirage. After that they have not won again and have 3 draws and 4 defeats, occupying 18th place and being in the relegation places.
Last weekend they lost to Fortaleza (2-0) and at home, they have lost the last 2 games, besides, counting the Carioca Tournament and the Copa do Brasil, they have 5 matches without victory with 3 defeats.
Players like Pedro Raul and Alex Texeira are in charge of leading the offense, but they have not had very good performances, while the young Andrey Santos, one of the great promises of Brazilian soccer and who was recently bought by Chelsea and left on loan until mid-year at Vasco, is playing the U-20 World Cup, so it is not believed that he can help his team more.
Why Bet on Flamengo?
Although Flamengo is in seventh place, their performances have not been good, but they have been improving and hope to continue on this upward curve. This Thursday they defeated Fluminense in the round of 16 of the Copa do Brasil and advanced to the quarterfinals with goals from Giorgian De Arrascaeta and Gabigol, two players the team needs to have in top condition.
Counting all tournaments, the Mengão has 7 games unbeaten, but in their last league game, they drew at home with Cruzeiro (1-1) while in the Copa Libertadores, they failed to beat Ñublense in Chile (1-1) and are in second position with only 5 points in 4 matches.
In the Brasileirão 2023, they have played 3 away games, losing to Internacional (2-1) and Paranaense (2-1), and beating Bahia (2-3), who received 2 red cards with 15 minutes remaining.
In the league, they have an unbeaten run of 8 matches without losing to Vasco and the last time they did so was in 2015.
Final Betting Analysis: Vasco da Gama vs. Flamengo
Although it is not the best moment for both, Vasco da Gama’s situation is much worse and shows no signs of improvement, the opposite is the case of Flamengo who comes motivated after eliminating Fluminense, so we believe they will be the winners.
