Competition: Brazil Serie B

Market: Vasco win

Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport

Looking to make an immediate return to winning ways in the early hours of Wednesday, Vasco will welcome Ituano to the São Januário.

Starting with the hosts, last seen over the weekend putting in a downbeat display as they were hit with a 3-1 loss away at Sampaio Correa, Vasco will be seeking an immediate response here. Still battling it out at the top of the Serie B table and sat firmly in pole position to clinch a top-flight return this season, the Rio de Janeiro-based outfit will be glad to make a return to home soil in midweek. Quickly gaining a reputation from across Brazil for their rugged displays at the São Januário, Vasco are unbeaten in each of their previous nine straight outings in front of their own supporters, a run that stems back to March 16th. Likewise, with that hometown purple patch highlighted by a thumping 3-0 win against Operario last month, there is no doubt that Maurício Souza’s men should be smelling the chance to lay down a marker here.

As for the visitors, last seen a few days ago putting in a toothless display as they had to settle for a 0-0 stalemate at home against Londrina, Ituano are in the midst of an extended rut. Battling it out at the foot of the Serie B table and tipped by many as a standout pick to make an immediate third-tier return this season, Mazola Júnior’s side have failed to win any of their last four outings. Likewise, with just a pair of wins to their name since the end of April, it should also be noted that the Ferroviário have also failed to find much of a clinical edge in the final third. Drawing back-to-back blanks and managing to bag more than a single strike on just one occasion since May 21st, Ituano should face a tough test here. Likewise, last seen on the road getting hit with a 2-0 defeat against Sampaio Correa, we’re backing a home victory in the early hours of Wednesday.
