Vasco vs Bahia Today’s Soccer Prediction
The defeat in Salvador was part of a phase of very bad results that ended up causing the downfall of coach Zé Ricardo. Jorginho was hired to take his place before the Brazilian and Brasileirao Cup shutdown for the World Cup in Russia, but he had practically no time to train. After the interruption of 32 days, however, will have the chance to show service.
Even though he is not able to reverse the situation due to the big score of the first leg, the expectation is that he improves the performance of the club in the Brasileirão, where Vasco occupies the eleventh place with 15 points (four wins, three draws and four losses) , and can advance in the South American Cup. Upon being eliminated from the Copa Libertadores, the Maltese cross was ‘downgraded’ to Sula and will pick up LDU from Ecuador.
A change in strategy is certain. The new coach said he wants to use a system with four line defenders protected by two containment handwraps. Three athletes will complete the midfield and in front will be used only an attacker.
The goal is to give the defensive system a bit more safety, which was one of the most leaked in Brazil in the first half of the season. A problem considered serious has been solved. As goalkeeper Martin Silva was off duty after his participation in the Uruguay World Cup in 2018 and Jordi and Fernando Miguel could not be entered in the tournament, there remained only one archer in the squad.
However, Martin Silva has anticipated his comeback and is confirmed as starter for this Monday’s game. You can benefit from the greater security given to the defensive sector, which also had name changes. The pair of behind should be formed by Breno and Ricardo Graça. On the right-hand side, Lenon, who was hired during the standstill period, takes the position. On the left, Ramon gained the position of Henry.There is still doubt in the attack. At first, the holder would be Andrés Rios. As the forward was out of training for a period and not in the best of his physical condition, he could force midfielder Evander to improvise in position, where the club does not have many options. Therefore, it continues in search of reinforcements. To get the hiring chance, during the ‘vacation’ period the Vasco got rid of Erazo, Wellington and Riascos to have ‘space’ on their payroll.
Bahia also took advantage of the stoppage of the Brasileirão and the Brazilian Cup to change command. Enderson Moreira, who was in America-MG, took the place of Guto Ferreira, who was dismissed before the ‘holidays’. However, it did not have a beginning of the best.
Although he managed to reach the final of the Northeast Cup, the new captain failed to lead the team to the bicampeonato. He lost the finals to Sampaio Corrêa, from Maranhão.However, games will not fail to try to reverse this situation. In addition to the Copa do Brasil, Bahia are also in contention for the South American Cup, where they will face Cerro, Uruguay, in the next phase, and must seek recovery in the Brasileirão. With 12 points (three wins, three draws and six losses), the tricolor is in seventeenth position, opening the relegation zone.
One of the reinforcements for the second part of the season was already in the cast. After losing 18 games for injury, striker Edigar Junio returned to the team against Sampaio Corrêa. He still needs to improve his physical condition, but should be available for Monday’s game. , Junior Brumado and Marco Antônio, who were also in the medical department, also received the green light to re-act.
