Vasco vs Racing Soccer Prediction Today
After going through two qualifying rounds to reach the group stage of the Libertadores, Vasco is in very difficult situation to seek the classification. You can not even reach the 11 points that are needed to secure a position regardless of the rivals’ results. The maximum to be obtained by the club is 10 points, which should be enough to take the team to the round of 16.
In the second round, the team has the advantage of doing two of three home matches. Nevertheless, in the unique match that realized in San Januario by the continental tournament, lost to University of Chile by 1 to 0.
Thus, the chance to reach third place and thus achieve the South American Cup is perhaps the most viable goal for the Basque team, because after the 4-0 defeat at Racing in Argentina, the team has a negative balance of five goals, which would compromise the classification in case of a tie in the score with another club.
The situation is quite different in the Brasileirão. After defeating, at home, Atletico-MG by 2 to 1, Vasco managed to return from Chapecó with another point. It was a disadvantage against Chapecoense, but it started the tie by 1 to 1.
Midfielder Thiago Galhardo, who entered the second half of the match in Santa Catarina and was one of the people responsible for the improvement of the Basque performance, could be launched as a starter on Thursday. Affectionate, he did not play in Argentina when coach Zé Ricardo ended up opting to form the midfield with three midfielders seeking to give more strength to the defensive sector. The strategy did not work. The team was not only leaked four times as it saw the rival squander two penalties that could increase the size of the shame.
Out of contention for the Argentine Championship title, Racing defeated the Rosario, away from home, by 2 to 0, on Sunday, April 22. With that, he reached 39 points (11 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses). It occupies the seventh position, outside the zone of classification for the season 2019 of the Liberators.
This vacancy is reserved for the top five. With three remaining games remaining, the possibility of Racing appearing in this block is remote. So, getting among the top 11 placed and securing place in the next edition of the South American Cup seems to be the limit of the club.
Soccer Prediction of the Day Vasco vs Racing
Vasco will once again have to face the problem that has proved more difficult to overcome for the team: to impose a more offensive rhythm of game and to seek the victory before a rival that has the option of acting for the tie. Faced with this scenario, the team was beaten by the University of Chile. The lack of quality in the attack makes the guess in Racing is the most suitable for the confrontation of this Thursday.
