The two teams are not in the qualifying zone for the semifinals and, therefore, need the victory to improve the situation in the competition. With seven points, Vasco is ninth. Bangu, with five, is the 11th.
The match will be broadcast on Vasco TV and Ferj’s official PPV.
Basque – technical: Marcelo Cabo
Although Vasco is campaigning far below their traditions, Marcelo Cabo will face Bangu with a highly modified team. There are 10 absences, five for prioritizing the duel with Tombense, for the Copa do Brasil, three for medical reasons and two for bureaucratic reasons – the last case involves reinforcements Léo Jabá and Morato, both attackers.
