The second leg of the Round of 32 of the Copa Do Brasil between Vasco Da Gama and Boavista is here. Vasco carry a 1:0 lead from the first leg, and will look to finish the job and move to the 1/8 final. Boavista will hope to overturn the first-leg deficit and upset the favorites.
Vasco Da Gama have been on a mixed run of form - in their last ten, they’ve managed to win just five, drawing three, and losing two. Manager Marcelo Cabo will hope his troops can find consistency, as there will be more difficult opposition to face as they progress in the next rounds. Scoring doesn’t seem to be their problem, but keeping the ball out of their own net does, so they must solidify their defense if they want to have a shot at winning the cup. Should they win tonight, they will face either Flamengo or Coritiba, two sides who are very dangerous.
Boavista on the other hand, have been struggling for the better part of the season. Their recent form is far from encouraging, as they’ve managed to win just two of their last ten, drawing four and losing a further four. First team managers Jesualdo Ferreira and Vasco Seabra will hope to get the team on the right track, and a win here would do a world of good in turning their fortunes around and providing a breath of fresh motivation for the players. With a hard run of games ahead of them, this game can serve as the catalyst to save their season - and their cup run!
