Vasco meets Bahia this Sunday, in São Januário, with a real chance of entering the first four teams placed in Série B of Brasileirão. It was time to manage the stress at the club, which since last year has been collecting stress when it was at the door of the G-4.

With 10 points, Vasco was in sixth place. To finish in the group stage, they had to win and hope Grêmio did not beat Ituano, away from home, on Monday.
This will be the 12th time of the app Vasco to the G-4 Since last year, when they finished the race without finishing around the top four. In this account, all matches have been taken into account (with the exception of 1st) which has a mathematical chance that the club would consider at least a fourth position. .

The recent history has caused a great deal of stress in the crowd, which ends in the players. In the final interview, coach Zé Ricardo hit that key: to keep a positive attitude in trying not to lose sight of the main goal, which is to enter the end of the match. .
– We know that Serie B is very controversial, but the victory of Bahia will give us the points, which is what we always seek. I keep saying that we have to follow our plan, I see that we really need it. Once again: we will not advance to the seventh, we should, if possible, in the G-4 always – he said in a press conference last Thursday.
Zé Ricardo’s speech gained momentum in the theater. The players, many times, have said that the current team can not lead to the weight of failure in Serie B last year.
– There has been all this stress from last year. I think sometimes, the mind, the team offense, the mix makes sense and the sense of the game. It affects. I do not criticize the fan, who has suffered for many years and suffered many years ago. But it ends up affecting, it’s something that is not with us. They said we were not in the G-4 for 40 rounds. What happened last year – says Nenê, last week.
This year Vasco has had the opportunity to join the G-4, for example. The team opened the fifth to one of the fourth and needed a mix of results. Two of them did happen – Brusque lost to Ponte Preta and Náutico drew at home with Guarani – but Vasco did not do his job and ended 1-1 with Tombense in Muriaé.
See all that may be Vasco Must enter G-4:
6th base The group has seven points and is one of the G-4, although Coritiba, Sampaio Corrêa, Goiás, Guarani and Botafogo are in front of it, with eight. They should have won and relied on a combination of results, but they lost 2-1 to Cruzeiro.
8th rov – He has 10 points and is second only to G-4, with Brusque, Botafogo (both with 11), Operário and Sampaio Corrêa (both with 12) ahead of him. He would have wanted to win and hope for another result, but lost to the Goiás in a match in which Bruno Gomes was sent off five minutes later.
10th base – It has 13 points and is three behind G-4. I would have to rely on a mix of results. Often it happens (blunders from Brusque, Avaí, Goiás …), Vasco beat Sampaio Corrêa 1-0, but simply did not enter because CRB beat Botafogo in a game that had to be completed in check. It is the fifth.
11th base – A point away from the G-4, it’s enough to hold Coritiba away from home and hopefully have an impact on the CRB. The team from Alagoas lost, but Vasco only tied their game. On the other hand, he also saw Operário, Avaí, Guarani and Sampaio Corrêa first and fell to eighth in the table.
12th base – The distance between two G-4 points. He had to do his job and hope for the impact of the next, but he only tied with Náutico in São Januário, the goal being scored by Morato in stoppage time.
13th Base – Three points away, Vasco could enter the G-4 if intercepted by Sampaio Corrêa, Goiás, CRB and Avaí, but ending with CSA in Alagoas, ending at 2 to 2.
15th base The group has 22 points and is second only to G-4, with Guarani, Goiás (both with 23) and CRB (24) before. In the end, Vasco would finish fifth if they beat Botafogo because CRB won the round, but finished tenth with a 2-0 loss in the derby.
17th rov – Vasco did his job by hitting Vila Nova, but the victories of Guarani and Sampaio Corrêa got in the way of preparations for entry into the G-4. Complete the race in sixth place.
18th base – I will enter the G-4 in the case of the easy victory over Remo away from home, since Guarani fell and Sampaio Corrêa drew into the environment. But Vasco fell into Belém.
19th base – Two points away, he should win and rely on a combination of results (Botafogo, Guarani, Náutico, Avaí and Sampaio Corrêa first). But they lost to Londrina in São Januário and fell to 11 positions. Later, it did not open another challenge with the mathematical approach to entry into the G-4.
5th rov – Open environment of G-4, but with four groups first. Two of them won (Cruzeiro and Grêmio). However, with the combination of Náutico and Brusque, Vasco will finish fourth in the event of a Tombense victory. But it just draws.
