Vasco Da Gama RJ v Universitario de Deportes live streaming is available on Wednesday with the home side needing to overcome a 2-0 first-leg defeat to reach the semi-finals of the Copa Sudamericana.
Vasco Da Gama are one of the biggest names in South American football but it is now over ten years since the Brazilians won the Campeonato and 13 since they were crowned Copa Libertadores champions.
In the intervening years Vasco have been relegated to Serie B and returned to the top flight in 2009. They qualified for the Copa Sudamerica via an 11th place finish last season but have been much improved this year, winning the Brazilian Cup and with five weeks remaining they are joint top of the Campeonato.
This impressive domestic form has, however, come at a price and manager Cristovao Borges has been forced to rotated his squad for the Copa Sudamericana.
That has worked up until now but they were soundly beaten by Peruvian side Universitario de Deportes in the first leg of their quarter final clash and they look to be heading out of the competition.
The second leg takes place this evening, in Vasco's Sao Januario stadium, but it is debatable just how much motivation the home side will have to overturn the deficit.
They are 3/10 at bet365
to win the match but Borges will definitely have eyes on Sunday's crucial league match with Botafogo.
That means that Universitario have an excellent chance of making it through to the semi finals of the Copa Sudamerica and that will mean the world to their manager Jose Del Solar, whose side have had to put up with some severe problems domestically this season.
They are 10/1 to win in Rio or 4/1 to draw with their hosts but even a one goal defeat would see them progress to the next round.
It is 13/18 at Bwin that they manage that feat and that price looks far too big. The motivation for the match is all of the side of the visitors and they hold a sizeable advantage, it would be a massive shock if they do not, therefore, make it count.
