The worst moment in Vasco history saw massive doses of embarrassment on Wednesday. Cruz Maltino reached his fourth straight defeat – the fifth in a row without a win – after he managed a 3-0 win over Vitoria, in São Januaro. Bahia is still alive in the fight against relegation and the home team is plunged further into disgrace in the final stage of the Series B of the Brazilian Championship.
Wednesday’s match started as if last Sunday’s match had not ended. Frightened, Vasco missed a pass with MT on the left side of the attacking field, Leão built a counter-attack and Marcinho, from outside the area, hit Lucão’s upper left corner. Open the scoreboard with one minute of playing. And the melancholy mood became a horror movie.
Immediately, the pressure of the few in attendance turned against the home team – and the boos had been there since the warm-up. Even with slow passes, Cruz Maltino tried to respond. Andre was expelled from the area but sent. Nene and Kano forced Lucas Arcango to work … but the scoreboard and the insults of the fee-payers stopped.
The second stage started with hope for the home team. The fans decided to cheer, Fernando Diniz made a team change at halftime and there was patience from the stands, despite the team’s low productivity. The problem is that in a 23-minute corner, Talison pulled away from Walber and tested alone to extend the score.
do you want more?
But since everything bad can always get worse, Walber awarded David a penalty. Marcinho turned it 3-0 in the 32nd minute. Then yes: no less than a third of Vasco’s fans left and the atmosphere in the stadium became a funeral for the home team. And even more gig for visitors, surviving the fight against relegation.
