The situation is not hopeless, but it is far from comfortable. The club even has a remote possibility of leaving the G-4 this Friday, for the first time since the 7th round. For that to happen, Londrina needs to beat Ponte Preta by five goals. Something very unlikely.

With a simple victory, however, the team from Paraná will tie in points with Vasco. The momentum is due to the drop in return performance, and the numbers show there is cause for concern.
After 31 rounds, Vasco has 48 points today. The campaign is practically the same as last year, when it was away from access. The main difference is placement in the table. The bar this season is lower.
In 2021, after the 31st round, Vasco had 47 points, 13 wins, eight draws and ten defeats. It was in sixth place, five points behind the G-4, where it did not stay in any round. This year, despite a similar campaign, the team has been in the top four since the 7th round.
