The team's second goal came from Felipe Bastos in the 82nd minute. Off his own rebound from an indirect kick, he blasted a ball past goalkeeper Michel Alves.

After three consecutive draws, Vasco da Gama's win takes them to 26 points, remaining in seventh place. In the 20th round of play, the team will receive Atletico-MG on September 9.
