Vasco games at Sao Januario are the best for atmosphere currently in Rio. Easily accessibly by metro to Triagem and the main stand has the most baeutiful facade of any sports arena.

The stadium is older, and located within a favela, but the sizeable security and police presence should dissuade any concerns you may have.

There's a big room with trophies, and all the fans can take photos. There's a restaurant, the food is good. But it's too hot inside the room. The sidewalk outside it's terrible, it's broken. And there's a store to buy everything of the club.
