Ponte Preta vs Coritiba
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 20th July 2017
Date: Kick off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Moises Lucarelli.
Can Ponte Preta end the dismal streak of three consecutive losses this Wednesday when they are about to take on Coritiba in the Matchday No 15 of Brazilian Serie A?
The visitors won’t come into the game in any better mood after losing the home fixture to Fluminense in the late evening hours of Sunday.
The managerial duo (Juninho and Gilson Kleina) is under huge pressure following the streak of disastrous results over the last couple of weeks.
The only bright side is the fact Macaca finally managed to score a goal, but the defeat to Gremio saw them conceding three in the second consecutive league outing.
Coritiba announced the exit to their crisis last Thursday, but the team led by Pachequinho quickly returned to the old habits at the weekend when they lost the home fixture to Fluminense 1-2.
Coxa Branca have also been very easy to break down in the recent period as they conceded at least two goals in five of their last six fixtures.
Ponte Preta vs Coritiba: Head to head
Coritiba have, interestingly, been much more successful historically winning 12 of 27 matches with Ponte Preta.
However, Coxa Branca have won only two of 13 clashes at Estadio Moises Lucarelli.
Ponte Preta vs Coritiba: Prediction
The hosts are set as 7/10 favourites to clinch the victory, but instead of the outcome, we are going to back the Over 2.5 goals pick considering the horrendous form both sides have shown at the back in the recent weeks.
Moreover, the value is clearly with the visitors if we know that Macaca are win-less in last four matches.
Ponte Preta vs Coritiba: Bet Tips
The first pick will be Over 2.5 goals Ft at the odds of 17/20.
The second bet is Coritiba Over 1.5 Team Goals at 11/5.
