Ponte Preta vs Cruzeiro
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 22nd June 2017
Kick off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Moises Lucarelli.
Ponte Preta are finally back at Estadio Moises Lucarelli after two very tough away fixtures with the likes of Flamengo and Santos.
Macaca will be hoping to maintain the perfect run on the home patch where they took three wins in three matches this Thursday when they are about to take on Cruzeiro in the ninth round of the competition.
Gilson Kleina’s men failed to find the back of the net in consecutive away fixtures mentioned above, but they also showed they are able to keep things tight at the back as they held mighty Santos to a goalless draw at the weekend.
The Brazilain striker Lucca can’t wait to be back on the home ground where he bagged goals in each of three games so far in the season.
Lucca’s chances of making it four on the bounce increase dramatically since Cruzeiro proved out to be quite vulnerable at the back after allowing as many as three goals to Gremio in the last match of the round on Monday evening.
Cruzeiro have failed to find the back of the net in each of their last two away fixtures against Bahia and Corinthians.
