Ponte Preta vs Fluminense
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 30th July 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Moises Lucarelli.
Ponte Preta seem to have caught the right momentum as they will come into the clash against Fluminense with threw wins on the bounce in all competitions.
Macaca has been especially inspired in the final third and we can expect the continuation of an impressive attacking form this Sunday against Fluminense who are not popular for being the best defensive side in the competition.
Ponte Preta bagged as many as nine goals in three consecutive wins. Their star man Lucca has been lethal in the last couple of weeks as he already has ten goals to his name in Serie A.
Moreover, Lucca was on target netting a brace in a 1-3 win over Sol de ASmerica in mid-week’s Copa Sudamericana fixture.
The Brazilian forward is clearly our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick at the odds of 6/4.
Tricolor have also been successful in their Copa Sudamericana tie with Universidad Catolica as they claimed a 1-2 win on the road to confirm a commanding advancement to the third round of the competition with 6-1 on aggregate against the Chileans.
However, Abel Braga’s men have been struggling a lot to keep their net untouched lately which is why they managed to win only a single of last six league outings.
Ponte Preta vs Fluminense: Head to head
Each of the last four head to head meetings between the two sides saw home wins.
Fluminense are slightly more successful overall as they have won nine of 19 matches with Macaca.
Ponte Preta vs Fluminense: Prediction
Both sides have been red-hot in the final third lately and we just can’t see how this could turn out to be a low-scoring affair with predators such as Lucca (Ponte Preta) and Henrique Dourado (Fluminense) on the court.
