Venue: Estádio Moisés Lucarelli (São Paulo).
Ponte Preta are desperate for three points as they welcome the title contenders Gremio for the Serie A clash on Wednesday evening.
The relegation candidates Ponte Preta are seen struggling for wins lately. Their last 11 games saw 2 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses. Yet, with 35 points in the bag, they could move up to safety with a win depending on results elsewhere.
Home form is something that definitely gives Ponte Preta some hope in avoiding the drop. The defeated the league leaders Corinthians 1-0 last time up and had picked up 2 wins and a draw from the last four.
Gremio had fallen off from the title challenge after a series of poor performances off-late. Only one win came from the last four, which pushed them to third in the table and let Santos overtake them. In between, they managed to creep into the Copa Libertadores finals with a win over Bolivian side Barcelona SC on a 3-1 aggregate win.
Away from in recent months have been extremely poor from Gremio with 1 win coming from the last six. Also, they managed to score just twice in the process.
Ponte Preta vs Gremio: Head-to-head
The reverse of the corresponding fixture is a 3-1 win for Gremio.
The team playing at home is unbeaten in the last 20 meetings between them in all competitions; 12 wins and 8 draws.
So, Ponte Preta’s unbeaten 10 games in the period saw 5 wins and 5 draws. Yet, only 1 of the last five is a win.
Ponte Preta vs Gremio: Predictions
This is expected to another tight clash with Gremio being less inspiring in away games lately. Ponte Preta is under some pressure to come out of the shell and respond with a positive performance. Therefore, I do believe the hosts are well poised to take at least a draw from the game.
