Ponte Preta vs Vasco da Gama
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Sunday, 6th August 2017
Kick off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Moises Lucarelli.
Ponte Preta escaped the red zone after a series of quite impressive performances in the final third, but they returned to the old habits on Wednesday evening when they lost the mid-week’s fixture to Vitoria (3-1).
However, Macaca will have a nice opportunity to get back on the winning ways this Sunday when they host the struggling Vasco da Gama side at their Estadio Moises Lucarelli.
Lucca has been red-hot lately as he notched five goals in three matches help Macaca escape the danger area as well as go past Sol de America in Copa Sudamericana.
The in-form Brazilian striker is 6/4 to keep the good form going and score anytime against Cruzmaltino this Sunday which is indeed a must-take bet given the awful form Vasco have been showing at the back recently.
Vasco da Gama
Vasco lost three of their last four fixtures to get out of the top six positions in the Serie A standings.
Milton Mendes’ squad could soon move to the bottom half of the standings unless the Brazilian manager figures something out quickly.

Cruzmaltino have been much more successful historically as they lost only five of 25 meetings with Ponte Preta.
