Sport Recife PE vs Ponte Preta by Sors
However, the away games have been a serious issue for Sport Recife through the entire season so far (2-2-12 11/29), but the hosts are doing much better at Estadio Ilha do Retiro, having recorded eight wins in their previous sixteen home games in the league (8-5-3 30/21).
It’s obvious that this match is of great importance for the home team, simply because Sport Recife has just two-point advantage over the teams in the relegation zone and the hosts will play at Estadio Ilha do Retiro only two more times in the last five rounds of the season.
Daniel Paulista has almost a full squad to choose from, with the exception of Gabriel Xavier (d / 30+0).
The guests are in the middle of the standings, with a comfortable ten-point advantage over the teams in the relegation zone and still with chances to qualify for the preliminary round of Copa Libertadores, although it’s very unlikely considering the current form of this team.
2-0-4 6/9 for Ponte Preta from the previous six rounds, but those two victories came at Estadio Moises Lucarelli and against opponents from the relegation zone (2-0 vs. Vitoria and 3-0 vs. Santa Cruz), while the guests have recorded three consecutive defeats in their last three visits to Atletico Paranaense (0-3), Cruzeiro (0-2) and Sao Paulo last Saturday (0-2) and ten in sixteen away games in the league (2-4-10 13/31).
Roger (f / 26+8) will miss this match due to suspension.
I think that Sport Recife will manage to win three vital points from this home match against Ponte Preta.
