Ponte Preta vs Vasco by Saconex
Ponte Preta (15) vs Vasco da Gama (10)
Ponte Preta are coming from their 3-1 loss away vs Vitoria (19) last. Before this they grabbed 3 straight wins, specially the 4-0 win vs Coritiba (13) was impressing. They are by far much better at home vs on their travels, with a home record of 5-0-2 and 14-7 goal difference. They have a average of 2.59 goals per match in the league. Will miss Yago, Fernando Bob & Joao Vitor tonight.
Vasco da Game are coming from 2 straight home losses vs Atletico PR (11) & Cruzeiro (7). With only 1 win last 5 matches, they have to start picking more points to avoid the danger zone in the bottom of the league. They are standing with a away record of 2-1-5 and 10-16 goal difference, and their matches this season has a average of 2,83 goals. Rafael Marques are suspended. Kelvin, Paulao & Marcelo Mattos are unavailable here. Breno are doubtful.
* 5 of 7 Ponte Preta home games this season ended with over 2,5 goals.
* 6 of 8 Vasco da Game away matches this season ended with over 2,5 goals.
At the moment it is very tight in the middle of the Brazilian Serie A, and Ponte Preta will actually pass Vasco at the table with a win here. In a match where both teams probably feel they can win, with Ponte Preta as favourites, I expect to see goals. Also, Ponte Preta striker Lucca (second top scorer in the league) are in very good form with 5 goals scored last 4 matches. Don’t be surprised if he finds the net again.
