Operário vs Ponte Preta for the Brazilian Serie B championship match on Monday at Germano Krüger Stadium.
Check out the Operário vs Ponte Preta prediction for the 23rd round of the Brazilian Serie B Championship which takes place on Monday 16/09.
It is a match between two teams that intend to reach the G-4 and get a place for Serie A Brasileirão. Ponte Preta tries to regain its prestige after an excellent start to the championship. On the other hand, Operário is the big surprise of the competition, fighting to get its position at the top of the table.
The Operário team is currently in the 7th position of the Brazilian Serie B Championship. The team has moved up this year to Serie B and is already competing for a place among those who will play Serie A. In all, they have 32 points in the championship after 22 games.
The home team is in the best form, so they are unbeaten at home in 8 games. Anyway, they lost only one match as the home team, won 8 and tied two. Numbers that really impress.
Also, the team made their last away match against the West and lost by 3 × 0. The team had good chances and almost scored, but conceded the first goal and after that, the opposing team closed and started to play in the counterattacks. Thus, the Operário team tried to attack to seek victory and ended up taking two more goals.
Ponte Preta team holds 10th place in the championship, scoring 31 points in 22 games. The team’s attack has already scored 22 goals, an average of 1 per game. On the other hand, their defence conceded 19 goals. So, in all there were 8 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses.
The shape of Ponte Preta, however, is not the best. The team got 9 games without losing at the beginning of the championship. However, the team’s performance has dropped, and in the last 13 games, there have been only 3 wins and 4 draws.
In their last match, they played at home against the weak Vila Nova team and won by 1 × 0 with a penalty in the second half. The team played well at the beginning of the match, also, created good plays by the wings, but failed to score. Vila Nova overbalanced the game in the second half and ended up suffering the penalty that gave the goal.
Both teams come from losing in the league, so they need to recover the points lost to stay in contention for promotion. The Operário seems to be having a more regular tournament than Ponte Preta, which has been noticeably in a lousy situation for some time.
The Operário team, however, has the best campaign as hosts and may be able to maintain their performance against Ponte Preta. The group shows good football and has evolved a lot during the competition.
The free guess of this prediction Operário vs Ponte Preta bets on Operário superiority at home, so, likely, the visitor is still unable to re-establish themselves in the league.
