Ponte Preta vs Vila Nova for the Brazilian Serie B championship match on Friday at Moisés Lucarelli Stadium.
The prediction of Ponte Preta vs Vila Nova presents the clash between two teams that do not live a good phase.
The match takes place on Friday for the 22nd round of the Brazilian Serie B Championship at Ponte Preta stadium. As Vila Nova tries to exit the relegation zone, Ponte Preta seeks to approach the G-4.
The Ponte Preta team does not live a good phase as at the start of the championship, however, has gained some crucial points, but they were not enough to keep the team in the qualifying zone for the Brasileirão Serie A.
The team is in the eighth position with 31 points in 21 games. But in the last 11 games, there were only three wins; also, they were five losses and three draws.
In fact, the team needs an excellent series of games to fight back for access. Thus, it needs to correct some flaws in the midfield and in the defensive sector of the wings.
The Vila Nova team shows on the field why they are in the relegation zone of the Brazilian Serie B Championship.
In the last 14 matches, the team has won just two. Thus, it should be noted that the squad does not take advantage of the games as host to score points. In fact, in 10 home games, they have scored just three goals and added 8 points. However, away from home, the performance of the team is slightly better, having 13 points in 11 games.
In this sense, we have a team without the technical quality to establish itself in the championship and, for what it has been presenting, will hardly be able to reverse this scenario.
Two teams enter the pitch with different perspectives for the championship, while one still dreams of a place in Serie A of the Brazilian Championship and the other fight to breathe in the competition.
Vila Nova has severe limitations in defence, while the defence of Ponte Preta was consistent against Criciúma when they held the pressure on the team in the second half.
On the other hand, Vila Nova cannot handle itself and manage its results. Thus, the expectation is that we have a game of attack against defence, that is, with Vila Nova playing at the back.
Two characteristics are likely for this prediction, so the first would be the victory of Ponte Preta, the second is riskier, indicates by statistics that the game will be solved in the first half.
