CSA will welcome Ponte Preta to Estádio Rei Pelé for a matchday 17 fixture in Brazil Serie B. The last meeting on 30th September 2021 ended in a CSA 2-1 win. Both sides have met six times in the most recent seasons. CSA has won 2 matches, and Ponte Preta triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.83 goals, while both teams score 100% of the time.
CSA’s latest fixture against Londrina ended in an away 0-0 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair.
Ponte Preta’s recent game against Tombense ended in a home 0-0 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn’t enough to win three points.
Since the start of the season, Papão do Estado is more dominant at home. They have two wins out of 7 games on home soil. Although CSA is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 29% home clean sheets.
Ponte Preta has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Pioneira wins 0.63 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Ponte Preta kept a clean sheet in just 13% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is CSA or Draw.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 1.86 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 26% of CSA’s home and Ponte Preta’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 61% of CSA’s home and Ponte Preta’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
