Ponte Preta vs Coritiba Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 13th November 2018
Ponte Preta vs Coritiba – Brazilian Serie B :This Tuesday, Ponte Preta hosts Coritiba at the Moisés Lucarelli Stadium
On the penultimate round of the 2018’s Brazilian Serie B. The home side comes into this final stretch of the competition with good chances of getting promoted. As for the visitors Coritiba, they are only playing for pride.
With only 2 matches left, Ponte Preta is still dreaming about the return to the Serie A, something that seemed unlikely throughout the entire Serie B, because they were a team that oscillated a lot and always sat on a mid-table position.
Thanks to a streak of 7 unbeaten matches where they’ve gotten 6 victories, the team is currently in 5th place of the Serie B with 56 points conquered, and they’ve scored 40 goals and conceded 30 goals already, being 1 point away from the top 4.
Coritiba started this Serie B as one of the top promotion contenders due to their history and due to the strength of their own fans.
They come into the end of this league without any possibility of achieving promotion, since they are 8 points away from the top 4 and there are only 6 points up for grabs.
In terms of standings, Coritiba sits in 10th place with 49 points conquered, with a record of 39 goals scored and 42 goals conceded.
From what they’ve shown on this Serie B, I see Ponte Preta being a slightly more qualified team and visibly more organized than Coritiba,
and if we add that to the fact that they play away from home and each teams’ motivations,
with Ponte Preta wanting to win to continue on the fight for promotion and Coritiba only playing for pride and thinking about 2019 already, the favouritism of the home side becomes clear.
Ponte Preta vs Coritiba – Betting Tip and Prediction:
However, the odds offered by the bookmakers for Ponte Preta to win aren’t attractive, so I opted for the Over 1.5 Goals of the home side.
I believe that the match won’t be close, and if Coritiba offer some resistance, I believe they will be trying to win the match and not playing with a defensive approach, so I think that Ponte Preta will have more space and consequentially higher chances of scoring.
