Sport Recife: In dangerous area (Recent Form: LWLDLW)
Sport Recife occupy 16th place in the Brazilian Serie A with 37 points (10 wins, 7 draws, 15 losses; goal difference 41:50). They are currently just 1 position and 2 points above 17th Vitoria (relegation zone), so unfortunately Sport Recife are one of the relegation candidates. Moreover, team is in poor shape. They have 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses in last 5. Certainly they must improve, otherwise they are going to get relegated. Sport Recife take on Ponte Preta on Friday. Generally, their home record is decent. Sport Recife have collected 29 points in 16 home games to date (8 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats; goal difference 30:21).
Ponte Preta: In the middle of the standings (Recent Form: LWWLLL)
Ponte Preta sit on 10th position in the table with 45 points (13 wins, 6 draws, 13 losses; goal difference 42:47). They have now 10 points of advantage over the drop zone, whereas the distance to 6th Corinthians (promotion play-offs) is 4 points at the moment. So, with 6 games left in this campaign it might still go in either direction for Ponte Preta. Unfortunately, their recent form isn't great. They have 2 wins, 0 draws and 3 losses in last 5. Now it's time for away encounter. Ponte Preta usually underperform on the road, having collected 10 points in 16 away games (2 wins, 4 draws, 10 losses; goal difference 13:31).
In conclusion, I expect an interesting clash with a few goals. Although it's Ponte Preta who are higher in the standings, they usually disappoint on the road whereas Sport Recife perform often fine at home. In my opinion both sides are capable of getting on the scoresheet in this match.
