Cruzeiro welcomes Ponte Preta in a match of the 28th round of the Serie A.
Cruzeiro: The home team is holding the 5th position after 11 wins, 8 draws and 7 losses. They managed to win 41 points so far. Cruzeiro extended their unbeaten run to six matches in the league after drawing at home with Corinthians last time out. However, they were fortunate to get a point though after a very below-par performance by their standards. Also, this is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage.
Ponte Preta: The away team is in the 15th position in the league with 31 points won. They have registered 8 wins, 7 draws and 11 losses so far. Ponte Preta ended a four-match winless run by beating Flamengo in their last match. Yet, it was a close game in which they were fortunate to get the three points.
Conclusion: Cruzeiro’s favouritism is more than obvious for this match. On the other side, Ponte Preta continues to create few chances in matches though, having difficulties with scoring. However, the tradition is not on their side this time and home team should keep a clean sheet at least.
