Ponte Preta welcomes Gremio in a match of the 33rd round of the Serie A.
Ponte Preta: The home takes the 18th position in the league. They have won 35 points after 9 wins, 8 draws and 15 losses. In the previous round, they lost (2-0) in an away match against Bahia. Ponte Preta is going through a bad moment in this final stretch of the Serie A. Also, they haven’t been able to get enough points to move away from the relegation zone since they have only one win in the last six rounds.
Gremio: The away team is currently holding the 3rd position with 54 points won. After 32 matches played, they have got 16 wins, 6 draws and 10 losses. They head into this match after a home win (3-1) against Flamengo. Also, they are a little more relieved as they registered a win after three winless matches in Serie A. However, Gremio will be seeking to follow up on their deserved win against Flamengo.
Conclusion: A meeting of two sides from opposite end of the table as the season reaches the crucial phase. With the season drawing to an end, Ponte Preta has been increasingly unfortunate with results over the course of the campaign. They will be seeking to improve on their defeat to Bahia. On the other side, Gremio will try to secure the promotion to Copa Libertadores. To sum up, Ponte Preta possesses a solid defensive team and they should limit their opponent to few chances.
