The two teams are at the bottom of the table, it’s true. But to be fair, they are in completely opposite moments of form.
Coritiba is rising at the more critical stage of the season and they are already dreaming with salvation. On the other hand, Ponte Preta is in terrible form.
Not even the change of manager and the arrival/return of Eduardo Baptista has had an impact on the team’s performance.
Coritiba vs Ponte Preta – Betting Tip and Prediction:
In addition to that, Ponte Preta is a team with very poor performances away from home.
So we have Coritiba living a good moment of form and playing at home against a Ponte Preta side who is in free fall.
All these factors make me believe on a win for Coritiba here.
