Ponte Preta also advanced for the round of 16 in Copa do Brasil, thrashing Figueirense at home 5-0. The last five matches of Serie A gained Ponte Preta 10 points. The visiting side has gained 24 points in 16 matches with 20-25 goal difference and sit on eight place in the league. Eight away matches this season gained the team only eight points with negative 7-12 goal difference.
Fluminense is more successful in head-to-heads with Ponte Preta. However, the last match of the opponents ended with 3-1 win of today’s visitors. On the other hand, Fluminense haven’t lost a single match to Ponte Preta at own turf (five wins and three draws). Fluminense show solid results at Maracana this season and they should defeat such convenient opponents.
Prediction for the match: Fluminense to win.
