Ponte Preta are unbeaten in their last five matches, taking three wins and two draws. Such impressive run gained the team the same 23 points as the hosts of the match have. The team shares 4-7 places in Serie A with 17-20 aggregate goal difference. At the same time, the visiting side show mediocre results on the road, taking eight points in seven matches with 6-9 goal difference. However, the last two away games ended with 1-1 draw with Vitoria and 3-0 win over Santa Cruz.
the opponents alternate home wins since 2011 while Ponte Preta are unable to win at Santos for 11 season since 2005. We should expect the hosts to extend their impressive series of results in home matches against Ponte Preta and take sixth win in seventh match at own stadium this season.
Prediction for the match: Santos to win.
