Santos take on the visitors Ponte Preta at “Estadio Vila Belmiro” in the matchday eight of the Brazilian Serie A. The game will be played in Sao Paulo on Sunday, June 18th.
Santos won all three recent clashes in the Serie A with 4:0 aggregated score. That series allowed “Peixes” to occupy the fifth place in the standings with 12 points gained, seven goals for and six goals against. At their own turf “Santastico” picked up nine points in four encounters of the elite division having got three victories and single defeat with the same 1:0 scoreline.

Ponte Preta alternate triumphs with losses in the season’s Serie A. With seven rounds behind, Gilson Kleina’s side sits occupy the ninth position in the table with 10 points earned and 10-11 goal difference. On the road Ponte Preta took only one single point in four matches in the Serie A, having scored two goals for and nine goals against. “Macacas” no-win streak at away fields has reached eight games and has been lasting since the 27th of March. The team gained four draws and four losses on the road during that period.
Santos won four out of five their recent head-to-heads against Ponte Preta. Taking into consideration this statistics as well as the hosting side’s strong play in last clashes of the season and Ponte Preta’s failing series on the road, I believe “Peixes” will take another three points and will follow up their raising in the standings of the Brazilian elite division.
Prediction for the match: Santos to win.
