Team News: Ponte Preta
There is just one fitness concern for the Ponte Preta manager João Brigatti to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group. Jean Carlos (Torn lateral knee ligament) is sidelined.
Team News: CRB
Owing to a completely healthy squad available to select from, the CRB boss Daniel Paulista has no fitness worries whatsoever before this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that CRB might have a difficult job to be putting a goal past this Ponte Preta side who we think will likely be able to grind out a win.
We’re therefore expecting a very even contest with a 1-0 victory for Ponte Preta at full-time.
A close call.
