Return to this page a few days before the scheduled game when this expired prediction will be updated with our full preview and tips for the next match between these teams.
Ponte Preta will be visiting Estádio Manoel Barradas on Wednesday for the Serie B fixture with home team Vitoria.
Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Vitoria v Ponte Preta are shown on this page (plus the best game odds).
Vitoria will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 1-0 Serie B defeat in their last game at the hands of Grêmio Esportivo Brasil.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that Vitoria haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Leão da Barra have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 8 goals along the way. Nonetheless, we must now wait to see if such a trend shall be maintained here in this game.
Their past results show that Vitoria:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Ponte Preta in their last 6 matches.
- have not won against Ponte Preta in their previous 2 matches in the league.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 league matches.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Remo in Serie B action, Ponte Preta and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
João Brigatti's Ponte Preta have fired home a total of 5 times in the course of their previous six matches. The aggregate of goals that have been scored against them during the equivalent period equals 5.
Taking a look at their past results, Ponte Preta:
- have not emerged victorious against Vitoria in games played away from home for the previous 5 matches in the league. Not good at all.
- are undefeated in their last 3 league matches away from home.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 6 league games.
Head to head
Looking over past results between these clubs stretching back to 03/08/2017 reveals that these fixtures have not been happy ones for Ponte Preta. They have not been able to come away with any victories whatsoever while Vitoria have just been stronger than them, getting wins in 67% of those matches played.
In all, 21 goals were yielded between them during those clashes, with 13 for Leão da Barra and 8 being from Macaca. The average number of goals per game works out to 3.5.
