Ponte Preta VS Moto Club MA

This Wednesday, Ponte Preta and Moto Club-MA face at estadio Moisés Lucarelli, in Campinas, in a 2nd leg match for the second round of the 2015 Brasil Cup. This is a faceoff between teams from different Series of the Brazilian Championship, with Ponte Preta in the A Series and Moto Club in the D Series. In the previous round, Ponte Preta eliminated Vilhena-RO and Moto Club overcame Boa Esporte. In the 1st leg match, Ponte Preta won 2-1.

Analysis of Ponte Preta

Ponte Preta have maintain good form after their recent promotion to the A Series, thanks to having maintained the basis of the previous team and are therefore likely to have another good season. In the Paulista Championship, the Macaca has had a good run and ended the first stage as the best interior team. However, they were eliminated in the quarter finals. They were unlucky to play in the same group as Corinthians, which meant they had to face this strong opponent in the knockout stage. They managed to play an even match but were eliminated after a 1-0 loss.

This last weekend, the team made their first game in the A Series in a difficult away match against Gremio. Ponte conceded two goals and were dominated by the opponent. However, a great goal by Renato Cajá motivated the team and they managed to get the equalizer near the end. Surprisingly, Gremio scored again and it seemed to be the end of it, but somehow Ponte took advantage of the last goal opportunity and got a draw. Ponte are now trying to qualify for the next stage of the cup, but are likely to spare a few of their most influential players, since the opponent seems to be accessible.

Confirmed Lineup: Marcelo Lomba, Malcoon, Tiago Alves, Jeferson, Rodrigo Lobão, Adrianinho, Vitor Xavier, Juninho, Leandrinho, Roni, Borges.
Coach: Felipe Moreira.

Analysis of Moto Club MA

Maranhão have not started 2015 the best way possible. They were precociously eliminated from two competitions. In the Nordeste Cup, they didn’t make it through the group stage. In the Maranhense Championship, after a good start, they ended up facing Sampaio Corrêa in the semi-final, a stronger team that naturally eliminated them.

In the first leg match of this 2nd round, Moto Club wasn’t able to play well, not taking advantage of the fact that Ponte spared most of the usual starting eleven players. They were actually close to elimination, after a 2 goal disadvantage, which would have eliminated the need for this 2nd leg match. But they managed to score and the game ended 1-2. The team now hopes to do better and pray for a miracle that will allow them to move on in the competition.

Confirmed Lineup: Raniere, Luis Fernando, Rodolfo Mol, Edson Pacujá, Sandro Falcao, Chico Bala, Kleo, Davyd, Ideilson, Rayllan, Naôh.
Coach: Ruy Scarpino.

Betting suggestion:

Ponte Preta have got a good advantage, they play in their stadium and are far superior to their opponents, therefore, they are clearly favourites to win.
