Sport Recife Prediction – Can Sport Recife confirm promotion?

With just 2 matches remaining of the Brazilian second tier season remaining and a 6-point lead ahead of 5th placed America Mineiro, Sport Recife need just a point on Wednesday night when they entertain mid-table Ponte Preta at their Estádio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho to clinch promotion back up to Serie A.

I daresay Sport Recife will be going in search of all three points here though as their form has been steady and reliable, losing just 1 of their last 13 matches overall which was a 1-0 loss away from home at Guarani, while results at home have been impressive this season.

The hosts boast an overall home record of 10-7-1 26/12 which includes winning 5 of their last 6 matches with victories chalked up against Operario, Sao Bento, Cuiaba, Parana and Criciuma and scoring 10 goals whilst conceding just 2 in this winning streak.

In addition, Sport Recife possess a couple of dangerous attacking personnel in the shape of strikers Guilherme (15 goals) and Hernane (14 goals), with Hernane scoring the first goal in 10 of these 14.

Ponte Preta Prediction – Can Ponte Preta end season on high note?

12th placed Ponte Preta have seemingly little to play for as they prepare for their trip to face an in-form Sport Recife as the visitors are a massive 16 points adrift of the promotion pack and hold a comfortable 8-point cushion above the relegation zone.

Overall, it’s been a disappointing campaign for Ponte Preta who narrowly missed out on promotion from Serie B at the end of last season and they’ve failed to press on this term as they find themselves in the bottom half of the division with just 2 matches of this season remaining.

Recent results have taken a turn for the worse as well as Ponte Preta have now gone 9 league matches without a win, a sequence which consists of 3 defeats and 6 draws, while the story doesn’t get any better when looking at their away form of late.

A run of 10 matches without a win on their travels within a poor away record of 3-8-7 13/19 includes 4 defeats and 6 draws and the visitors have failed to score in each of their last 4 matches on the trot on their travels as well.


Key-Facts – Sport Recife vs Ponte Preta

  • Sport Recife have lost just 1 of their last 22 matches at home in Serie B
  • Sport Recife have won 5 of their last 6 matches at home in Serie B
  • Ponte Preta have gone 10 away matches without a win in Serie B


Betting Tips Verdict

In-form Sport Recife should therefore claim all three points and celebrate promotion here.
