Internacional vs Ponte Preta Predictions

This is a massive game for the hosts. They find themselves just inside the drop-zone with only 4 games to go and given they haven’t won any of their last 18 away games, it’s essential they deliver the goods here and in their only other remaining home fixture. Ponte Preta are in mid-table and are trying to secure a place in the Copa Americana next term but the focus will be on Inter and a tight nervy game seems likely.

Goalscoring has been a problem for Internacional all season. They average just 0.94 goals scored per game in the league this year and that is the main reason they are in the bottom four. Only two sides have worse goalscoring records than them but they are quite strong at the back. As a result a large portion of their games have been low scoring affairs. There have been under 2.5 goals in 68% of their league games and 71% of their home matches. Their home form has picked up a bit of late, with 4 wins from their last 6 home league matches but they were all slender 1 goal wins so it’s hard to see them running away with this.

Ponte Preta are poor travellers though, averaging just 0.59 points per game on the road. 65% of their away games have ended in defeat and they’ve only scored 0.76 goals per game on their travels. Their last 4 away games have all ended in defeats to nil so they don’t exactly travel here with much confidence and their only wins on the road this term have come at the bottom two clubs, who have both been cut well adrift.

As a result Inter certainly look the more likely victors and will back themselves to keep a clean sheet given Ponte Preta’s struggles finding the net on the road. With just 1 defeat in 8 home Serie A matches, Inter have got some momentum going at last at the Estádio José Pinheiro Borda. They should have enough about them to find a breakthrough at some point in this game but given their inability to find the net on a regular basis, backing Internacional to Win 1-0 at 9/2 looks to offer value.
