Flamengo vs Ponte Preta Soccer Prediction Today
The rubro-negro reached his best moment of the season when defeating the Internacional, by 2 to 0, on Sunday, May 6, also in Maracanã. In this way, he secured the leadership of the Brazilian Championship, after four rounds, for his consecutive days. Something that has not happened since 2009, the year the team won their last tournament title.
The success also extended to seven the club’s unbeaten run (four wins and three draws), involving all competitions. Even the opponents gave a ‘little hand’ to the good phase of Flamengo. With River Plate’s 1-0 win in Colombia, the club will only need to defeat Emelec on May 16 to secure passage to the Round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores of America with a round of anticipation.
The sum of all these events completely transformed the mood in the club, which was tumultuous after protests from fans that included aggression to players. The board, which has reduced the price of tickets, sees the intense demand of the fans and awaits more than 50 thousand people for the duel of this Thursday.
In that situation, interim coach Mauricio Barbieri will remain in charge. For many, he was helped by luck with the injury of midfielder Diego, who had been the athlete most criticized by the fans. Without the athlete, the red-black improved performance and achieved superior results.
The coach must maintain in this way the same team that defeated Internacional. The only question is in the attack. Free from suspension by doping, the Peruvian Paolo Guerrero can win the position of Henrique Dourado.
The Macaca did not give much importance to the first game against Flamengo. He spared some of his top athletes for Saturday’s classic, May 5, against Guarani, for Serie B of the Brazilian Championship. He left the Estadio Brinco de la Princesa Stadium with a 3-2 victory.
It was enough to cheer his fans that he was shaken with four defeats in five games. He improved the situation of the club in the fight to return to the First Division. Now with six points (two wins and two losses), the Bridge occupies the eighth place in the Series B. It is three points away from the CSA, which in fourth place closes the zone of classification for Series A.
Now, with this battle gone, coach Doriva must put the best team on hand in the return match. That does not mean, however, complete team. Léo, Reginaldo, Danilo Barcelos and André Luís, who already played in the tournament for other clubs, could not be registered by Macaca.
