Guess Guarani vs Ponte Preta: our selection of the best bets
Tip 1: Guarani wins
The Bugrina crowd promises to have a big party this Saturday. Tickets for the Derbi Campineiro went on sale this Wednesday and the expectation is that more than 16,000 will be present at Taba do Guarani to push the team, which may return to the G4, depending on what happens in the round.
Therefore, the first good betting possibility for the Guarani x Ponte Preta prediction is the investment in the victory of the Bugre, even for the current moment of the two teams, which is more favorable in relation to the Alviverde team.
In 7th place in Serie B, Guarani has 41 points, and is three points behind the G4, while Ponte Preta appears in 14th place, with 31 points. In the last round, Bugre drew 1-1 away from home against Sampaio Corrêa, and Macaca beat Londrina by 1-0.
Tip 2: tie
There is a theory in Campinas that says the following: “Derbi is Derbi and vice versa”. Therefore, it doesn’t matter much who is fine and who is not, the derby between Guarani and Ponte Preta is always a war, with intense dispute for the ball, and mutual will to get the result.
Proof of this was the classic of the 1st round. In a match held at the Moisés Lucarelli Stadium, both sides wanted to, and the game ended in a 1-1 tie, with a goal scored by Jeh on the Ponte side, and Bruno Mendes on the Guarani side, in the last move of the game. Therefore, another possibility of betting for this confrontation is the investment in the draw.
Prediction 3: Both teams score (yes)
Guarani needs a victory to try to reach the G4 of the Brasileirão, while Ponte Preta wants to add another consecutive victory in Série B, and thus distance itself even further from the relegation zone of the competition.
Therefore, we believe that another betting possibility for this match is the scoreboard in which both teams score at least one goal. The need for the result should transform the confrontation at Brinco de Ouro into an open game, and full of chances for both sides in Campinas.
Guarani vs Ponte Preta: the current form of the teams
After the 1-1 draw against Sampaio Corrêa, Guarani focused last week on preparing for the classic, and should have maximum strength to face Ponte Preta at Estádio Brinco de Ouro da Princesa.
Midfielder Matheus Bueno, who was injured, recovered and should form the midfield duo alongside Matheus Barbosa. In addition to him, coach Umberto Louzer will have the return of Diogo Mateus, and also of Alan Santos, players who served their suspension in the last round.
Therefore, the team must maintain the basis of the last round, with Bruninho remaining as the team’s central point guard, and Bruno José, João Victor and Bruno Mendes, or Derek, forming the attack duo of Bugre.

Probable lineup of Guarani: Pegorari; Diogo Mateus; Alan Santos, Lucão and Mayk; Matheus Barbosa, Matheus Bueno and Bruninho; Bruno José, João Victor and Derek (Bruno Mendes). Technician: Umberto Louzer.
If, on the one hand, Guarani will have important returns for the Derbi dispute, on the Ponte-Pretano side, the fans’ expectations are high due to the possibility of seeing the complete starting lineup for this Saturday’s game. Suspended in the last round against Londrina, goalkeeper Caíque França, defensive midfielder Léo Naldi, and left-back Arthur return to the starting lineup.
Gabriel Silva was injured in the last game, and is doubtful for this Saturday. Therefore, Arthur must take the position at left-back. Filipinho will give way to Léo Naldi and Caíque França resumes his post at the Macaca finish line in place of the young Pedrão.
Up front, Paulo Baya, Eliel and André can form Macaca’s offensive trio. Another possibility is the entry of Mailton on the right wing in place of Eliel, and thus, the team would change the tactical formation to a 4-4-2.
