With the two teams in crisis of results, Ponte Preta and Guarani are doing this Tuesday, October 6th, a new version of the Derby of Campinas. The meeting will be at the Moisés Lucarelli stadium and is part of the fourteenth round of the 2020 edition of Serie B do Brasileirão. It is the second classic of the year among the teams. In the first, for the Campeonato Paulista, Bugre, on a neutral field, won. He scored 3 to 2. The match is scheduled to kick off at 9:30 pm (Brasília time).
The Second Division of the Brazilian Championship maintained for the 2020 season the regulation it has been using in recent years.
With 20 participating clubs, there will be a turn and return in the round trip system. At the end of the 38 rounds, the top four will have guaranteed access to the elite division of national football.
The last four will be relegated to Serie C.
Macaca have won just one of their last six games.
Two of those games were against América-MG, a rival of the Second Division of the Brasileirão, but they were valid for the Copa do Brasil. They ended up with the elimination of Ponte Preta from the tournament. The others made it to Serie B.
The drop in performance caused the team to leave the access zone for Serie A.
On Saturday, October 3, also at Moisés Lucarelli, the Bridge was defeated by Juventude, by 3 to 1.
It was, thus, parked at 21 points (six wins, three draws and four losses). In this way, it started to appear in the fifth position of the leaderboard. It is the first out of the elite squad. One point below Paraná, which closes the region that leads to the elite division of national football.
The drop in performance marked the end of coach João Brigatti’s stay at the club. The board quickly announced the replacement’s name. Marcelo Oliveira will assume the post. A sign that the transition was already underway.
However, he will not be in charge of the team at Derby.
The direction will be the assistant coach Fabinho Moreno, who already commanded the team in the game against Juventude.
As principal, Ponte Preta has a lower campaign. Figure in the eighth position of the ranking of home owners of the Second Division of the Brazilian Championship. Of the 21 points played in the column, one won 11 (three wins, two draws and two defeats) having scored ten goals and conceded ten goals.
Guarani made its change of command a little earlier.
He dismissed Thiago Carpini, who has already found a new job and now trains the West, at the beginning of the dispute for Series B of the Brazilian Championship after suffering five defeats in six matches.
With Ricardo Catalá, the results have even improved, however, without allowing a jump in the leaderboard.
On Saturday, October 3, in Belo Horizonte, Bugre was in the goalless draw with América-MG.
In the last six matches, it was the fourth that ended on equal terms. In the other two, a victory and a defeat. With 11 points (two wins, five draws and six losses), the team occupies the nineteenth – penultimate – position in the classification table of the Second Division of the Brasileirão.
The difference for Figueirense, sixteenth placed and first team outside the region of the sticking is two points.
The performance as a visitor is far superior. Guarani is eighth in the ranking of this criterion of Series B of the Brazilian Championship.
Of the 21 points he played in column two, he returned home with eight (two wins, two draws and three losses) having scored five goals and conceded seven. In the match against América-MG, Bugre lost Alanzinho, Rafael Costa and Bruno Sávio, injured. They will not be able to participate in the derby.
