Bahia Prediction – Can Bahia bounce back at home?

Wednesday night’s hosts, Bahia, were handed a 2-1 defeat at home last time out in the Brazilian top flight by Athletic PR, but they have a chance to redeem themselves here against visiting Sao Paulo with a precious three points up for grabs for both sides.

Recent results have produced a mixed return for Bahia who have also lost away at Corinthians but they’ve also recorded wins against Botafogo and Avai, both by 2-0 margins, and the hosts have also made themselves hard to beat on home turf at their Arena Fonte Nova.

An overall home record of 7-3-2 17/9 includes just 2 defeats from their 12 home matches to date with losses to 3rd placed Santos and the aforementioned defeat to Athletico PR, but notable wins against 4th placed Corinthians 3-2 and Serie A leaders Flamengo 3-0 shows that Bahia are more than capable of securing results at home against the better teams in the division.

In addition, Bahia are unbeaten in their last 3 meetings at home against Sao Paulo and they also possess dangerous striker, Gilberto (11 goals) up front.

Sao Paulo Prediction – Can Sao Paulo break into top four?

The visitors registered a 2-1 home win over 14th placed Fortaleza last time out in the Brazilian top flight over the weekend which would have been a welcome three points for Fernando Diniz’s side as they’d previously suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Goias and drew 0-0 draw at Flamengo.

Overall results of late have been fairly solid for Sao Paulo as they’ve lost just once in their last 5 matches, a run that includes wins over Botafogo and the aforementioned Fortaleza along with draws against CSA and Flamengo, but although they’ve been solid on home turf at their Murumbi ground, there’s a hint of vulnerability on the road.

Sao Paulo have lost just 1 of their 12 home matches to date in Serie A, but an away record of 5-3-3 9/8, whilst still reasonable, has produced mixed returns on their travels so far this term.

The visitors have recently suffered back-to-back defeats at Vasco da Gama and Internacional, as well as failing to score in 5 of these 12 away matches too, so this may perhaps give Bahia more than just a fighting chance of getting something out of this clash.


Key-Facts – Bahia v Sao Paulo

  • Bahia have lost just 2 of their last 12 home matches in Serie A
  • Sao Paulo have failed to score in 5 of their 12 away matches in Serie A
  • Bahia are unbeaten in their last 3 meetings at home against Sao Paulo


Betting Tips Verdict

Bahia have been hard to beat at home and indeed have claimed a couple of worthy scalps along the way too. Back the hosts with the handicap here.
