Bahia Prediction – Can Bahia hold onto top 12 spot?

Thursday night’s hosts, Bahia, ended a miserable run of 9 matches without a win in the Brazilian top flight last time out when they recorded a 2-1 win away from home at CSA which has helped maintain Bahia’s spot in the top 12 of Serie A.

This therefore means the hosts remain on course to grab a place in the Copa Sudamericana but although they’ve also earned a point in a recent 1-1 draw at home with Atletico Mineiro, Bahia know they must continue their mini revival in this evening’s clash against Vasco da Gama.

With an overall home record of 7-7-4 23/17 under their belts at their Arena Fonte Nova, Bahia know that their best chances of a top 12 finish in the Brazilian top flight hinge upon results at home, but they’ve managed to collect just 1 win out of their last 9 matches.

That win came in the shape of a 2-0 win against Botafogo, but 3 defeats to Athletico PR, Ceara and Internacional have set them back. 5 draws within these last 9 matches at least give the hosts a fighting chance of at least a point here, if not all three.

Vasco da Gama Prediction – Can Vasco da Gama break into top 12?

The visitors claimed a rare victory themselves last time out in Serie A when they registered a 1-0 home win against Cruzeiro, but wins haven’t exactly been coming thick and fast for Vasco da Gama as they’ve won just 2 of their last 9 matches in the domestic top flight.

An earlier win against CSA 3-0 away from home and points earned in draws with Flamengo 4-4 and a 1-1 draw with Goias has helped the visitors stay in touch with the top 12 pack, along with a steady set of results away from home contributing too.

Vasco da Gama’s overall away record stands at an ordinary looking 5-6-7 18/22 but this includes just 1 defeat out of their last 8 matches on their travels in Serie A which was a 1-0 loss at 6th placed Sao Paulo.

With just 5 away wins out of their last 21 away matches in Serie A though, Vasco da Gama are by no means guaranteed the points here and recent history at Bahia suggests this could be a much tougher clash than first anticipated.


Key-Facts – Bahia vs Vasco da Gama

  • Bahia have won just 1 of their last 9 matches at home in Serie A
  • Vasco da Gama have won just 5 of their last 21 away matches in Serie A
  • Bahia have won the last 4 meetings on the trot at home v Vasco da Gama


Betting Tips Verdict

Bahia hold a pretty good record at home in recent times against Vasco da Gama and the handicap on the hosts in this one looks the best play.
