Internacional – Can Internacional make it five at home?

It’s been a mixed season so far for Wednesday night’s hosts, Internacional as the hosts have made a blistering start to their Serie A campaign at their Estádio José Pinheiro Borda having won their first four home matches of the season with an impressive home record of 4-0-0 9/2 under their belts to date.

The hosts come into this clash having lost 2-1 away at Vasca da Gama though as their results away from home have really let them down so far in this campaign as Internacional have lost 3 of their first 4 away matches of the new term.

Nevertheless, it’s Internacional’s form at home that’s important to us for this clash and having registered wins against Flamengo, Cruzeiro, CSA and Avai so far this season, they look well set for further success here on Wednesday night when they play host to Bahia.

Indeed, form at home has been Internacional’s strong suit as the hosts have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 29 matches on home soil which is an impressive and staggering record in a top flight of any football.

Bahia Prediction – Can Bahia stop Internacional’s momentum?

Bahia sit one league position and 1 point above their Wednesday night’s hosts, Internacional, as they too have enjoyed a pretty successful start to their new Brazilian top flight campaign, coming into this encounter on the back of recent wins against Fluminense and Gremio along with points against Sao Paulo and Ceara in draws away from home.

However, much like their opponents, Internacional, much of Bahia’s early success this season has been achieved on home turf at their Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador where they’ve also posted a 100% winning record with 4 wins out of 4 this season to date.

Results away from home though have been fairly ordinary by comparison as the visitors possess a pretty poor record of 0-2-2 2/4 which includes defeats at Botafogo and Athletico PR, while the bigger picture indicates that Bahia have recorded just 2 wins out of their last 28 matches on the road in the Brazilian top flight.

It’s this poor record away from home that could be the key to determining the outcome of this clash as Bahia may struggle to keep up with Internacional here.


Key-Facts – Internacional v Bahia

  • Internacional have won their first 4 home matches on the trot in Serie A
  • Internacional have won 22 of their last 29 matches at home in Serie A
  • Bahia have recorded just 2 wins out of their last 28 matches on the road


Betting Tips Verdict
