Bahia take on the visitors Athletico Paranaense in the round of 16 match of Copa do Brasil. The match will be played on Thursday, June 23rd at Arena Fonte Nova (Salvador).
Bahia are now involved in fighting for a return to Brasileirao. "Tricolor" periodically arrange diametrical emotions for their fans. Someone else remembers of the national championship in 1988. But 2006-2007 had to hang out in the 3rd division. Gradually, the returned and, it would seem, from the 2nd attempt they managed gain a foothold in the "elite" - they spent 5 seasons in a row there, showing mostly not brilliant, but decent results. But in 2021 there was a failure, with a fall to 18th place, and a relegation. Now, of course, the main goal is to return to Serie A. In general, the results are not bad, it turns out to confidently stay in the top quartet. But is it worth spending energy on the cup?

Atlético Paranaense is considered one of the flagships of modern Brazilian football. The Red-Blacks, however, are more successful in the international arena. In 2018 and 2021, it was possible to win Copa Sudamericana. But at the same time, in the final standings of last year's championship, "Hurricane" finished only 14th. This season in the Cope Libertadores, the Brazilians took 10 points and qualify for the playoffs. But at the same time, Atlético Paranaense manage to stay at the top of the standings and, since May, have even given out an unbeaten streak. Curitiba was beaten in the last round. The only goal was scored already in the 10th minute added to the match, when Helven converted a penalty.
Bahia, although relegated at the end of last season, but managed to get a 100% result in head-to-head matches. They now have 3 wins in a row with Atlético Paranaense. Atlético Paranaense is simply stronger and should be successful even away from home. We recommend betting on the fact that guests will be able to win in this meeting, with a 0 handicap.
Prediction for the match: Athletico Paranaense to win with 0.0 handicap.
