Bahia hosts Palmeiras in round 26 of Brazilian Serie A. The match will be played on Wednesday, October 13th at Arena Fonte Nova (Salvador)
Bahia has gradually lost ground in recent years. If in 2019 the Tricolors were able to finish in 11th place, then the last draw of Brasileirao brought only 14th line. Now they are fighting for the right to stay in the elite. On the weekend, Bahia managed to beat Athletico Paranaense with a 0-2 score (let’s note Gilberto Oliveira — the experienced striker scored the 10th goal in the current season). On the one hand, this result interrupted a streak of four matches without victories. On the other hand, when your competitors are Santos and Gremio, you need to win more often so as not to end up in the relegation zone.

Palmeiras is the current holder of Copa Libertadores. And, of course, Abel Ferreira still has a credit of trust. Moreover, it can even grow. Yes, we have to admit that this season, by and large, turns into a disappointment. The White-Greens showed perfect results until the end of July, and it seemed that they could regain the champion’s title. But that positive streak was followed by a sharp decline, and the team gained only two victories in the last eleven rounds. In the last four games at the Serie A level, the White-Greens managed to earn only one point due to a home draw against Juventude (1-1). But all this is offset by successes in Copa Libertadores, which took all the strength and maximum attention. Thanks to the away goal advantage (1-1 away after a goalless draw at home), Palmeiras eliminated Atlético Mineiro and made it to the final.
Bahia gained its last victory over Palmeiras back in 2012. Since then, 14 head-to-head matches have already been played, and Palmeiras won half of them (including the last two). Seven other games ended in draws. Bahia has a higher motivation to win now, but Palmeiras is stronger in terms of the roster. In any case, we recommend betting on high production.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 goals scored
