Bahia vs América MG – Brazilian Serie A: Trying to get rid of the bottom half of the league table
Bahia hosts América Mineiro that already managed to gain an interesting advantage over the teams at the bottom. This match will be played on Saturday night, at the Arena Fonte Nova, in Salvador.
Bahia occupies the 16th place of the league table with 18 points, 1 position above the first team inside the relegation zone.
They are coming off a weak where they’ve ensured their qualification onto the 8th finals of the Copa Libertadores away from home.
Now they need to win again in the Brazilian Serie A, and this match at home is essential for them to not to finish this round amongst the bottom 4.
The team has played in Uruguay this Wednesday, but I don’t believe they will rest any players here, since their situation is dangerous.
Zé Rafael’s return to the team puts them on a different level, and on the latest matches,
they’ve gotten some important results, facing teams with good potential, like Corinthians, Palmeiras, Fluminense, Atlético-MG and Vitória, on the local derby, and they didn’t lose a single one of these matches.
América is making a very secure campaign so far, looking to get good results at home, and, in some cases, try to snatch a couple of important points away from home.
The team is in 10th place with 21 points, and after the arrival of Adilson Batista, the team still hasn’t lost, getting a victory at home against Inter by 2-1, another away from home over Santos by 1-0 and a goalless draw against Palmeiras at home.
This is a team that doesn’t have the ability to pressure the opposition, especially playing away from home, basing their approach on a well-posted defence and playing off of the opposition’s mistakes.
Adilson has closed the doors to their practices and didn’t give any clues to the starting line-up he will utilize.
Bahia vs América MG – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is a balanced match, and in fact, I don’t think that the odds should be like this. But in any case, I think that Bahia will probably win.
The home advantage should be the difference. The team has only lost 1 match at home, while as visitors, América, besides the victory against Santos, had lost 90% of the points.
I think that Bahia is a level above América, despite acknowledging the good campaign that the visiting side has been making.
