Athletico Paranaense to Win
We were honestly surprised to see the odds on Athletico Paranaense since they’ve been in pretty good form lately with four wins in the last five matches. Of course, two of those wins were in Copa Sudamericana semi-finals and it’s clear that Athletico got a huge confidence boost after reaching the final. Meanwhile, Bahia is currently only ahead of Chapecoense in the standings and one of the main candidates for relegation. So, our prediction is for Athletico Paranaense to win this game.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
While we’ve only see two of the last five h2h duels between Athletico Paranaense and Bahia go over 2.5 total goals, we expect to see a high-scoring game in their upcoming match. The reason lies in the fact that both teams have been very efficient this season – Athletico Paranaense averaged 2.61 goals per game, Bahia 2.78 goals per game.
Home Team Over 1.5 Total Goals
Once again, our prediction isn’t supported by the recent head-to-head history since Athletico Paranaense scored two goals in only one of the last five duels against Bahia. However, they’ve been in great form and they’ve scored at least two goals in four of their last five matches in all competition. Also, Athletico scores 1.64 goals per game at home, while Bahia concedes 1.75 goals per game in away matches.

Athletico Paranaense vs Bahia preview: Can Bahia get anything out of this game?
While the home team is fighting for the top-half finish, the guests are trying to avoid relegation. Still, this should be an interesting match, so let’s check the teams out in more detail:
After reaching the Copa Sudamericana final, Athletico Paranaense fans are certainly ecstatic and don’t really care that their team seems to be on the path to a mid-table finish in the league. Athletico is currently in the eighth place, but there are many games left to play and if the team goes on a good run, they could end up higher at the end of the season. Matheus, Abner and Halter are injured at this time and out of the upcoming match.
The team that played continental football this season is not doing well coming into the final third of the Brazilian league since Bahia is in the relegation zone at the moment. While they are not too many points far from safety, the team will have to do much better in the rest of the season. Bahia has one win, two draws, and two losses in the last five matches. However, the team also has a lot of injured players at the moment, while de Oliveira will miss the game after being sent off in the last one.
