Bahia and Independiente to Draw

Since both teams have been playing well in the Copa Sudamericana, we expect to see a close match. Perhaps a slight advantage should go to Independiente since they are in competitive form with the Argentinian league in full swing, but we feel that this game could end in a draw, which is our prediction for this match.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Independiente has gone over 3.5 total goals in both of their previous two Copa Sudamericana matches, while Bahia has averaged 3.5 total goals in the first two games, although the first one ended 1-1. Still, both teams have shown that they like to play offensively, so we are expecting to see at least three goals here.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in three of the four matches that these two teams have played this season in the Copa Sudamericana. The only match that didn’t was the 5-0 Bahia win over Guabira. With that in mind, and the fact that this duel could determine which team will take the top spot after three rounds in Group B, leads us to think that we can see both teams scoring in this match.

Bahia vs Independiente preview: Who will take the top spot in Group B?

While Independiente is currently at the top of the Group B of the Copa Sudamericana after two rounds, Bahia can overtake them with a win. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams:

Bahia

The Brazilian league has yet to start, but Bahia is playing in Campeonato Baiano right now, where they’ve gone five games without a loss (two wins and three draws). And while this competition is not as serious as the Brazilian Serie A, it serves as a good way to get in competitive form for Brazilian teams. In addition to this, Bahia has also played two games in the Copa Sudamericana, drawing with Montevideo City and beating Guabira 5-0.

Independiente

The team from Avellaneda, Buenos Aires, has started the season in the Copa Sudamericana well, with wins in the first two rounds of Group B. So, a win against Bahia would basically secure them a spot in the next round. However, Independiente is not in the best form in the Argentinian Primera Division since they are currently 11th in the league and they’ve lost three of their last five league games.
