Palmeiras to Win
Although Palmeiras is on a pretty bad run at the moment, they are still the better team and if they fail to win here they might just be out of the title race for good. With that in mind, and taking into account the fact that Palmeiras won the last two meetings with Bahia, our prediction is for Palmeiras to win this game as well.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Three of the last five head-to-head duels between Bahia and Palmeiras have gone over 2.5 total goals and we don’t see any reason why their next game should be different. In addition to this, Palmeiras averaged 2.88 goals per game so far in the league, while Bahia averaged 2.75 goals per game in Serie A until now. So, these two teams shouldn’t have any problems combining for at least three goals.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams have scored in four of the previous five h2h duels between Bahia and Palmeiras, so we expect to see the same in their upcoming duel. On top of that, both teams have scored in 58% of all Palmeiras games, while the same is true for 42% of all Bahia matches in the league this season.

Bahia vs Palmeiras preview: Can Palmeiras get out of the slump?
Although the guests are way ahead of the home team, they are also in poor form so we could see a close game here. With that in mind, let’s check both teams out in more detail:
After they managed to get a surprising win at Atletico Paranaense in the last round, Bahia now has two wins, two draws, and two losses in the last six games in the league. While that was not enough to get them out of the relegation zone, their current form is going in the right direction for the final third of the league and the upcoming fight against relegation. Conti, Marcelo, Ramirez, and Rossi are out with injuries, while Fonseca and Rodallega are questionable.
The last few weeks have been really tough for Palmeiras in the league since they’ve been without a win in the last four matches, losing three of them. As things seem at the moment, this poor stretch probably took Palmeiras out of the title race since Atletico Mineiro currently has fourteen points more than Palmeiras. At least the fans can take solace in the fact that their team will get a chance to defend their Copa Libertadores title in the final against Flamengo. Palmeiras is without Mayke and Rocha who are injured at the moment, as well as Gomez, Piguerez, and Weverton who are on international duty.
