Cuiaba and Bahia to Draw

The two teams enter this game in completely different forms since Cuiaba only lost one of their last six Serie A games, while Bahia lost four matches in a row. So, the home team is the favourite for a reason. However, our prediction for this match is to end in a draw because Bahia is the better team of the two and they will fight hard to get out of their current slump.

Cuiaba and Bahia to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect this game to end in a draw, we also think that it could be even at half time, like many games go. In addition to this, Bahia drew at half time in eight of their last ten matches in Serie A, so this is something they are used to. That being said, Cuiaba still has to draw at half time at home after six matches played, so we think this is the perfect opportunity for that to happen.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

While we don’t have any recent head-to-head history between these teams to give us a hint on what we can expect, both teams to score in this game sounds like a reasonable bet to us. This is something that happened in 54% of all Cuiaba matches in the league this season, but the same is true for only 36% of all Bahia matches. However, both teams average more than two goals per game, so we expect to see some goals here.

Cuiaba vs Bahia preview: Can Bahia break the losing streak?

While the guests are ahead in the standings, the home team is in a better form at the moment. So, let’s check both teams out in more detail ahead of their upcoming duel:

Cuiaba

After a rough start to the season in Serie A, the newly-promoted team has done better recently and managed to get out of the relegation zone. At the moment, Cuiaba is sitting in the 16th spot with one point more than the first team in the relegation zone. In the last six matches in Serie A, Cuiaba has two wins, three draws, and just one loss, so they are in good form right now. Also, their only injured player at this time is Rangel.

Bahia

It’s been a rough few weeks for Bahia since the team has failed to win in the last four matches in Serie A. In addition to this, they have also been eliminated from Copa do Brasil by Atletico Mineiro, 3-2 on aggregate. Still, Bahia is far from having to worry about relegation since they are currently 12th in the league, but they need to get some good result soon to avoid falling down further. Ramirez and Ribeiro are injured and will miss the upcoming game.
