Independiente to Win

This is one of the more difficult matches to give a prediction to since both teams have been doing well this season in the Copa Sudamericana and their first duel ended in a draw. However, we feel that Independiente can take the win here, mostly since they are the home team and they are in true competitive form since they are also playing in the Argentinian league, while the Brazilian league hasn’t started yet.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The first match in Group B between Independiente and Bahia ended with four goals, so we expect to see some goals in this game as well. That being said, Bahia has rarely played high-scoring games in the Campeonato Baiano and they’ve gone over 2.5 total goals in just one more game in the Copa Sudamericana. But Independiente has gone over 2.5 total goals in three of their four matches in that competition, so this still seems like a good bet.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

As we already mentioned, the first duel between these teams has ended 2-2, so both teams have scored twice in that game. We expect to see a similar duel in the rematch, especially since the winner will secure progression to the next stage of the Copa Sudamericana. With that in mind, we expect an open game with plenty of goals.

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

The match between Independiente and Bahia will tell us which team will enter the last round of group stages of the Copa Sudamericana at the top of Group B. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams:

Independiente

The team from Buenos Aires is not in the best form in their domestic league since they’ve only won twice in the last eight games, along with two draws and four losses. However, this was enough to put them in 9th place in the standings, with just six points away from second place in the Argentinian league. Also, the team is doing well in the Copa Sudamericana since they are sharing the top spot with Bahia after the first four rounds.

Bahia

The Brazilian team is tied for first place in the group with their next rival, so they are very close to getting into the next stage – although they are not there yet. In addition to their good performances in the Copa Sudamericana, Bahia is also playing in the Campeonato Baiano as they await the start of the Brazilian Serie A. However, they have failed to reach the final of that competition after losing to Bahia de Feira 3-1 on aggregate after two legs.
