Bahia vs Santos – Free Betting Tips, Odds, & Predictions

Bahia could not build on the two-game lossless sequence after suffering a 2-0 loss against Internacional in the recent match. Santos come on the back of consecutive losses, as they were beaten 2-0 by RB Bragantino in the last match.

Bahia to win

Santos have not picked up a victory in four consecutive matches. Bahia have experienced even worse form, as they have been unable to pick up a victory in five consecutive matches. The home form shown by Bahia has not been exceptional with only two wins in the last four matches at the Arena Fonte Nova, but Santos have been struggling for results on the road. Even though it is almost a year since Sandro suffered a defeat in the Copa do Brasil, they are unlikely to stretch the run any further.

Total goals under 2.5

There have been less than 2.5 goals in a majority of the recent matches for both teams. Santos have featured over 2.5 goals in just one of the last five matches whereas Bahia have not witnessed more than 2.5 goals in any of the last three games. Since the tie is delicately poised on aggregate, the two teams can end up cancelling out each other.

Both teams to score – no

Santos have been struggling in front of goal. The last time Santos scored over 2.5 goals in any match was against Bahia but they have since been able to get only two goals in the last five matches. This fixture may not witness too many goals.

Bahia vs Santos Match Preview – Team News and Analysis

Bahia

Bahia are winless in the last five matches in all competitions, but they are still in a decent spot with regards to qualifying into the next round of the Copa do Brasil. After having failed to get past the round of 16 on two consecutive occasions, Bahia will be hoping for a respite. Manager Renato Paiva will be without Yago Felipe, Marcos Victor, Matheus Bahia, and Raul Gustavo because of various injury problems.

Santos

Santos remain hopeful about avoiding another last 16 exit from the Copa do Brasil. After a disappointing exit at the hands of Corinthians last season, Santos still remain in the tie after the first leg. Coach Odair Hellmann comes into the game without Yeferson Soteldo, Luan Dias, Alex, Sandry, Renyer, and Felipe Jonatan missing due to injuries.
