Fortaleza vs Bahia – Free Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

These are our Fortaleza vs Bahia predictions and tips:

Fortaleza to Reign Supreme

Things have not gone too well for Bahia in recent weeks; although they defeated Santos on penalties in their mid-week Copa do Brasil fixture, Renato Paiva’s men did not win any of their last six matches over 90 minutes. In contrast, Fortaleza are coming off three consecutive wins, and did not concede in their last two matches; they also won their last three skirmishes with Bahia. Taking Bahia’s recent struggles into account, our first Fortaleza vs Bahia prediction is a win for the hosts.

Both Teams to Score

It’s important to point out that these teams are local rivals, so they’ve met on many occasions. Bearing that in mind, both teams found the back of the net in three of their last four encounters. In the same vein, these teams have conceded their fair share of goals in recent weeks. While Bahia conceded in six of their last seven matches, Fortaleza have seen their defense breached seven times in their last five games. On that note, we should expect goals at both ends.

A High-scoring Game

We’ve already mentioned that these teams have met a fair few times; interestingly, previous clashes network these teams have mostly been on the high-scoring side. As a matter of fact, eight of the last nine encounters between these teams featured at least three goals. In like manner, Fortaleza’s last 10 matches have seen almost three goals scored per game on average. For this reason, we are taking the over 2.5 goals option.

Fortaleza vs Bahia Match Preview, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Fortaleza

Fortaleza are coming off an impressive victory over Palmeiras in the Copa do Brasil; that was their third consecutive win across all competitions. Juan Pablo Vojvoda’s men will look to extend their winning streak to four matches today, and they’ll fancy their chances against Bahia.

Bahia

On the other hand, Bahia played out a 1-1 draw with Santos a few days ago, but emerged victorious on penalties. They had no wins in five prior games, with two draws and three losses. This will be a tricky fixture for Renato Paiva’s lads, as they take on an in-form Fortaleza side. It’ll be interesting to see how they’ll match-up against their hosts.

Fortaleza vs Bahia Lineups

Moises will be called on to deliver the goals for Fortaleza; he has theee goals in six appearances for the hosts this season. On the other hand, Bahia will hope they can rely on Thaciano, who has two goals and two assists in seven league matches.
