Sport Recife and Bahia to Draw at Half Time

While Sport Recife is currently in worse situation than their next opponent and colleagues from the relegation zone, they still have a theoretical chance to do so, if they can go on a great run until the end of the season. So, with both teams in desperate need of points, we find it hard to predict the outcome. However, that also means that the teams will likely be very careful and reserved, especially in the first half. So, our prediction is for the teams to be tied at half time, which already happened in three of the last five meetings between these two teams.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the previous five head-to-head duels between Sport Recife and Bahia have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we expect to see the same in this match, especially with stakes being so high and with both teams likely to be very cautious. Also, Sport Recife averaged 1.61 goals per game this season, which is the worst average in the league. Meanwhile, Bahia averaged 2.42 goals per game so far in Serie A.

Both Teams to Score – No

Both teams have only scored in one of the last five h2h duels between Sport Recife and Bahia, so we don’t see both teams scoring in this match either. Furthermore, both teams have only scored in 27% of all Sport Recife matches in Serie A until now, as well as just 35% of all Bahia matches in the league this season.

Sport Recife vs Bahia preview: The derby of the relegation zone

Sport Recife

The team that barely survived last season is once again in a difficult situation, but it seems that Sport Recife won’t be able to stay in the top-flight once again since they are six points away from the first team outside of the relegation zone at the moment and they only have five matches left to play. Sport Recife also lost five of their last six games in the league and they have five players on their injury list at this time.


With two wins, three draws, and one loss in the last six games in Serie A, Bahia managed to stay in the fight against relegation. At the moment, they have 36 points, which is the same as Juventude, the first team outside of the relegation zone. So, Bahia will have to fight for their place in Serie A next season until the very end. Jonas, Bahia, and Marcelo are injured right now and they will miss the next game.
