Bahia vs Blooming Preview and Predictions

Bahia vs Blooming
Copa Sudamericana
Date: Thursday, 24 May 2018
Kick-Off at 01:45 UK
Venue: Arena Fonte Nova (Salvador)

After bagging a 1-0 over the rivals at Estadio Ramon Aguilera Costas midway through April, Blooming travel to Bahia for the return match of their Copa Sudamericana clash in the hope they can build on the success and make their way to the next round over the Brazilian rivals.

However, they’ve seen four losses in four outings since then and this will be much more worrying for the visitors, as San Jose, Nacional Potosi, and Wilstermann all beat them. Bahia now hope to capitalize on such woes and overturn the advantage despite an unpredictable spell of form of their own recently.

Tricolor come into the match after a 3-0 loss at Palmeiras and sit in the relegation zone early in Serie A campaign, with just five points earned in six games. They have been a very tough side to beat at Arena Fonte Nova, though, and they’ll now hope to prove such a character once again – earning nine wins and three draws in 12 games here since early February.

Bahia vs Blooming Head-to-head

This will be only the second head-to-head clash for the sides ever.

Blooming have bagged a narrow 1-0 win in the first leg with a single goal from Leonardo Vaca.

Bahia have been a better side at this ground and now look for a historic first win over the Bolivian rivals.

Bahia vs Blooming Prediction

Blooming have largely struggled to bounce back since the first-leg win and we do believe this should prove costly. We will thus back Bahia to capitalize on the rivals’ recent woes and bag a comfortable win on the day, going for Asian Handicap -1.5 at 2.00 and hoping to see the Brazilians make their way to the next round.

We do believe we’re in for a more exciting clash on the day and seeing Blooming regularly score goals on the road too – we’ll now also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.00 in hope we’ll see an early goal and a very exciting match in Salvador.
