Bahia vs Red Bull Bragantino
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 16 August 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Arena Fonte Nova (Salvador).
Bahia has been unbeaten in their last three matches, following a 1-0 win at home against Coritiba in their opening match in the campaign this season.
The Tricolor has lost only one of their last ten home matches in the schedule across all major competitions. On the other hand, the host has lost only two of their last eight clashes in their schedule.
In their h2h meetings, the host has won in three of the recent three fixtures against the Massa Bruta. Significantly, both those wins came with the same 3-2 scoreline at home.
Red Bull Bragantino has drawn both their games in the league. They are not at their best start for a promoted side, but the problems will only increase with their visit to Salvador.
They will visit after a 1-1 draw at home against Botafogo RJ in the league.

Bahia vs Red Bull Bragantino Prediction
Bahia has a strong record at home and their home ground advantage will be useful for their match after having a clean sheet win in the last home match. Consecutive home matches will aid Roger Machado to make his team more flexible at home.
Besides, Bragantino is a promoted side and has also lost in their last two h2h meetings with the host during their visits in 2016 and 2015. Their lack of top-tier experience after a gap of four years will also be futile for the visitors.
The double chance favoring Bahia will probably be the best bet for the punters. Along with that, the tip for over 1.5 goals will also serve as a suitable option for the ninety minutes.
