Date: Thursday, 28 January 2021

Bahia has lost three of their last five matches in the campaign. The host is caught in the relegation zone and needs at least four points to jump out of it, as it stands. They will host the game after suffering a 2-0 loss on the road against Sport Recife last time out in their league schedule.
Corinthians have a 13-point lead over the home team on the table this term. They have won three and lost only two of their recent five fixtures in the campaign. They will visit on the back of a 0-2 loss at home against the likes of Bragantino in the previous encounter in the campaign.

Bahia vs Corinthians Prediction
With their recent four h2h meetings in the league seeing both teams scoring in each, the chances for yet another game to have a similar result are high. Besides, both teams have averaged at least over a goal per match in the campaign this season until now. Thus, the tip for BTTS will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
Bahia has lost four of their last five home matches in their overall schedule. The host had only one win in the last five fixtures in the league, which shows the incapability of using the ground advantage. In the meantime, Corinthians have the lead over the host, giving them a slight edge prior to the encounter.
The away team has lost only one of their last seven Serie A outings in their schedule. Hence, the double chance favoring Corinthians will probably be a suitable option for the punters in the encounter to yield decent returns.
