Bahia vs Flamengo Prediction & Match Preview

Bahia vs Flamengo
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 18 July 2021
Kick-off at 22:15 UK/ 23:15 CET
Venue: Arena Fonte Nova.

Flamengo are the reigning champions of the competition, but they have had not started this new campaign well. Still, they are determined to make a comeback, and are a team to be worried of. Meanwhile, Bahia are going on a good spell as well – especially offensively.

Likely, expect goals to come from both sides of the pitch this weekend.

At present, Flamengo have two games in hand, and still are in the running to get into the top-most tier. They also have the confidence from their title-winning campaign the last season, and have performed well against this rival over the years.

In the meantime, despite inconsistency in posting results, Bahia have done offensively well this season – and especially so at this stadium.

Moreover, majority of h2h clashes over the years have had goals in huge numbers as well.

As such, expect a goal-fest this weekend at the Arena Fonte Nova.
