Bahia vs Fluminense
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 26th May 2019
Kick-off at 23.00 UK/ 00.00 CET
Venue: Arena Fonte Nova (Salvador).
After a two-game run on the road, which returned unsatisfactory results, Bahia is at home to set their league campaign back on track.
Their away tie against Sao Paulo ended goalless, and the moral win surely belonged to Bahia, considering the unbeaten and top-tier status of the latter.
At home, Bahia has been having a great time, going on a winning run for the last three months.
Fluminense won against Cruzeiro in their last match-day, but it needs to be mentioned that the game was in front of their home crowd.
The team has had it tough on the road in the last several match-days, and even against Gremio, a team at the extreme bottom, Fluminense conceded four goals.
