Bahia vs Gremio
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 3rd June 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Arena Fonte Nova, Salvador, Bahia.
Even though we are still in the early stages of new season in Brazilian Serie A, it is already obvious that team Bahia will have troubles to avoid relegation once again. The most popular boys from Salvador have had a slow start, managing to collect only eight points from the opening eight rounds, while having negative goal difference of -5. The things could change slightly this weekend as they host Gremio. Draw would be a solid result for the home team, no doubt about that.
Visitors have been on fire lately, but it is worth adding Gremio have played a lot of matches. Will that leave a mark on their fitness in upcoming weeks? Copa Libertadores appearances have been brilliant, especially in the back as they conceded only one goal in the last 180 minutes of play. In terms of the domestic campaign, the team is sitting in the 9th place with 13 points, just three short from 2nd placed Sao Paulo for example

- Games between these two opponents are usually followed with low number of goals.

Bahia vs Gremio: Prediction
Bahia definitely belong to the bottom half of Brazilian Serie A. They had a couple of flashy performances lately though, managing to beat Blooming (Copa Sudamericana) and Vasco Da Gama at this stadium with total score of 7-0. I am going to back the draw here.
Also, all signs, stats and form are pointing at a direction of another low scoring affair. Under 2.5 FT is priced at solid 1.61 price.
