Bahia vs Gremio
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 10 September 2020
Kick-off at 23:15 UK/ 00:15 CET
Venue: Arena Fonte Nova.
The King of Cups used to be one of the top teams in the Serie A, but they have made a terribly slow start to their current campaign. As of now, they are placed 14th in the table, and have secured a total of just one win.
However, it still should be noted that majority of their games have ended in draws, and they have lost just one match in the process. Likely, they will be desperately trying to find their old form back in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Baea are one of the worst teams this season in the Serie A. They have remained winless all through this 2020 Serie A, except for their fixtures against the newly-promoted and most inexperienced clubs.
Considering the overall domination of Renato Portaluppi’s men in recent h2h clashes as well, count on a good performance by Gremio this Thursday.
Bahia vs Gremio: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Ten of the former fourteen wins were recorded by the King of Cups.
- Since 2003, only once have they conceded more than one goal in a single game.
- Five of the preceding eight wins at this stadium had gone for the guests.
- The hosts had failed to score in three of their previous six appearances at this venue.
Bahia vs Gremio: Prediction
The King of Cups have been one of the overall best teams in the Serie A for the last several years, and they also have been contenders to lift the Libertadores. Last season they had finished fourth in the table, with an impressive goal difference of +25.
They might have struggled a bit this time around, but it needs to be noted that through all their tough fixtures, they have lost just twice.
They will try to come back strongly, and Baea seem to be a good candidate to take advantage of. They are at best a mid-table club, and in 2020, their sole wins have come against the absolute weakest teams in the competition.
On top of that, Portaluppi’s men also do have a good h2h record against this rival.
Taking into account all these observations, expect a great showing from Gremio this Thursday.
