Bahia vs Palmeiras
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 29 August 2020
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Arena Fonte Nova.
Verdao have been one of the best teams in the competition for the past few years, and they had finished in the podium the last season. This time around too they have made a strong start to their campaign, and despite having a game in hand, they are just 4 points away from the top-most spot.
It also deserves to be mentioned that they are unbeaten so far this season. Meanwhile, their counterparts would have had a 100% winless record in the 2020 edition of the Serie A if not for their wins against the two newly-promoted teams.
Going on, they also have had an unimpressive h2h record against this rival over the years. For the reasons, expect Palmeiras to have the upper hand this Saturday.
Bahia vs Palmeiras: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Verdao have recorded eight of the former ten overall wins.
- The last they lost against this opponent was back in 2012.
- They have failed to score goals only once in the past ten match-ups.
- At this stadium, the guests have a 100% unbeaten record.
Bahia vs Palmeiras: Prediction
Baea were winless in seven of the preceding nine overall match-ups, and they had a modest mid-table finish the last season in the Serie A. This campaign too, their sole wins have come against the weakest teams in the competition.
In the meantime, their counterparts had finished in the podium in 2019, and this edition of the league has seen them stay unbeaten so far.
They were also unbeaten in 24 of their former 26 overall games, and have lost just twice on the road in the past nine-month period.
On top of that, Vanderlei Luxemburgo’s men have a terrific h2h record against this foe over the years. In fact, the last they lost an h2h clash was back in 2012, and they have a 100% unbeaten record in such fixtures at this stadium.
As such, expect Palmeiras to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.
