Bahia vs Vasco da Gama
Brazil – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 27 May 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Arena Fonte Nova (Salvador).
Bahia are going to take on Vasco da Gama in the 7th round of Brazilian Serie A on Sunday evening.
The hosts are not enjoying a good start of the season as they managed to book only one win in the first six rounds. They picked up just two points from the last four matches and Guto Ferreira’s side have severe troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net. They are one point away from the safe zone and if they don’t improve very soon, home side might get into the relegation trouble. Their home performances are encouraging as they still haven’t suffered a defeat when playing in front of their fans.
Vasco da Gama can be content of their start as they lost only one game so far. They are sitting on the 9th place and are not far from getting involved in the battle for the top spots. Andres Rios and the lads have been pretty productive so far as they managed to produce ten goals in the opening six rounds. The visitors managed to get back home undefeated from both away matches this season.
Bahia vs Vasco da Gama: Head-to-head
We haven’t seen an away win in their head to head clashes since 2012. In general. Hosting teams have been much more successful and in the last five occasions the crowd was able to see only the victories of home sides. Their recent clashes were pretty efficient as four out of their last five clashes ended with at least three goals.
Bahia vs Vasco da Gama: Prediction
Although they are not in a good momentum, the hosts should take opportunity to book an important victory in this one. The tradition is one their side, they celebrated three straight wins against this opposition at home ground and Vasco da Gama had an away mid-week clash in the Copa Libertadores.
Since Bahia have troubles in converting their chances into goals, and on the other hand they haven’t conceded in the last four matches against Vasco da Gama at Arena Fonte Nova, this one should stay under 2.5 margin.
