Ceara vs Bahia
Brazilian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 8 June 2019
Kick-Off at 23:30 UK / 00:30 CET
Venue: Arena Castelao (Fortaleza).
Bahia found a strong vein of form in recent weeks and they hope to stick to it and pic up another result on Saturday evening against Ceara away at Arena Castelao. Tricolor de Aco climbed up to sky-high 6th place after edging past the likes of Fluminense and Gremio in last two rounds. They confirmed a phenomenal shape with two separate 1-0 wins over Sao Paulo in the last 16 round of Copa do Brasil.
It has been a pretty messy reading for fans on travels, though, as Roger Machado’s men took just one point from three away games in the league so far. Nonetheless, Bahia did keep back-to-back clean sheets in last two away fixtures in all competitions, both against Sao Paulo. Their defensive line capitalized just once in past five outings. Will such phenomenal thread be continued this weekend?
Ceara vs Bahia: Head-to-head
The head to head record also suggests we could be in for a pleasant evening for visiting fans at Arena Castelao.
Bahia won four and drew one of past five encounters with Tricolor de Aco.
Bahia conceded just one goal in last four meetings against Ceara.
Ceara vs Bahia: Prediction
Ceara won two of last three league games, but we have to say they have been pretty inconsistent with their form at the start of the new season. The lack of defensive meticulousness is the main problem for the head coach Enderson Moreira as Vozao kept just one clean sheet in seven outings so far in the season.
The hosts returned to the old habits after two mentioned wins. They fell 0-1 at home to Santos last weekend. Nothing expect for Bahia’s struggles on travels works in Ceara’ s favour as we recognize a huge value in backing the visitors to leave Arena Castelao unbeaten at the odds of 1.55. Braver punters ac go for the clean away win at 2.80.
