Corinthians vs Bahia
Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Thursday, 22nd June 2017
Kick off at 23:30 UK/ 00:30 CET
Venue: Arena Corinthians.
Corinthians will be looking to return on the winning ways after ending the six-win streak with a goalless draw at Coritiba on Sunday.
Timao are set to host Bahia in the first match of the day on Thursday in the ninth round of Serie A.
Fabio Carille can be proud of his team’s displays at the start of the new season. In spite of a goalless draw at Coritiba Corinthians are still two points clear at the top of the standings.
Timao celebrated three wins on the bounce in front of their fans beating the likes of Santos, Sao Paulo and Cruzeiro along the way and we can’t see how Bahia would cause them troubles.
The visitors dropped down to 12th position in the standings after conceding as many as four goals to Palmeiras at the weekend.
This will definitely be the music to the ears of Jo who has four goals to his name for Corinthians and who will be the main threat to Jean’s goal on Thursday.
Corinthians vs Bahia: Head to head
Corinthians have been slightly better winning seven out of 17 head to head encounters, while Tricolor de Aco trail by two.
This will be the first H2H encounter between the two sides since November 2014 following Bahia’s return to the elite.
Corinthians vs Bahia: Prediction
The gulf in quality must be notable and the only question ahead of the match is how many goals will end up in Bahia’s net.
The home win has to be the banker bet at the odds of 1/2, while you can also take Jo to score anytime at quite attractive 11/8 odds.
