Goias vs Bahia Prediction
Bahia was in line to pull one over the indomitable Flamengo the last match-day. However, after leading at half time, the latter, with the help of home advantage, netted three unanswered goals in a row, to record the three points.
Meanwhile, Goias will be proud of how they responded on the road, the preceding game week, after trailing against Vasco, 1-0, for the majority of the fixture. No one thought the guests would be able to fire in the equalizer with practically the last kick of the match, in the 90+7th minute.
This Sunday, the main factor for determining the outcome of the game would be the struggles of Bahia away from home. Already they are on a winless run of eight games, and in away fixtures, the team has managed a total of just four wins this campaign.
Meanwhile, Goias remained unbeaten in eight of their last nine home fixtures, and they scored twice or more in three of their last four appearances in front of the home crowd. They also had a five-match winning run at this setting in the process.
Finally, taking into account how Goias have dominated h2h encounters at this venue as well, expect the squad to record the three points this weekend.
