The team led by Diego Aguirre will have a nice chance to defend their first place after the weekend given the relegation strugglers Bahia come to visit Morumbi on Saturday evening.

Tricolor Bahiaco are one of weakest travellers in the league and they’ll come into this as heavy underdogs. The team scored just five goals in 11 away games this season (1 win, 3 draws and 7 defeats in the process).

Interestingly, the maiden victory came just two weeks ago when Bahia saw off fellow strugglers Ceara 0-2.

Nevertheless, Enderson Moreira’s men quickly returned to the old habits, falling 2-0 to mid-table Atletico PR on the road. It was their third defeat in four matches, none of which saw them bag a goal.

Sao Paulo vs Bahia: Head-to-head

  • Outfits have 7 wins apiece coming into their 19th head to head encounter.
  • Sao Paulo were more successful on the home patch winning four, drawing three and losing two ahead of the landmark tenth encounter with Bahia at Morumbi.
  • Both teams scored in all of last four head to head affairs.

Sao Paulo vs Bahia: Prediction

It’s really hard to see the BTTS trend continued here knowing about Bahia’s attacking struggles on travels this season.

Moreover, Sao Paulo were impeccable in front of the home crowd so far in the campaign (seven wins and three draws in ten games).

The hosts won five and drew one of last six home matches in Serie A. Everything but a comprehensive home victory would thus be a massive upset for us here.

We expect the hosts to push strong from the very first whistle, meaning that you can also try with the HT/FT Sao Paulo/Sao Paulo bet.

Obviously, Sao Paulo to keep a clean sheet is a perfect alternative suggestion.
