We are diving in the middle of the 16th matchday in the Brazil Serie A Season. This time, we focus on watching the clash at Fonte Nova Arena, in which Bahia will be hosting Corinthians for an interesting game.
Although both teams are at the end of the table, they face different situations. The Coringao was one of the strongest teams last season and, in this edition, their form fell off a cliff. The Bahiaço just came from the second division, being the only small team to accompany a bunch of G-12 sides that managed to go up. However, as the new City Group addition, they spend an important amount, that hasn’t been effective. Both teams are looking to get the points required to keep themselves away from relegation, so they will likely go all out on this clash.

Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Bahia?
Bahia currently sits at the 16th spot in the score table, trying to keep themselves away from relegation, as they have 3 wins, 4 draws, and 8 losses. It would be fair to say that the Bahiaço has been struggling on its patch of late, with eight of its previous ten Série A fixtures ending in defeat.
They are currently on a run of four games without a goal as well. With 15 of the previous 21 Bahia matches at their venue in the Serie A serving up no more than a couple of goals.
Why Bet on Corinthians?
The visitors, Corinthians, are one spot above their opponents, with 4 wins, 3 draws, and 7 losses as of this moment, and coming off a win on their most recent clash. The Coringao has not been in great form on the road itself before its next match, but it had still only lost once in seven.
Throughout their last 21 away matches in the Série A, the team has been involved in just five contests in which they have both scored and conceded during the same 91 minutes.
Betting Analysis: Bahia vs. Corinthians
Both teams are trying to crawl their way out of a bad position. However, we are expecting Corinthians to keep their momentum going. The locals have a fair share of talent in the squad, even surprising everyone by beating Palmeiras some weeks ago, being this the beginning of the fall for the Paulistas. Whatever the case, they have been incapable of achieving enough chemistry on the pitch.
In this scenario is hard to see the Tricolor getting a good result. We’ll go with a 2-0 win for Corinthians.
Go for a victory for the visitors at +225. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $225 for a total payout of $325.
