We are reaching the halfway point in the Brasileirão Serie A, and things will get exciting once Bahia and Grêmio clash on the field this Saturday.
The team from Salvador is well-established in the middle of the table. However, everybody expected more from the new toy of the City Group, especially considering their great investment in the Transfer Market. The victory against Palmeiras seemed like the hit in the table that would get their season up and running, but it was an illusion, it seems.
Meanwhile, the giant team from Porto Alegre is having an excellent season. They want to go back to the Libertadores as soon as possible and, who knows, fight again for the title they won not so long ago. This definitely doesn’t seem like a duel between recently ascended teams, but that’s the magic of the Brasileirão.
Saturday, July 1st at 3:30 pm ET the Fonte Nova Arena
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Bahia?
Bahia currently sits at the 14th spot and is trying to pick up the pace, as they come in with 3 wins, 3 draws, and 6 losses in their current run. Their form has been inconsistent, to say the least, during the most recent games.
In this context, Tricolor Bahiaco lost two, drew two, and won only one match in the last five Brazil Serie A encounters.
The fixtures show that they got the better of Palmeiras by 1:0 but lost to Internacional by 2:0 as well as Fluminense by 2:1 in their latest game.
Why Bet on Grêmio?
Grêmio has been at the top of the scoreboards, and is now in the 2nd spot with 23 points, due to a good run with 7 wins, 2 draws, and 3 losses. They won four out of their last five matches in this league. Rei de Copas won over Athletico-PR, as well as Sao Paulo, by 2:1.
Yet, they were convincingly beaten by Flamengo by 3:0.
However, the big team from Porto Alegre got back on their feet pretty fast and mercilessly crushed America MG by 3:1. Not only that, they even scored more goals in their previous match against Coritiba.
The only stain in their excellent return season has been Suarez’s situation, which has been a headache for the directives that have preferred to stay silent in the meantime.
Betting Analysis: Bahia vs Grêmio
Just because the Bahia fixtures tell us about their bad form, it doesn’t mean that Tricolor Bahiaco cannot get the upper hand in this match.
However, we are placing our bet on Grêmio to keep shining through as they go visit Bahia and take a victory on the road once again.
Go for a victory for the visitors at +175. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $175 for a total pay of $275.
