Sao Paulo vs Bahia - Free Betting Tips

Sao Paulo
Bahia

Sao Paulo are tied for the lead with Internacional and will need all three points from their match against Bahia in order to claim first place in the Brazilian Serie A. Their leadership rivals have a much more difficult match on Sunday against Gremio, so there’s a good chance for Sao Paulo to take lead alone for the first time this season — if they can overcome their rivals in this fixture. In contrast, the visitors have just entered the top half of the table, and they will be more than happy with one point at Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo.

Sao Paulo are clearly the better team and with the fixture being on their home turf, we can only find odds of 1/2 at BetVictor on their victory. The hosts are expected to come out firing on all cylinders and take the initiative right from the start, while the visitors barricade themselves and prepare for a 90 minute siege. Under these circumstances, a bet on fewer than 1.5 goals to be scored is worth considering at odds of 11/5 with Betfred. Finally, the Sao Paulo vs Bahia best odds of 12/1 are offered by Coral on Sao Paulo to win from behind, which could happen if the hosts concede an early goal.

Sao Paulo vs Bahia Betting Tips: Form Guide

Sao Paulo Enjoying Home Success

Playing at home has meant a great deal for Sao Paulo throughout the season, as they have won most of the games at Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo. Only they and leading Internacional are still undefeated at home, and canny Sao Paulo vs Bahia match previews will expect them to extend the invincible run. Thus far, Sao Paulo have played 11 games this season and have won eight of them, while also scoring in the other three draws. Furthermore, Sao Paulo are the team with the second best attack in the Brazilian Serie A and are expected to bring plenty of attacking power in this fixture with Bahia as a result.

Last week, Sao Paulo played against Atletico Mineiro on the road in what was expected to be a high scoring match, as  both sides had scored at will throughout the season — but things didn’t quite pan out like that. Atletico Mineiro won by 1-0 after Sao Paulo scored the only goal of the match in their own net, nine minutes after the game started. Excluding this recent blip, Sao Paulo have managed to score at least once in each of their previous 7 matches, emerging victorious each time.

Bahia Struggling Away From Home

Bahia have obtained the vast majority of their points in matches played at home, and currently sit in ninth place in the Brazilian Serie A tables. This is in line with their expectations, and their goal is to finish in the top half, a comfortable distance from the relegation zone. In the matches played on the road however, they have been unable to win more than once, giving them one of the worst away records in the league. Particularly worryingly ahead of this match, they are also struggling to find the back of the net at all — which could mean an easy night for the Sao Paulo defence.

Bahia have won two of the last three matches by 2-0, once at home and once on the road. They’ve lost the other three games and have been unable to score at all against their rivals, who have tended to seize the initiative early in the match. As a result, our Sao Paulo vs Bahia betting tips for today are based on the conviction that the hosts will use the same attacking attitude against their defensive-minded opponents; confronted with relentless pressure, Bahia are likely to concede, and don’t have high enough quality strikers to recover the scoreline in the aftermath.

Sao Paulo vs Bahia Preview: Recent Meetings

Sao Paulo have accumulated nearly twice as many points as their opponents and are favorites to win the Brazilian Serie A this season. They play at home, where they haven’t lost a single match this season, and also enjoy a clear edge in the head-to-head record. In nine matches played at Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo, Sao Paulo have won four, lost twice, while three matches have resulted in low-scoring draws.

A closer look at the games played over the years by these two teams will reveal the fact that there is surprising balance; Bahia have mostly held their ground. These two teams have met a total of 18 times and each won seven matches, with only four draws recorded. The prospect of splitting points is not attractive for the home team and our Sao Paulo vs Bahia betting tips are on the home win to nil, even if that does somewhat defy the recent history between these two sides.

Sao Paulo vs Bahia Prediction: Sao Paulo to Nil

Sao Paulo are clearly the better team and they are playing at home, where they have yet to lose this season.  They are justly credited as favourites by bookmakers and punters can’t expect high odds on their victory; it just seems far too likely they will prevail. We’re confident that they will dominate the match from the get-on against a team determined to defend, albeit — we believe — unsuccessfully. Our main Sao Paulo vs Bahia prediction is on the home side to win, but we also believe they will grab the W without conceding too.

Over the years, the matches played between these two teams were frequently high-scoring ones, with Bahia occasionally drawing first blood. If the hosts underestimate them as they usually do with teams at the edge of the top 10, they could find themselves in the unenviable position of trailing early in the match. Even if this happens, they’ve got the best attacking play in the Brazilian Serie A and should be able to offset an early deficit, so we like the look of the odds on Sao Paulo to come from behind to clinch victory.

We hope that you have enjoyed reading our match predictions on the Brazilian top flight. There’s plenty of quality content at Betting.org dedicated to South American football, as well as international leagues such as the Premier League and Serie A — so we hope to see you back soon.
