Bahia vs Avai Prediction 16 July 2017

Tournament: Campeonato Brasileiro Série A
Location: Arena Fonte Nova
Match date: 16.07.2017 at 23:00

On July 16 2017 at 23:00 in the upcoming regular game of the 14th matchday of the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A at the Arena Fonte Nova the local Bahia are playing against Avai.

Bahia are rather unstable in the current season and that’s probably why they are now in the middle of the standings almost at the equator of the Campeonato. They are still only going to prove that they deserve to take part in the elite division. In the latest match Bahia outplayed Ponte Preta 0:3 and it was only their 4th victory since the beginning of the campaign.

As for Avai, they were the vice-champions of the previous season of the Brazilian Serie B. in their first campaign in the Serie A Avai can hardly compete against their rivals. Even though the team managed to outplay Botafogo and Gremio and drew Ponte Preta, Avai still lost to Coritiba 1:4. As a result Avai only gained 12 points in their 13 matches played in the current season of the national elite division with 8:17 goal difference.

As the results of the games already played between them show, Bahia can be considered to be the favorites of the forthcoming match. Last time the teams played was in August last year and Bahia won 0:3 at the home pitch of Avai. Even though there are only three points between the teams in the standings, Bahia are obviously much better according to their statistics and results. That’s why it seems to us that the hosts are more likely to win in the upcoming match.
