Bahia will welcome Criciúma to Arena Fonte Nova for a matchday 10 fixture in Brazil Serie B. The last meeting on 30th September 2016 ended in a Bahia 2-0 win. Both sides have met eight times in the most recent seasons. Bahia has won 3 matches, and Criciúma triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.50 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
Bahia’s latest fixture against Tombense ended in an away 1-0 loss. Tricolor de Aço dominated the possession of the ball but didn’t take advantage of it.
Criciúma’s recent game against Cruzeiro ended in a home 0-1 loss. Tigre’s strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.
Since the start of the season, Esquadrão de Aço is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 4 games on home soil. Bahêa has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 75% of their home games.
Criciúma has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Criciúma wins 0.50 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. It is clear that their strikers will have to step up in the following games. Criciúma failed to score in 75% of away games this campaign.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won four consecutive matches. Tricolor de Aço is yet to lose at home, being undefeated in four games.
This season hasn’t unfolded as planned, and Tigre haven’t tasted an away victory at all. The visitors have lost 50% of all games on the road while conceding on average 1.00 goals in the process.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Bahia wins on average 3.00 points per home game, compared to 0.50 points per away game for Criciúma. My prediction is Bahia to win.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 25% of Bahia’s home and Criciúma’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
