Spirits will be high in the Bahia camp following their recent three match winning streak, though the club’s supporters will worry that their positive surge will end once the Bahiaço play away from the Arena Fonte Nova.
All three of Bahia’s recent victories were secured in those familiar surroundings, though the team’s form on the road remains hugely disappointing in comparison.
With just one win from their last ten matches on their travels, Bahia have a travel sickness that they just can’t seem to shake, though Mano Menezes’s charges could pick up a useful point from their latest assignment against Coritiba.
Coritiba are languishing near the wrong end of the Serie A table, though they have proven a tough nut to crack at the Couto Pereira Stadium, where they were toppled just twice in their last seven games.
The Coxa – managed by World Cup winning legend Jorginho – shared the spoils in two of their last four matches at home however, and having drawn their last two meetings with Bahia in Paraná, another stalemate looks possible between the well-matched sides on Monday.
Alongside our draw forecast, a 1-1 correct score prediction is also favoured. Modest goal-scorers Coritiba notched exactly once in four of their last five home games, while Bahia hit exactly one goal in each of their last two away fixtures. A combination of the teams’ recent output in the final third makes a 1-1 draw an outcome worth backing.
