This Tuesday, on a match of the 23rd round of the Brazilian Serie A…
Atlético GO hosts Bahia at 00:00 (London time) at the Estádio Olímpico, in Goiânia (GO).
ATLÉTICO-GO: The team is coming off a great win on the last round, when they won 1-0 away against leader Corinthians.
However, even with that win, the team is still at the bottom of the league table, with only 18 points.
For this match, coach João Paulo Sanches will not count with defensive midfielder Paulinho, who is suspended due to receiving his 3rd yellow card, so André Castro will be his replacement.
Probable Starting XI: Marcos; Jonathan, Gilvan, William Alves and Bruno Pacheco; André Castro, Igor, Andrigo, Jorginho and Luiz Fernando; Walter. Manager: João Paulo Sanches
BAHIA: The team from Salvador da Bahia is coming off a loss on the last round, where the team ended up losing to Botafogo 2-1 at home. With that loss, the team is still with 26 points and sits in 15th place.
Right now, they are only 1 point ahead of Chapecoense, who is the first team in the relegation zone.
For this match, coach Preto Casagrande will have some important returns.
After several months injured, Hernane, Edigar Junio and Allione are once again available to play an official match, so they should already sit on the bench.
Probable Starting XI:Jean; Eduardo, Rodrigo Becão, Lucas Fonseca and Juninho Capixaba; Renê Júnior, Edson, Régis and Zé Rafael; Mendoza and Rodrigão. Manager: Preto Casagrande.
Atletico GO vs Bahia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is a match that tends to be balanced.
Atlético-GO has improved comparing to how they were in the start of this competition, but even after that improvement, it is not enough to get on a winning streak.
The team has every player available, is coming off a good win against 1st place and are looking for another 3 points here.
As for Bahia, they have made the opposite. After a good start, the teams has gotten a lot worse and that is due to some injuries over the course of the season.
For this match, they will have some reinforcements available again so I believe they have good chances of winning.
In my opinion, it will be a very close match, but I see value on Bahia, with some players returning and having a better team technically,
I believe they can win. My investment is going to be on Bahia to win, but I also suggest Bahia +0.25.
