Bahia vs Atlético MG – Brazilian Serie A : Bahia hosts Atlético Mineiro this Sunday at the Arena Fonte Nova…
On the 34th round of the Brazilian Serie A. Bahia’s momentum in the competition is very good.
The team seemed destined to be relegated at some point during the season, but they reacted and now they are ambitioning qualifying for the continental competitions like the Copa Libertadores or Copa Sudamericana.
And that’s possible. Bahia has 45 points, occupying the 9th place and, with the increase on the number of teams that qualify for those competitions, they might achieve something that no one expected them to.
Atlético Mineiro is also dreaming with a spot in the Copa Libertadores. The team that everyone expected to do well didn’t have their dream 2017,
so ensuring that spot would be an important consolation prize. Galo has the same points as Bahia but they are 1 place behind due to the tiebreak criteria.

Atlético Mineiro has the players, has the money and a superior roster compared to Bahia’s. But things aren’t working out for them this season.
They already had several managers in command and nothing seems enough for them to deliver what was expected of them.
Midweek the team didn’t play well, once again, needing to comeback twice against Atlético Goianiense who is in last place of this Brazilia Serie A and is already virtually relegated.
Bahia vs Atlético MG – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Bahia on the other hand, seems to be reborn under the command of Paulo Cesar Carpegiani.
The team reacted and is starting to be able to think about qualifying for the Copa Libertadores, which seemed unthinkable just a few rounds ago.
The DNB in favour of Bahia, who is playing at home, seems like a very good bet here.
