Bahia vs Santos – Brazilian Serie A: Coritiba hosts Flamengo this Thursday on a Brazilian Serie A’s match…
Flamengo is the most disappointing team of the season on this Brazilian Serie A.
The club invested millions to win in every competition they participated on.
But they’ll finish the season only with the title conquered on the state championship and maybe the Copa Sudamericana title. The dissatisfaction their fans feel show that it is simply not enough.
Their campaign was marked by inconsistency with the change of manager – with the departure of Zé Ricardo and the arrival of Rueda – and the failure of a team that costed a lot of money to build.
With only 1 win on their last 5 matches, Flamengo is outside the Libertadores’ qualification spots.
They sit in only 7th place with 50 points. Away from home, Flamengo has only won 4 out of the 17 matches they played.

As for Coritiba, their fight is different. Living their best period on this competition, Coxa is fighting to definitely get away from the relegation zone.
The team has 40 points and sit in 15th place, which means that a win here could be the decisive step for them to take in order to finally be safe from relegation.
They are unbeaten on their last 6 matches – getting 3 wins and 3 draws – in what is their biggest positive streak of the season.
Playing at home, their record isn’t that good. Coritiba has 6 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses with a goal record of 19 goals scored and 16 goals conceded.
Bahia vs Santos– Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is an important match for both teams. Coritiba can finally step away from the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, Flamengo comes into this match under a lot of pressure, since failing to qualify for the Copa Libertadores would be an inexplicable failure.
Because all of that, I believe on a match with goals, although I also fancy the DNB favouring the home side.
