Reason For Botafogo vs Bahia Betting Tips

Thursday’s Copa Sudamericana round of 16, second leg action features an all Brazilian clash between Botafogo and Bahia. The hosts will be looking to overturn the 2-1 defeat they suffered in the first leg with a strong showing in front of the home crowd.

Having been 2-0 down in Salvador, Botafogo could have came into this second leg in a far worse position, but Rodrigo Pimpao’s crucial strike has left them with a fighting chance of reaching the quarter-finals. Fogo’ were actually quite unlucky to lose the first leg given the balance of the match overall, but with a crucial away goal in the bag, they’ll still be confident of coming back nonetheless.

That’s because the side are typically a powerful outfit in front of the home crowd, having lost just 1 of their last 15 games as hosts, winning 7 times in the process. Arriving off the back of a solid win collected on the road against Vitoria and drawing with high flying Sao Paulo, morale is high in home ranks and those that take to the pitch will be looking to deliver in front of an expectant crowd.

Meanwhile, as happy as Bahia will be to have established a lead to bring with them to Rio, that happiness is surely tinged with slight disappointment that their lead isn’t a more substantial one, with the task at hand still a huge one given the visitors’ struggles on the road.

Indeed, despite being ahead, Tricolor still face a battle as regards reaching the quarter finals, a stage which they’ve never advanced to before in continental action. Having lost 4 of their last 5 away games and won just 2 of their last 17, it’s clear for all to see that Bahia are not a powerful away force and that has to be a big concern ahead of Thursday’s trip.

Ultimately, we view this tie as far from over and Botafogo will surely fancy their chances of fighting back, up against a Bahia outfit showing very little resolve on the road. Bahia have looked very weak on their travels throughout the year but have been particularly poor in recent weeks and are unlikely to find a remedy for that prior to kick off.

As such, backing Botafogo to win the match looks to provide good value and at current prices, is exactly where our money is going. Fogo’ rarely fail to turn up as hosts in the Sudamericana, evidenced by the fact they’ve won 5 of their last 8 home games in it and we fancy them to progress to the next round via a 2-0 margin of victory.
