Criciuma vs Bahia Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Reason For Criciuma vs Bahia Betting Tips

Both teams finished safely in mid-table last season but have dreams of returning to the top flight having both been there two season ago. The early signs at least suggest the two clubs that have mirrored each other in recent years are in with a shout of returning to Serie A.

That is certainly true of Bahia. The Salvador club have made a fine start to the season and come into this match on the back of 3 straight wins that have propelled them up into 3rd place. Victory here could see them go top of Serie B although they would be relying on favours from elsewhere for that to happen. Their last 3 wins have been particularly impressive, all coming by margins of 2 or more goals and their only defeat so far was away to current leaders Vasco de Gama.

This will be another tough game and they have only won once on the road so far. Criciuma are 3 places further back in 6th place having made a pretty solid start to the season. They were beaten 1-0 away to Sampaio Correa on Saturday and have struggled away from home but at Estádio Heriberto Hülse, which has often been a real fortress for them, they have 4 wins out of 4 in Serie B this season with 12 of their 13 points coming on home soil.

That includes 2 home wins against sides currently in the top 5 and they beat 5th placed Brasil de Pelotas 3-0 in their last home game so have no reason to fear Bahia. Therefore backing Criciuma to win at 7/5 looks a decent punt here given the confidence they play with on their own patch and they did also win the corresponding fixture last season.

Head to Head

These sides have met in all of the last 3 seasons, two of which were in the top flight. Both sides have two wins each with both of Criciuma's victories coming at home.
