Bahia vs Santos
Competition: Brazil Serie A
Date: 14 July 2019
Kick-off: 00:00 CET
Bahia went 1-0 down late in the first half midweek, when they visited Gremio for a Copa do Brasil quarterfinal first leg, but they reacted early in the second half, equalized, and left Porto Alegre with a precious 1-1 draw. Their away goal doesn’t count as… away goal, if the return leg in a few days ends 0-0 there will be penalties, but still, it was important not to lose in Porto Alegre. One bad thing for Bahia was Nino’s injury. It’s not serious, but even so, the right-back may miss up to three matches. Bahia have played four games at home in this Serie A campaign, have won all four, and these are 12 of their 14 points (they have earned just two from five matches on the road).
Unlike Bahia, Santos didn’t play midweek, and don’t have an even more important return leg coming up in a few days. The club president told reporters that there is no problem between him and Jorge Sampaoli, the coach, despite numerous reports these last weeks claiming that things between the two are… tense. The president has had problems with Santos’ last… 10 coaches, so if the reports are true, it’s not really “news”. On a side-note, he promised to take care of the club’s debt to the players (they haven’t received a couple of salaries). Santos sit second in the Serie A table, on 20 points, nine of which were earned in their last three matches before the Copa América break. They are already out of Copa Sudamericana, out of Copa do Brasil, but their campaign in the championship has been, up to now, much-much better than what most expected.

Two wins for Bahia, one for Santos, and two draws, in the last five games between these two in Salvador.
Bahia vs Santos: Prediction
I’m counting on Santos to leave Salvador with at least a point, partly because right now, Bahia’s mind is mostly on the upcoming Copa do Brasil return leg against Gremio.
