Expert Betting Tips
Bahia currently represents Serie B, but we doubt that in such a short period they got used to be non-elite club. Also, Bahia has always been a home team so in the current championship they have the best home statistics in the division. Secondly, last year Bahia beat Atletico Paranaense three times, despite being relegated from Serie A at the end of 2021. We believe that Bahia will not lose or seal a draw.
