Bahia vs América-MG Prediction Today
The Bahians had a full schedule in the week. They needed to travel to Uruguay to defend, against the Hill, the advantage gained in the match in Salvador, when they won 2-0. They succeeded. They held the tie by 1 to 1 and ensured passage to the third round of the South American Cup.
Now, they will face who get the best in the duel involving the Nacional, Paraguay, and Botafogo. In the first game, the Paraguayans asserted the field and won 2-1. The second match was scheduled for August 16 in Rio de Janeiro.
Coach Enderson Moreira tried to reduce the effects of the midweek commitment by leaving some of his top players out of the way and preserving them for Saturday’s showdown, which is important in the fight against relegation.
With 18 points (four wins, six draws and six losses), Salvador’s team completed the seventeenth round at the edge of the relegation zone. It occupied the sixteenth position with the same score of the Chapecoense, first in the region of the sticking, that takes disadvantage when the criteria of tiebreaker are considered.
Recovered from a knee injury, right-back Nino Paraíba participated normally in training and became an option for Saturday’s match. The club also gained reinforcement from striker Clayton, 22, who was at Atlético-MG. In the process of recovery from surgery, he was loaned for a year. There is no scheduled date to make the debut yet.
Bahia also received an unexpected boost. Midfielder Allione, who had been loaned to the club by Palmeiras and traded by Sao Paulo with Racing from Argentina, was vetted at the medical examinations and returned to the Cube, which ruled out any health problems with the player. Thus, it will be at the disposal of Enderson Moreira.
The one who had the confirmed exit was Mena. The Chilean left-back was hired by Racing.
By dedicating itself exclusively to the Brazilian Championship, América-MG had a week off for training. It was the second since the arrival of coach Adilson Batista, who remains unbeaten in charge. With him, the Rabbit got two wins and one draw. Reaching 21 points (six wins, three draws and eight losses), he climbed to tenth place and “took off” from the relegation zone, although the threat of fall continues.
The new coach, who entered the spot for Ricardo Drubscky, used the mystery as strategy throughout the week. He closed the training sessions and did not reveal the team he wants to put on the field. One way to reduce Enderson Moreira’s lead. The coach of Bahia spent about a year and a half in command of the Rabbit. He left the club during the stoppage of the Brasileirão in the period of the Russian World Cup to take on the tricolor.
The only certainty in the lineup is the absence of the left-back Aderlan. He is suspended due to the accumulation of yellow cards. Norberto, who is the holder of the position, should not act because he recovers from a knee injury. So, Adilson will have to improvise. The main options for the position are the Juninho and Christian flyers.
Soccer Prediction of the Day Bahia vs América-MG
Adilson Batista promoted a radical change in the playing style of the Minas Gerais team. He chose to strengthen the defensive system by showing that every achievement achieved is important in this fight against relegation. Thus, it will be up to Bahia to go out more strongly in search of victory. The team has been unbeaten for seven games, but the sequence is not one of the most exciting. It was five draws and only two wins. The scenario makes the prognosis in the draw a good option for the duel.
