Bahia vs Palmeiras Prediction Today
The Bahia tricolor does not have great goals to achieve in the Brasileirão. The goal is to stay in the ‘dead zone’ and eventually secure a place in the qualifying block for the 2019 edition of the Copa Sudamericana. Only brightness hopes even in the 2014 version of Sula. In it, guaranteed the passage to the eighth-finals and will face Botafogo in the fight for survival from next Thursday, September 20.
This match will certainly influence when the coach Enderson Moreira set the stage for Sunday’s showdown. Players who are experiencing excessive physical wear or greater possibility of injury will certainly not be related. The Bahia situation on the leaderboard allows this luxury. With 28 points (seven wins, seven draws and ten losses), the team maintains a ‘respectable’ distance from the relegation zone.
To play against the green, it was not the only luxury the coach can count on. After 54 days of duels in all the finals and midweek, for the first time Enderson Moreira had the week free of preparation. This gave him time to clarify technical doubts, for example, that he is the holder of the right-back. Bruno disputed his position with Nino Paraíba. However, if he came to that conclusion, he did not reveal. As usual, the coach remained mysterious regarding the team’s lineup.
In the case of Palmeiras, trying to anticipate the climb is an almost impossible mission. With the team involved in three competitions, the changes have been frequent. Thus, it is difficult to know who will be on the field this Sunday in Salvador wearing the shirt of the alviverde. It’s easier to know who will not be. This is the case of striker Deyverson, who achieved the feat of the triple suspension. He picked up the Brazilian Cup, Brasileirao and Libertadores.On Wednesday night, the home team was beaten by Cruzeiro, 1-0, by the first leg of the semifinals of the Copa do Brasil. The return match is scheduled for September 26. Next Thursday, September 20, will face Colo Colo in Chile in the first encounter for the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores. Thus, the trend is that the best players available, those who are considered holders are preserved for that game.This could even mean the entry of youngsters like the 19-year-old striker Papagaio to face Bahia. Without Deyverson, suspended, it would be very risky to put Borja on the pitch. After all, that could mean running out of the top two attackers for the game in Santiago.
Such a choice should be made even with Palmeiras having real chances to ambition the Brazilian title. With 46 points (13 wins, seven draws and four losses), the team occupies the third place in the standings. The difference for Internacional, leader, and São Paulo, vice-leader, is only three points.
