Bahia vs Ceara Betting Tips

Bahia continue their quest for a top six finish as they host struggling Ceara in a Brazilian Serie A fixture at the Estadio Governador Roberto Santos. The hosts are unbeaten in seven of their last eight home matches and should ease past Ceara.

EC Bahia Form

Bahia earned a surprise 1-0 victory over Gremio in their last Brazilian Serie A fixture. They were made to work hard before sealing the win through substitute Arthur Caike's penalty in the first minute of added time.

The result means Roger Machado’s men are in sixth place Gremio in the race for a Copa Libertadores qualifying spot. Having gone unbeaten in seven of their last eight home matches, they are priced at 1.75 for a win which is my tip for Monday’s clash.

EC Bahia News

Top scorer Gilberto was taken off midway through the second half at Gremio but should return to the starting lineup on Monday. Arthur Caike could also be handed a start following his heroics last time out.

Ceara SC Form 

Ceara are coming off a 2-1 defeat at Santos last time out in the Brazilian Serie A. They took an early lead through Lima but could not hold on and conceded twice in the second half.

Adilson Batista’s men have now claimed just one win in their last 12 Serie A matches and are just above the relegation zone on goal difference. They have suffered eight defeats in that run which has them at 5.25 for an unlikely win on Monday while a draw is set at odds of 3.30.

Ceara SC News

Thiago Galhardo is the top scorer for Ceara with nine goals but has scored just twice in his last 10 matches. He should return to the starting lineup having been substituted in the second half at Santos while Lima could also continue in attack following his goal last time out.

Bahia vs Ceara Head to Head

Bahia have an 8-7 edge with seven draws from 22 previous matches against Ceara. Monday’s hosts have won four of the last six meetings and claimed a 2-1 victory in their last home fixture against Ceara.

Bahia vs Ceara Betting Odds

Bahia are priced at 1.75 for a win on Monday with a draw valued at 3.30 while a win for Ceara is set at odds of 5.25. An outcome of over 2.5 goals is offered at 2.50 on bet365 while Gilberto is backed at 4.50 to score the first goal.

Bahia vs Ceara Match Up

Gilberto will be the one to watch for Bahia having scored 11 goals in the Brazilian Serie A this season. The striker often has support from Elber and both men should combine well to trouble the Ceara backline.

In contrast, Ceara have struggled in attack lately with Thiago Galhardo on a four-match goal drought. With Lima also scoring just once in his last 10 matches, the visitors are likely to struggle against Bahia.
