Internacional and Bahia face at Estádio José Pinheiro Borba (Beira‑Rio), in a match for the 9th round of the Serie A. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 2 wins and 1 loss in the last 3 matches.

Analysis of Internacional

The home team is currently in the 6th position of the league, with 13 points won, after 4 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Avaí, by (2‑0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Vasco da Gama, by (2‑1). This is a team that usually plays better at home, where they have won 12 points, against only 1 point in away matches.

They have won the last 4 home matches for this competition. there are 2 periods that stand out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (31'‑45') and 5 of their 14 goals between (46'‑60').

Internacional make a reasonable campaign in Série A, have seen their series of 4 games of invincibility to end in the last round and are looking for recovery to try to get close to the first-placed. The team need to improve mainly in the offensive sector, since they have the seventh best attack of the competition with 10 goals scored in 8 games, while the defense suffered 7 goals and is the sixth best, having suffered 2 goals against Vasco da Gama in the last round, one of the worst attacks of the championship. 
Playing at home, as the match of Wednesday, Internacional make a great campaign, having won all 4 games they played so far, having the third best attack with 9 goals scored and the third best defense, with only 2 goals suffered, being a very difficult team to be beaten in this type of situation. 
For the game against Bahia, coach Odair Hellmann will not be able to count on defender Emerson Santos due to suspension.

Confirmed Lineup: Marcelo Lomba, Zeca, V. Cuesta, Roberto, Uendel, Edenílson, Nonato, Rodrigo Lindoso, A. D'Alessandro, N. López, Rafael Sóbis.
Coach: Zé Ricardo.

Analysis of Bahia

The away team is currently in the 3rd position of the league, with 14 points won, after 4 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Grêmio, by (1‑0). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Ceará, by (0‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 2 points in away matches and 12 at their stadium, with 8 goals scored and 4 conceded at home, against 2 goals scored and 4 conceded in away matches. In the last 4 away league matches Bahia has a record of 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 2 points out of 12 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 4 away matches. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 50 of the last 74 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In the last 20 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 6 of their 17 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Bahia make a good campaign in Série A, come from 4 games of invincibility of which they won 2 and drew 2 and go in search of another positive result to have more tranquility in the period of stop for the Copa America. The team have a reasonable attack that has scored 10 goals in 8 games, being the seventh best of the league, while the defense suffered 8 goals and is the eighth worst, needing to improve in both to continue fighting among the first-placed. 
Playing away from home, such as this Wednesday's game, Bahia have not been performing well, having not yet won, with 2 draws and 2 defeats and did not score a single goal in the last 3 games, needing to increase production in this type of situation. 
For the game against Internacional, coach Roger Machado has no problems in the starting lineup and goes on the pitch with the best.

Confirmed Lineup: Douglas Friedrich, Moisés, Lucas Fonseca, Nino Paraíba, Jackson, Ramires, Douglas, Flavio, Elton, Arthur Caike, Fernandão.
Coach: Roger Machado.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match is the home team winning. Internacional are a very strong team at their stadium, so much so that they have won the 4 games they played in the home condition for Série A and both their defense and their attack work very well in this type of situation, being that the team scored 9 goals and suffered only 2 in these 4 matches. Bahia, meanwhile, drop a lot of income away from home, have not yet won after 4 matches and have not scored goals for 3 away games. In view of these factors, we believe Internacional will be superior and conquer the 3 points in this game.
