Bahia vs Gremio (By: Dajkula)
Bahia will be hosting Gremio in the 7`th round of the Brazilian Serie A. Bahia is, interestingly, in front of Gremio on the 8`th place with 10 points. Gremio is only 18`th with only 5 points and 1-2-3 so far. I think their involvement in the Copa Libertadores has taken a lot out of them but now they have a break. They can put a bit more emphasis on the league which has suffered and they have some momentum behind them. Gremio has won their last two matches but both at home. They played the cup in midweek but so did Bahia.
Bahia has finished in the middle of the table in the previous season and they faltered big on away ground. They are a real home team which was quite noticed with only 2 home losses in the previous season. Bahia has 3-0-0 at home though this game is not played at their regular home but in Pituacu, in the same city. Their regular venue is used for upcoming America`s cup matches. So, this will not be the optimal conditions for Bahia but neither is Gremio without problems today.
Gremio will be missing a couple of important players, because of injury. Gremio is without Kannemann(def.3-1) Marcelo Oliveira(def.0-0), Paulo Miranda(def.0-0), Cortez(def.2-0), Alisson(att.4-0), Luan (att.4-0), Maicon (mid.3-0, captain), Matheus Henrique (mid.5-0) and Everton(att.6-3, first scorer).
Bahia has all available today.
So, even if Bahia doesn`t play at their regular ground, they have the advantage. The absences of the visitors are quite notable and the form is far from good.
