Bahia are playing one of their best season in a very long time. In the 21st century, they were either outside the Serie A or in the lower part of the Brazilian top-flight division. This year started pretty well for the Tricolor as they reached the finals in their state league (Baiano) and then continued to play well in Serie A. Right now, they are 4th with 30 points, only one point from the top spot. So, depending on the other results, Bahia could even get the spot with a potential win over out-of-form Cuiaba.

Since coming to Serie A, Cuiaba have mostly been in the lower part of the league's table. Last year was their best as they finished 12th and secured Copa Sudamericana, where they are doing great, considering they secured the knockout phase fairly easily. On the other hand, they are not doing that well in the domestic league. Right now, they are 16th with 14 points, just two away from dropping to the relegation zone. However, they have one game played fewer, and with a positive result, they would move closer to the middle of the table.

Bahia vs Cuiaba pick: Bahia to win

Bahia are in good form, having won four of the last six games. Even in the matches they lost (against Palmeiras and Sao Paulo), they did very well and deserved at least draws. Also, the primary reason for Bahia's great season is an incredible home record where they won all seven Serie A games with only three conceded goals!

On the other hand, Cuiaba are without a win in the past five games. Yes, four of those were draws, but objectively, they were outplayed in every single match. So, it is hard to expect a positive result against the best home team in the league.

Simply put, Bahia are a better team. Considering all the above, we believe that Bahia should secure a comfortable win and extend its 100% win rate in home Serie A games.

Bahia team news

Right full-back Santiago Arias is unavailable since he is still in Copa America with his national team, Colombia. However, Bahia have an equally good option in Gilberto. So, his absence isn't too much of a problem. 

Midfielder Jean Lucas suffered an injury in the previous match and had to leave the field about 13 minutes before the end of the match. Still, according to Brazilian media, the injury isn't too severe, and we might see him back on the pitch.

Midfielder Nicolas Acevedo will miss the match due to a long-term injury, while David Duarte is questionable with an illness.

Cuiabá team news

Andre Luis, Filipe Augusto, and Railan all missed the previous game with injuries and will most likely remain sidelined. Forward Deyverson is also out, although with a long-term injury. 

On July 10th, Gabryel Freitas left the team on loan and joined Oeste. The 21-year-old forward arrived in Cuiaba in January 2024 but got almost no playing time, so his departure on loan was probably a good move.

Cuiaba's total market value is just 28.35 million euros, compared to Bahia's 71 million euros.
