Bahia and ABC have both delivered a "par" performance so far, to use a golfing expression. Both hold mid-table positions in the Copa do Nordeste.

Insights:
  • Bahia have the most scored goals (14) in Copa do Nordeste
  • ABC have the fewest conceded goals (2) away in Copa do Nordeste

It's no vacation for neither Bahia nor ABC as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.

These teams have little in common geographically as ABC have to travel 1100 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

ABC form and stats

ABC, who have the fewest conceded goals (2) away in Copa do Nordeste, have six points from their first three away games in the Copa do Nordeste, meaning two victories and a loss.

ABC delivered a 2-2 draw playing at home against 4 de Julho (placed 7th) in their previous match; a Copa do Nordeste game. Preceding that match was the 1-1 draw at home vs Sampaio Corrêa.

Drawing 2-2 against 4 de Julho after 90 minutes last time out was very disappointing after leading the match 2-0. Their manager S. Nicoladelli needs to evaluate why the team couldn't defend their result.

A new game in only four days for ABC, the Copa do Brasil home match versus Botafogo. Busy days.

ABC have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 3 league away games 3 goals have been scored. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (2 so far).

Head 2 Head

Head-to-head totals (for the last ten meetings): Bahia won four games, three matches ended with a draw and ABC has three wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: eight / two

There are 26 state football leagues in Brazil. Because of long distances in Brazil a very competitive football culture developed within each state. Therefore, Brazil remain one of the few countries who still run state championships alongside the national ones. Most of them run from January to May, outside the national season.
