Football Bet of the Day: Flamengo to fly past Bahia
After a good win in North America overnight, Tobias Gourlay's headed south to Brazil
"So far this season, Bahia have lost 3/3 on the road by a combined scoreline of 0-7"
Flamengo v Bahia
In the end, it was Philly that set Philly alight in the MLS last night. The hosts ran out 3-1 winners to give us an odds-against bump that sees us bouncing all the way to Brazil for today's bet.
In the early stages of this season's Campeonato, Flamengo are scoring more frequently than anyone else (13 goals in seven games). Mauricio Barbieri's men are in second place, having taken seven points from nine at Ilha do Urubu. The final score in both wins was 2-0, extending a fine record for the Scarlet and Blacks. Since the start of least season, they've won 12/23 home games, and in 11/12 of those wins the margin of victory was at least two goals.
So far this season, Guto Ferreira's Bahia have lost 3/3 on the road by a combined scoreline of 0-7. In each of those defeats, the margin has been at least two goals. Last season, they went W1-D2-L7 visiting teams that finished in the top half. That record includes a 4-1 defeat in this fixture and we're backing them for another comfortable loss this evening.
