Bahia will have its first challenge in the 2024 season this Sunday (4), when it will receive a visit from Sport in a regional classic that has already decided editions of the Copa do Nordeste won by Tricolor.

In a match full of tradition, and against the most qualified opponent of the year so far, coach Rogério Ceni understands that his team will need a higher level of performance to maintain the sequence of victories.

On the Sport side, this will be the second classic of the year. Before, the red and black team had already beaten their great rival, Santa Cruz, for the Pernambuco Championship.

By the way, the team led by Argentine coach Mariano Soso is the leader of the State, with five wins and one defeat.

Leão da Ilha scored 11 goals and conceded five in their first games of the year. Of these, four goals were conceded in the 4-2 defeat to Retrôat home.

Seeking to return to the national elite in 2024, the Pernambuco board assembled a squad full of well-known names from the national scene. Some of them veterans.

The goalkeeper Dennis (36 years old), defender Luciano Castan (34 years old), the full-back Roberto Rosales (34 years old), the steering wheel Fabinho (37 years old), midfielders Lucas Lima (33 years old) and Alan Ruiz (30 years old) and the attackers Arthur Caike (31 years), Roberto (30 years) and Christian Ortiz (31 years old) form the experienced backbone of the team.

In addition to them, Sport signed athletes with a Series B profile for the season, including strikers Romarinho, Pablo Dyego and Gustavo Coutinho – the latter started the year with two goals and one assist.

Bahia and Sport will face each other this Sunday (4), at 4pm, at Arena Fonte Nova.
