How to watch Flamengo vs Bahia on US TV

After the euphoria of Jorge Jesus' trophy-laden year at the club, Flamengo have come back down to earth with a bump since the Portuguese's exit.

Successor Dom Torrent failed to win over fans and was sacked after just four months due to a series of humbling defeats both at home and in the Copa Libertadores. 

Rogerio Ceni was called in to steady the ship, and while the ex-Sao Paulo goalkeeper led the Libertadores out of the competition he has fared better in Serie A. 

Flamengo have now racked up three consecutive league victories and can move within two points of leaders Sao Paulo if they win both games in hand. 

Bahia, meanwhile, have struggled all season and sit perilously close to relegation, making a positive result at the Maracana essential for the visitors.

Flamengo vs Bahia is available to stream in the US on Fanatiz, where you can sign up for a 7-day free trial.

Brasileirao 2020 is exclusive to Fanatiz outside Brazil and the Balkans.

Flamengo vs Bahia team news and preview

Flamengo waltzed to a convincing 4-1 victory over Santos last Sunday, and coach Ceni is likely to name an unchanged team for this latest Serie A test. 

Ceni is also boosted by the return of veteran playmaker Diego, who has been unavailable for several weeks due to injury. 

Bahia, meanwhile, are likely to make several alterations to the team that went out of the Copa Sudamericana at the hands of Defensa y Justicia last week. 

Colombian Juan Pablo Ramirez is set to start in attack after coming off the bench in that clash, while coach Luiz Menezes must choose between Ernando or Anderson Martins in the middle of defence.
