America de Cali and Athletico Paranaense to Draw

The home team hasn’t played an official game in over a month, while the guests are doing very well in the Brazilian league. While this may sound like a good reason to bet on Athletico Paranaense, our prediction for this match is a draw. First of all, America de Cali is a good team and they’ll be playing in front of their fans. Secondly, Athletico Paranaense had a very congested schedule in the past couple of weeks and they’ve also had a bit of a dip in form, making a draw the most likely outcome in this game.

America de Cali and Athletico Paranaense to Draw at Half Time

Most of the games that end in a draw are also even at half time, which is the main reason why we suggest betting on these two teams to draw at half time. In addition to this, four of the six matches America de Cali played in Copa Libertadores were equal at half times, while the same is true for three of the six Copa Sudamericana games played by Athletico Paranaense.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

These two teams haven’t played against each other in recent years, so we don’t have any head-to-head matches to serve as a reference for our betting predictions. However, America de Cali averaged 2.33 goals per game in the Copa Libertadores group stages, while Athletico Paranaense averaged just 1.5 goals per game in their Copa Sudamericana group. So, betting on under 2.5 total goals seems like the safest course of action here.

America de Cali vs Athletico Paranaense preview: A very close matchup

With both teams having similar teams in terms of quality, their matchup is one of the tightest in the Top 16 phase of Copa Sudamericana. So, let’s check the teams out in more detail:

America de Cali

While they await the start of the Colombian Clausura, America de Cali will first get to play the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana Top 16 phase. They secured a spot here by finishing third in their Copa Libertadores group, but they did so by collecting just four points from the six matches in the group. Their duel against Athletico Paranaense will be their first official match in over a month.
