Athletico Paranaense to Win

While Athletico Paranaense is not in the best for in the Brazilian league at this time since they’ve failed to win in their last three matches in Serie A, they are still fifth in the standings. And they enter the second leg against America de Cali with a 2-0 advantage from the first leg, so our prediction for this match is for Athletico Paranaense to win this game.

Athletico Paranaense and America de Cali to Draw at Half Time

We expect Athletico Paranaense to win this game in the end, but we don’t expect them to have an easy job, especially with their current form. With that in mind, our next prediction is for these two teams to draw at half time since we expect to see a careful approach from both teams. Yes, America de Cali is two goals down, but they will probably try to hold the forth down in the first half and they go on attack in the second. Meanwhile, Athletico has a result that would lead them to the Copa Sudamericana quarter-finals, so they won’t rush into anything.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

As we mentioned in our preview before the first leg, Athletico Paranaense averaged 1.5 goals per game in the group stages of Copa Sudamericana, while America de Cali averaged 2.33 goals per game in their Copa Libertadores group. Taking that into account, and the result in the first leg, we expect this game to go under 2.5 total goals as well.

Athletico Paranaense vs America de Cali preview: Who will go to the quarter-finals?

The home team won the first leg, but the matchup is far from over. With that in mind, let’s take a more detailed look at both teams ahead of the second leg:

Athletico Paranaense

After reaching the Top 16 phase of Copa Sudamericana by topping their group without a loss, Athletico Paranaense did great in the first leg against America de Cali with a 2-0 away win. Now they are in good position ahead of the second leg and they certainly expect to make it to the quarter-finals. In addition to this, the team is doing great in Serie A since they are currently in the fifth spot in the standings, with six wins, two draws, and three losses. However, they failed to win in the last three matches in Serie A.

America de Cali

It seems that the month-long break from competitive football didn’t sit well with America de Cali since they’ve lost the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana Top 16 phase to Athletico Paranaense, at home. However, the new season in Colombian Clausura has started over the weekend, and America did well in the first round by beating Junior 3-1 in front of their fans. Now they have a tough task ahead of them – overcoming the two-goal deficit to reach the quarter-finals of Copa Sudamericana.
