Athletico Paranaense to Win

The Brazilian team took the 2-1 win in the first leg, which was a bit of a surprise for us and many others. However, Athletico Paranaense is now on a four-game winning streak in all competitions and with the lead from the first leg they seem destined to appear in the final, with all due respect to Penarol. So, our prediction is for Athletico Paranaense to beat Penarol once again.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

We’ve already seen three goals in the first leg of this matchup and we believe that the same can happen in the rematch as well. After all, Penarol will have to play offensively to make up the deficit and that will probably lead to a very open game with plenty of chances on both sides. Hopefully, at least three goals as well, which already happened in three of the previous five h2h duels between these two teams.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we expect to see at least three goals in this duel, we also expect both teams to score in this match. Both teams have scored in three of the last five meetings between these teams, including the first leg played a week ago. Also, both teams have scored in three of the last five Athletico Paranaense matches in all competitions, as well as four of the last five Penarol games across the board.

The second leg of Copa Sudamericana semi-finals will give us the second finalist, so let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of this game:

Athletico Paranaense

After a pretty good start of the season in the Brazilian Serie A, Athletico Paranaense dropped their form and now they are in the 9th spot in the standings, although they are only five points away from the fourth place at the moment. Meanwhile, reaching Copa Sudamericana semi-finals and taking the lead after first leg is pretty impressive for the team, who will have to win this competition for the second time in the club’s history since they already did it in 2018.


After they’ve eliminated Nacional on away goals and Sporting Cristal 4-1 on aggregate, Penarol is one step away from reaching the Copa Sudamericana final. However, they lost the first leg to Athletico Paranaense at home, so it will be a tough task. Overall, the team is in good form with two wins, two draws, and one loss in the last five games in all competitions and they’ve started the Uruguayan Clausura with a couple of wins and a draw.
