Emelec to Win

We were surprised to see that Deportes Tolima has been made the favourite by the bookies since Emelec is obviously in much better form. That being said, Deportes Tolima enters this game after a 3-0 win in the quarter-finals of their domestic league, which probably boosted their confidence significantly. Still, Emelec has been consistently good this season, both in their domestic league and in Copa Sudamericana, so we would rather back them up in this match.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

This prediction is mostly based on the results of these teams in Copa Sudamericana since Deportes Tolima wasn’t that efficient lately in the Columbian league. In fact, the team has gone over 2.5 total goals just twice in the last eight league games, but they average 2.5 goals per game in Copa Sudamericana after the first two rounds. Meanwhile, Emelec has gone over 2.5 total goals in both of their Copa Sudamericana games and they’ve done the same in three of their last five league games.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in three of the four matches that these teams have played in the first two rounds of the Copa Sudamericana, so we expect this trend to continue in their h2h duel. Furthermore, both teams have scored in 70% of Emelec’s league games. That being said, both teams have scored in just 37% of Deportes Tolima league games, but we still expect that outcome in this match.

Deportes Tolima vs Emelec preview: Can Deportes keep the hopes of progressing alive?

The home team has one loss and draw each in the first two rounds of the Copa Sudamericana, so they really need to get some points against Emelec, who started the competition with two wins. So, let’s check these teams out in more detail.

Deportes Tolima

The season in Columbia is well on the way – the Apertura stage of the league is already done and the top eight teams have started playing in the knockout stages. One of them is Deportes Tolima, who finished sixth, but they’ve got a big advantage after beating Deportivo Cali 3-0 in the first leg of the quarter-finals. This was a bit of a surprise since Deportes was in poor form in the league with just one win in their last seven matches to finish the Apertura. Furthermore, they have failed to win in the first two rounds of the Copa Sudamericana as well.

Emelec

The team from Ecuador has had a great start to the season. They are on top of the standings in their domestic league after 10 games, after winning seven, drawing twice and losing just one game. In the Copa Sudamericana they’ve also started great, with two wins in the first two rounds and a 5:1 goal difference. A win in the upcoming duel with Deportes would basically secure them a spot in the next stage of the competition.
