The Right Picks and Betting Tips for El Nacional vs Independiente Medellin

El Nacional to Win

The host proved to be very well prepared for this year’s challenges. Although their previous opponents did not show much resistance, the Ecuadorian team’s great performance should be highlighted.

On the other hand, the Colombian team needs to make many adjustments to start winning. Taking into account the El Nacional vs Independiente Medellin line ups, we think The host will win the first match.

Over 2.5 Goals

After seeing 9 goals in the first series for the home team, it will not be unusual to see a considerable amount of goals in the first leg, in fact 5 of their last 7 games ended with more than 2.5 goals. Our El Nacional vs Independiente Medellin prediction is that we will see at least 3 goals or even more.

BTTS

One of the disadvantages that El Nacional has, is that they tend to get careless, and leave some spaces in defence, that’s why they conceded goals in the previous two games, so Independiente Medellin will have options to score. The Ecuadorian team balances this problem, scoring a lot of goals, so we will probably see BTTS. 

El Nacional vs Independiente Medellin Preview: How Many Goals This Time?

El Nacional

The previous round was a piece of cake for the Ecuadorian team, as they defeated Nacional Potosi 6-1 in Bolivia, and 3-1 in the return leg. Those have been El Nacional’s only two official matches, as the Ecuadorian league has yet to kick off.

The 9 goals scored in the first round are proof of the great offensive power that the Ecuadorian team possesses. El Nacional’s last opponent was a bit weak, the Ecuadorian team has to prove that they can play well against any team.

Independiente Medellin

The Colombian first division started a little earlier than other South American leagues, that’s why 5 rounds have already been played and The DIM has not won a single game. So far, the Colombian team has accumulated only two points, after two draws and three defeats.

The team coached by David Gonzalez will try to turn the page by getting a good result in their visit to Ecuador, and qualify for the Copa Libertadores, which would lessen the disappointment of the fans for the bad start of the season.
