Emelec to Win

There are a few reasons why our prediction is for Emelec to win this game. First of all, they are in great form in the Ecuadorian league and the Copa Sudamericana, while Deportes Tolima has only played one game since the start of the month. In addition to this, Emelec is the home team and they can secure the next stage with a win, so we don’t expect them to waste this opportunity.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five Emelec games in all competitions have gone over 2.5 total goals, while the same is true for two of the last five Deportes Tolima games. Meanwhile, the first match between these teams has ended in a 1-1 draw, so it didn’t go over 2.5 total goals. But we expect this game to be a bit different since Deportes Tolima is not really in competitive form and they have to win in this game to retain hope of progressing, so they should be playing offensively from the start.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in the first meeting between Emelec and Deportes Tolima, so we expect that to happen in the rematch as well. After all, both teams have scored in three of the four Deportes Tolima games in the Copa Sudamericana, as well as two of the four Emelec games in the same competition.

Emelec vs Deportes Tolima preview: Will Emelec secure the next phase?

Although Emelec is first in Group G of the Copa Sudamericana, while Deportes Tolima is last, both teams can still progress to the next stage. So, let’s check them out in more detail:

Emelec

It has been a good season for Emelec so far since the team is at the very top in both the domestic league and the Copa Sudamericana group. However, they are not through to the next stage of the Copa Sudamericana yet, but a win against Deportes Tolima would put them there before the last round. In the Ecuadorian league, the team is first after 11 games played and 8 wins, along with two draws and a single loss.

Deportes Tolima

The Colombian team is at the bottom of the group in the Copa Sudamericana with three points after four games and they are unlikely to see the next stage of the competition, although they still have a chance to do so. Meanwhile, the team is awaiting the second leg of the Colombian Apertura after that game was postponed earlier this month. Deportes Tolima already has a huge advantage over Deportivo Cali after a 3-0 win in the first leg.
