Independiente to Win
In the h2h of the first day of the South American tournament, Independiente opened the scoring in the first half when they were already playing with one player less due to the early expulsion of Ayrton Costa. In the second half, the Argentinians could not take care of the result and Ceará managed to turn the score around. Now that Independiente will be playing at home, it is likely that they will be the ones to take the victory.
Over 2.5 Goals
The Argentine club will advance to the next round if they can beat Ceará by two goals. Both teams will likely leave spaces in defense to score goals that will take them to the round of 16. So we predict that there will be more than 2 goals in this matchup.
BTTS – Yes
On matchday 1, both teams had a good amount of shots, which ended with 3 goals on the total scoreboard. Once again, we expect both teams to put the ball in the net and give us an exciting Group G final.
Independiente vs Ceara Preview: Tough challenge for Argentines
With the group stage of the Argentine First Division over, where El Rojo failed to qualify for the next round, Independiente has no choice but to focus on the South American tournament. Although Ceara has not lost a single game, Independiente depends on themselves, they only need to defeat their Brazilian rival with a couple of goals over. That way, Independiente would take the lead and access to the next phase.
Its performance in Brasileirao has been different from the one in Copa Sudamericana. In the local league, it is in the relegation zone with 6 points after six matches.
On the contrary, it has got 15 points out of 15 in Copa Sudamericana, it is incredible that its qualification is not secured yet. Losing in its last match could let them out of the competition, and it would be a disappointment after a great performance in the Group phase.
