Independiente to Win with Handicap (-2)

The home team only needs a point to progress to the next stage of the Copa Sudamericana, but they will certainly win this game as convincingly as they can to avoid any late-game surprise. The first match between these two teams ended in a 3-1 Independiente win but we are comfortable in our prediction that they will win this game by at least three goals. After all, Guabira has scored just one goal in the previous five Copa Sudamericana matches while conceding seventeen.

Over 3.5 Total Goals

As we already said, the first meeting between these two teams has gone over 3.5 total goals and we don’t see why this can’t happen again. Guabira averages 3.6 goals per game in Copa Sudamericana, although the vast majority of those goals has ended in their own net. In addition to this, Independiente averages exactly three goals per game in Copa Sudamericana, so we are obviously looking at a high scoring match.

Both Teams to Score – No

It may seem counterintuitive to suggest that we will see more than 3.5 total goals in this game while also predicting that we won’t be seeing both teams score. However, Guabira has only scored once in the previous five games in this competition and while that sole goal did come against Independiente, Guabira’s inability to score should prove true once again in this match.

Independiente vs Guabira preview: The home team looking for a point to progress

It’s pretty clear what we can expect in this game since the home team needs at least a point to secure a place in the next phase of the Copa Sudamericana, while the guests are only hoping to concede as few goals as possible. Still, let’s take a closer look at both teams.

Independiente

The Argentinian team is close to reaching the next stage of the Copa Sudamericana. They are currently at the top of their group and only need to get one point against arguably the worst team in the entire group stages of the competition to advance. In the previous five games, Independiente has won three times and has two draws as well. In their domestic league, Independiente is currently in eighth place with twenty points from the first thirteen games.

Guabira

The Copa Sudamericana berth for Guabira has been absolutely gut-wrenching since the team has lost all five games in Group B. Furthermore, they’ve only scored once while conceding seventeen goals. So, it’s safe to say that Guabira won’t be remembering their appearance in this competition fondly. Meanwhile, the team has started the season in the Bolivian league rather well, with four wins and three losses in the first seven games.
