Junior and Fluminense to Draw

Although Fluminense seems to be in a bit better form right now, and they’ve stated the Copa Libertadores season better than Junior, the Colombian team is also in good form and they’ve been made favourites by the bookies. Taking all of this into account, our prediction for this match is a draw since the teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Both of these teams have gone under 2.5 total goals in one of their first two matches in the Group D of the Copa Libertadores, while they’ve also been playing cautions football in their domestic championships. For example, Junior has been averaging just 1.9 goals per game in the Colombian league this season, while Fluminense averaged 2.55 goals per match in the Brazilian Serie A last season. So, under 2.5 total goals seems like a good bet.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

It might seem counterintuitive to suggest under 2.5 total goals and both teams to score, but we have a feeling that this match could end up in a 1-1 draw. After all, both teams have scored in all four games that Junior and Fluminense played this season in Copa Libertadores, so we expect this trend to continue for another game.

Junior vs Fluminense preview: An important match for both teams

The Copa Libertadores berth for Junior is already a solid achievement but the team certainly wants more and they’ll have to get a good result against Fluminense to remain in contention for the next stage. Learn more about these teams from our preview:

Junior

The Colombian team reached the group stages of the Copa Libertadores by eliminating Caracas and Bolivar in qualifications, and they’ve started the competition with a loss to River Plate and a draw with Santa Fe. In the Colombian league, the team finished 6th in Apertura, qualifying for the knockout phase and eliminating Santa Fe in the quarter-finals. So, they are in solid form and can hope to get some points in the upcoming Fluminense duel.

Fluminense

After finishing 5th in the Brazilian Serie A last season, Fluminense started the 2021 edition of the Copa Libertadores with one win and one draw, which puts them in the shared top-spot position with River Plate after two rounds. The team is also competing in Campeonato Carioca before the start of the new season in Brazil and they’ve reached the semi-finals of the competition where they drew with Portuguesa in the first leg.
