Junior and Libertad to Draw

After being eliminated in the Colombian Apertura semi-finals, Junior didn’t play in a competitive match for a month. However, Libertad played their last competitive game even before them, in the group stages of Copa Sudamericana. So, both teams will enter this game rusty from the break and we expect to see a cautious, careful approach by both teams. With that in mind, our prediction for this match is for Junior and Libertad to draw.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

In the group stages of Copa Sudamericana, Libertad averaged 2.17 goals per game. Meanwhile, Junior averaged exactly 2.00 goals per game in their Copa Libertadores group. Taking these numbers into account, we suggest betting on under 2.5 total goals in their upcoming duel in the Top 16 of Copa Sudamericana.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

While we don’t expect many goals in this game, we do think that we could see both teams scoring. After all, both teams have scored in 83% of Junior matches in Copa Libertadores and in 50% of Libertad games in Copa Sudamericana. With that in mind, betting on both teams to score sounds like a smart move.

Junior vs Libertad preview: A very interesting matchup in the Top 16 stage

The Junior vs Libertad matchup is one of the closest in the Top 16 phase of Copa Sudamericana. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their duel:

Junior

After being eliminated in the Apertura playoff semi-final by Millonarios, Junior didn’t play competitive football for a while – almost a month, to be more precise. So, it remains to be seen how will they do in their upcoming Copa Sudamericana matchup after such a break, but was in solid form before it. They finished their Copa Libertadores group in third place and they have just one loss in their last five games.

Libertad

The team from Asuncion managed to top their Copa Sudamericana group with four wins, a draw, and a loss, to reach the Top 16 phase of the competition. But their last competitive game was also more than a month ago, in the Paraguayan Apertura. Libertad actually won this competition and secured a place in Copa Libertadores for next season. The team also has three wins in their last five matches.
