Junior will have the chance to take a big step in their bid to reach the quarter-finals. A defeat against Oriente Petrolero, who has no chance at all, would be a failure and put their qualification in jeopardy.

March Result/Over 2.5 – Junior to Win
The Colombian club goes into the fifth matchday with everything on its side, as all the predictions are in their favour. This is due more to the poor performance of the Refineros than to Junior’s merit. So far the Bolivians have not taken their first points and apparently will not do so this matchday either.
Over 2.5 Goals
In the previous h2h, Junior put the ball in the net three times, this time we think there will be a similar or even higher number o goals. Although, we predict this will be a game with plenty of goals, with the high probability that Junior will trash the Refineros again.
Goal to Be Scored/Both Halves – Yes
Oriente Petrolero has hardly had any scoring chances in their first 3 cup games; they have scored only two goals in the tournament. Moreover, they have not scored on the road yet, so we assume they won’t be able to score this time.
Junior vs Oriente Petrolero preview: A beating awaits
The Tiburón is second in Group H with seven points, one behind leaders Union Santa Fe and level with third-placed Fluminense of Brazil. To qualify, it depends on itself, but it has no margin for error. Winning the two remaining home games will give them a ticket to the last 16 without question.
Now they will have the opportunity to seal their qualification to the next stage against a team they already beat three weeks ago. Since that match in Barranquilla, Junior started a winning streak that they hope to extend at home.
With three defeats in the first half of the group stage, Oriente Petrolero has all but said goodbye to the quarter-finals. They have failed to make a difference to any of their opponents, and have shown themselves to be the weakest team in the group.
In the Bolivian league, they have not lost any of their last four games and are in fourth place. Last weekend, the Bolivians achieved a great 2-1 victory over Atletico Palmaflor. The Bolivian side comes into the game on the back of a 2-1 home defeat to Santa Cruzante last weekend. They are currently fourth in Group A of the local league, three points behind leaders Palmaflor.
