Junior to Win

On matchday 1, the two teams met in a duel with some interesting facts that ended in a 1-1 draw. On that occasion, the Colombian team did not have a single shot on goal, but they did have a double from Federico Vera, who opened the scoring in the 2nd minute, but 4 minutes later he would score his own goal.

After 5 rounds, we see a more solid Junior who have won all their home games in this edition of the Copa Sudamericana, so we expect them to do the same on this occasion..

Under 2.5 Goals

In Union matches, the final score is usually below 3 goals on aggregate, and the same used to happen in Junior’s matches. With the few goal chances in the previous h2h, we think it is more likely to be a low-score game.


For the away team there is no other solution than to go for the win in this match, however they will face a team whose main objective will be not to concede goals, as a draw could be enough for them. In the previous h2h, the Argentinian team hardly had any shots on goal, so it is likely that they will not score in Colombia.

Junior vs Union Preview: A battle for the lead


Junior de Barranquilla have a new final after a more than positive result against Oriente Petrolero at home. A 2-0 win against the Bolivians, which could have been bigger, and if it had been, it would have been even more consolidated. The road ahead for Juan Cruz Real’s side is simple: win or draw against Union de Santa Fe. With the win, Junior de Barranquilla would reach 13 points and could not be overtaken by any of the teams in Group H.


Tatenge have a chance to qualify in Barranquilla, but the match will be evenly matched, perhaps with a little bit of favouritism for the Colombian team, who have more experienced players with international experience on their roster. El Tatengue will be without experienced Uruguayan defender Diego Polenta, who injured his right knee against Fluminense.
