Libertad to Win

The first-leg, 4-3 win gives Libertad a great chance of reaching the Copa Sudamericana quarter-finals even if they fail to beat Junior in the second leg, but we believe that the Paraguayan team won’t risk anything and that they will try to get another win to confirm their progression. So, our prediction for this match is for Libertad to beat Junior once again.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

After we’ve seen seven goals in the first match between these two teams, it would be foolish to expect a low-scoring match in the second leg. With that in mind, our next prediction is for the game to go over 2.5 total goals, even though neither of these two teams has averaged more than 2.5 goals per game in the group stages.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

In the group stages of Copa Sudamericana and Copa Libertadores, both teams have scored in 50% of all Libertad matches and in 83% of all Junior matches. And after the result in the first leg in which both teams have scored multiple times, we expect to see something similar in the second leg.

Libertad vs Junior preview: Can we see another exciting duel between these teams?

After the exciting duel between in the first meeting between Libertad and Junior that ended with seven goals scored, we expect see another similar game in the rematch. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at both teams:

Libertad

This Libertad team was first in their Copa Sudamericana group with four wins, a draw, and a loss, and they’ve won the first leg of the Top 16 phase of the competition as well to put themselves in a great position to reach the quarter-finals. In the meantime, the team started the Paraguayan Clausura with a scoreless draw at home with Guairena, which is not the best start for a team that won the Paraguayan Apertura.

Junior

The team from Barranquilla reached the semi-finals of the Colombian Apertura, where they were eliminated by Millonarios. After more than a month without competitive football, Junior got back at it with two losses – one to Libertad in Copa Sudamericana and another in the first round of Clausura against America de Cali. So, the team will be hoping to do better in their upcoming rematch against Libertad in Asuncion.
