Libertad to Win

The Paraguayan team has already beaten Newell’s Old Boys once in the group and we don’t see why they wouldn’t be able to do it again since they will be playing at home this time. Furthermore, Libertad is in great form in the domestic league as well with four wins in the last five games, while Newell’s have only won two of their thirteen games in the Argentinian league so far.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The game between these two teams in the first half of the group stages of the Copa Sudamericana has gone over 2.5 total goals, so we expect the same to happen in this game as well. Our prediction is also supported by the teams’ records in the domestic leagues since Newell’s Old Boys have gone over 2.5 total goals in five of their last eight games, while Libertad has done the same in four of their last eight games in the league.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

This is similar to our previous prediction and it’s also supported by the first game that these two teams have played that ended 2-1. Furthermore, both teams have scored in five of the last eight Newell’s Old Boys games in Argentina, as well as five of the last eight games by Libertad in the Paraguayan league.

Libertad vs Newell’s Old Boys preview: Can Libertad win again?

The two teams are within two points of each other in Group F of the Copa Sudamericana and this match will either separate them further or make things in the group much more complicated. So, let’s take a closer look at the teams:

Libertad

The team from Asuncion is dominating the Paraguayan league after 15 games and they are sitting comfortably at the top with 32 points. They are also on a streak of five games without a loss in that competition, with four wins in those five matches. In the Copa Sudamericana, Libertad has a good chance to take a crucial step towards progression with another win over Newell’s Old Boys in the upcoming duel.

Newell’s Old Boys

This season is not going well for Newell’s Old Boys, at all. The team is at the very bottom of the Argentinian Liga Professional with just eleven points from the first thirteen games. With that in mind, it is surprising that Newell’s is not doing that bad in the Copa Sudamericana with four points in the first three matches, but their hopes of progression would seriously be shattered if they lost another game to Libertad since they are already two points ahead of them.
