Libertad to Win

While Libertad is not in the best form and we expected Santos to win in the first game, we have a feeling that the Paraguayan team has what it takes to take the win in the second leg. Our prediction is mostly based on our gut feeling and the fact that Libertad is playing at home, as well as not being overly impressed by Santos so far in the season.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the four game played in the previous round of Copa Sudamericana by Libertad and Santos have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we expect to see the same in this match, despite the fact that we’ve seen three goals in the first leg. After all, Santos is averaging 2.13 goals per game in Serie A this season, while Libertad started the Paraguayan Clausura with an average of 2.2 goals per game in the first five rounds.

Both Teams to Score – No

We’ve seen both teams score in the first leg, but we don’t expect to see the same in the rematch. The reason lies in the fact that these two teams are not in the best form, especially Libertad. With that in mind, and taking the importance of the match into account, we can see both teams being extremely cautious not to concede.

Libertad vs Santos preview: Can Santos defend the advantage from the first leg?

The narrow lead from the first leg will give the guests a bit of a cushion, but this matchup is far from over still. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their duel.

Libertad

The team from Asuncion already secured their spot in the Copa Libertadores for next season after winning Torneo Apertura with five points more than Olimpia. On the other hand, Libertad started the Paraguayan Clausura with four draws and a loss, so they are clearly struggling at the moment since they’ve also lost the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana quarter-finals.

Santos

The team from Santos has been very inconsistent this season in Serie A since they only have 21 points from the first 16 matches in the league. On the bright side, they are doing very well in other competitions since they have already reached the quarter finals of Copa do Brasil and they are very close to reach the semi-finals of Copa Sudamericana after the first-leg win over Libertad.
