Penarol to Win

The home team has been in great form recently since they are on a four-game winning streak, including their win in the first leg of the matchup against Sporting Cristal. While that win gives them a bit of a cushion for the rematch, we still expect them to go out with the intention of winning the game and our prediction is for Penarol to win the game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

We’ve seen thirteen goals in the previous three head-to-head duels between Penarol and Sporting Cristal, two of which have gone over 2.5 total goals. With that in mind, our prediction for their upcoming duel is to also go over 2.5 total goals. We’ve seen the first match and both teams had plenty of chances to score, so we expect another high-scoring game here.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

All three most recent duels between Penarol and Sporting Cristal have ended with both teams scoring, so we expect to see goals in both nets in their upcoming duel as well. After all, Sporting Cristal will have to attack from the start to try and overcome the deficit from the first leg, which will also open a lot of space for Penarol.

Penarol vs Sporting Cristal preview: Can Penarol hold on to their advantage?

After the first leg, the home team has a nice advantage, but the guests will not give up so easily. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the teams ahead of the second leg:

Penarol

The team from Montevideo is on a roll at the moment since they’ve won four straight games in all competitions. In the Uruguayan Apertura, Penarol has five wins, two draws and one loss in the last eight games. Also, they’ve only lost one match in the 14 rounds of the competition, but they are only third in the standings and don’t have a chance of reaching the top with one game left to play. On the bright side, Penarol is close to reaching the semi-finals of Copa Sudamericana after their 3-1 win over Sporting Cristal in the first leg.

Sporting Cristal

After winning the Peruvian Apertura by beating Universidad San Martin in the final, Sporting Cristal entered the Clausura with a lot of confidence. However, they didn’t really start the competition that well since they’ve got two wins, two draws, and a loss in the first five matches, which is only enough for the 5th place in the standings.
