Santos to Win

If this match was being played a couple of months ago, we would probably consider Libertad to be the favourite. But the Paraguayan team hasn’t been in the best form lately, and even though Santos has been inconsistent the entire season, they are a good team and they are playing at home. So, our prediction is for Santos to win this game.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the four matches played in the last round of Copa Sudamericana by Santos and Libertad have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we expect to see the same in this game. In addition to this, Santos is averaging 2.13 goals per game in the Brazilian league this season, while Libertad started their domestic Clausura with an average of 1.25 goals per game in the first four rounds.

Both Teams to Score – No

Both teams have scored in half of the matches that these two teams have played in the previous round of Copa Libertadores, so this game could go either way. However, we don’t expect to see many goals in this math and so we don’t expect both teams to score in the game either, especially since this only happened in just 33% of all Santos matches in the Brazilian league.

Santos vs Libertad preview: Can Santos secure a good result in the first leg?

Neither of these two teams is playing great football at the moment, but we still expect to see an interesting match between them. So, let’s take a closer look at the teams now:

Santos

Santos has been pretty inconsistent this season in Serie A, but they are still doing well since they are in the 8th place in the standings at the moment. However, they only have 20 points from the first 15 games in the league, so they are pretty far off from the very top. On the bright side, Santos reached the quarter finals in both Copa do Brasil and Copa Sudamericana, so Santos still has a chance to win at least one trophy this season.

Libertad

The team from Asuncion has already secured a spot in the next edition of Copa Libertadores after winning the Paraguayan Torneo Apertura with five points ahead of Olimpia. That being said, the team started the Clausura part of the league with three draws and a loss, so they are not in the best form at the moment.
