If you are not certain what is the right bet for the Athletico Paranaense vs Estudiantes duel, check our top betting tips for this game:

Athletico Paranaense to Win

Two teams that haven’t been in this stage of Copa Libertadores often in recent years will now meet each other and one of them will play in the semi-finals. The home team is in better form since they are fourth in Serie A right now, while Estudiantes is in the bottom half of the standings in their domestic championship.

In addition to this, Athletico Paranaense won Copa Sudamericana last season, which can prove to be a crucial experience in this matchup. Lastly, Athletico will host the game and we can see them taking the advantage ahead of the rematch.

Athletico Paranaense and Estudiantes to Draw at Half Time

Although we expect Athletico to beat Estudiantes, we don’t see them having an easy job, despite the fact that Estudiantes is not in a great form at the moment.

After all, Estudiantes has been impressive this season in Copa Libertadores and we can see them putting a good fight here. With that in mind, our next prediction is for the two teams to draw at half time.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

These two teams didn’t meet in recent years, so we don’t have any h2h data to draw conclusions from. Still, based on other stats, we don’t see this being a high-scoring affair, especially not in this stage of the competition.

So far in Copa Libertadores, Athletico Paranaense averaged 2.50 goals per game, while Estudiantes averaged 2.25 goals per game. So, we expect this game to go under 2.5 total goals.

Athletico Paranaense vs Estudiantes preview: Can Estudiantes avoid defeat?

Athletico Paranaense

After twenty rounds in Brazilian Serie A, Athletico Paranaense is fourth in the standings, eight points behind Palmeiras at the top. The team has three wins, one draw, and two losses in the last six games in the league, so they’ve been a bit inconsistent lately. Still, Athletico is having a great season so far since they are also in quarter-finals of Copa do Brasil and Copa Libertadores.

Estudiantes

The team from La Plata had a solid first half of the season since they reached they playoffs in Copa de la Liga Profesional, but the team hasn’t been doing well in Liga Profesional so far, with just twelve points from eleven games. On the bright side, Estudiantes has a chance to reach the semifinals of Copa Libertadores, which is not something their fans hoped for before the season started.
