Barcelona to Win
As we mentioned before the first leg between these two teams, it’s unusual to see Barcelona in the first round of qualifications for Copa Libertadores because they have played in the semi-finals last season.
That being said, the City Torque and Barcelona played a tough game in the first leg, which ended in a 1-1 draw. We don’t expect the second leg to be as close – our prediction is for Barcelona to win this game and get to the next round.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Although we did not see three goals in the first leg duel between Barcelona and City Torque, we expect the second leg to end with at least three goals being scored.
After all, Barcelona averaged 2.80 goals per game in Ecuadorian league last season, just like City Torque did in Uruguayan league in both stages of the competition combined.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
As we said before, the first leg between these two teams ended with both teams scoring a goal and we can see that same thing happening in the second leg as well.
Furthermore, the two games played this season by City Torque in the Uruguayan league have also ended with both teams scoring, so they obviously play an open style of football.
Barcelona vs City Torque preview: Can Barcelona justify the favourite tag?
After the first leg in which the two teams were tied at the end of the game in Uruguay, Barcelona will now host the second leg of the first round of Copa Libertadores qualifiers against City Torque. The team that reached the semi-finals last season is the absolute favourite and we would be surprised if they don’t manage to get the win here.
After finishing fourth in the Uruguayan Primera Division, City Torque got a chance to compete in the first round of Copa Libertadores qualifiers. The team did well to get a draw in the first leg against Barcelona, the last season’s semi-finalists, but now they have a tough task of doing the same, or winning, away from home.
