Emelec to Win at Half Time and Full Time
The first round of Copa Libertadores was a disastrous one for the guests since they lost to Palmeiras 4-0 at home. Meanwhile, Emelec drew with Independiente Petrolero.
That being said, the two teams are in similar forms in their domestic championships. Still, with Emelec hosting this game, we can see them winning it and we can see them doing it after leading at half time.
Emelec to Win with Handicap (-1)
Since we expect Emelec to win this game after leading at half time, we also expect them to win the game in a convincing manner, by two or more goals.
After all, Deportivo Tachira conceded four goals in the first round and failed to score in the process. Granted, it was against the reigning champions of South America, but it still showed that the team has many weaknesses.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
These two teams have met twice before and neither of those matches has gone over 2.5 total goals, but that was more than five years ago and it doesn’t really tell us anything about the present.
In fact, both teams have the highest averages of goals per game in their respective leagues – Emelec averaged 3.00 goals per game so far, Deportivo Tachira 2.86. So, we expect to see at least three goals in this game.
