Emelec to Win on Handicap (-2)

The guests are without a chance to make it to the next round of Copa Libertadores, while Emelec only needs a win in this game to progress to the next stage, as long as Deportivo Tachira fails to beat Palmeiras in Brazil, which is pretty unlikely to happen.

So, with that in mind, we can see Emelec going hard from the first whistle and we can see them winning this game in a convincing manner, by three or more goals.

Over 3.5 Total Goals

Since we expect Emelec to win this game by three or more goals, we can also see this match going over 3.5 total goals, with the home team doing most of the scoring.

That being said, the first duel between these two teams in the group ended in a 1-1 drew, but Independiente had some very tough losses this season and we can see this being another one.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in the first duel between Emelec and Independiente in the group stages of Copa Libertadores, so we won’t be surprised if that happened again in this game.

After all, both teams scored in four of the five Emelec matches in the group, while the same is true for three of the five games played by Independiente in Copa Libertadores group stages this season.

Emelec vs Independiente preview: Can home team get a crucial win?

Emelec

After losing their last two matches in the Ecuadorian Apertura, Emelec lost all chances to finish first and qualify for the final stage through this part of the Ecuadorian league. Meanwhile, the team is currently third in Copa Libertadores and they’ve secured a spot in Copa Sudamericana Top 16 stage. However, if they beat Independiente and Deportivo Tachira fails to beat Palmeiras, Emelec will qualify for the next phase of Copa Libertadores.

Independiente

The champions of Bolivia are struggling in their domestic league since they are second-last in their group in Apertura. But things aren’t much better for Independiente in Copa Libertadores either since they are certainly going to finish last in their group after winning just one point in five rounds.
