Palmeiras to Win

While Emelec has been great lately in their domestic championship, they started Copa Libertadores with a couple of draws. Meanwhile, Palmeiras won both of their games, with a goal difference of 12:1!

So, we would go with Palmeiras in this game. After all, they are the reigning champions of Copa Libertadores for the second time in a row and they have a great team.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

As we already mentioned, we’ve seen 13 goals in the first two games played by Palmeiras in the group. Meanwhile, we saw two goals in each of Emelec matches so far.

All in all, this game should go over 2.5 total goals, especially since Palmeiras won’t play under any pressure after two great wins and we feel that that could lead to them being even better.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in three of the four games played by Emelec and Palmeiras so far in the group stages and we can see that being the case again in their next game.

In addition to this, both teams scored in four of the last five Emelec games in all competitions, as well as three of last five Palmeiras matches across the board.

With three wins and two draws in the last five games in the Ecuadorian league, Emelec is in good form at the moment. The team is currently third in the standings and they are just four points behind the team in the first place. Meanwhile, Emelec started the new season in Copa Libertadores with a couple of draws, which is far from what was expected of them.


The two-time reigning champions of South America have started their journey towards third straight Copa Libertadores win like true champions – with a couple of wins and a goal difference of 12-1. However, Palmeiras didn’t have the best of starts in Serie A since they only managed to collect five points from the first four games.
