Estudiantes de Merida to Win

The new season in the Venezuelan Primera Division has just started and both teams have only played two games so far. Estudiantes lost both, while Metropolitanos has one win and one loss.

However, our prediction is for Estudiantes de Merida to win this match since they beat Metropolitanos in four of their last five h2h duels and we can see that happening again on Tuesday.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five h2h duels between Estudiantes de Merida and Metropolitanos have gone over 2.5 total goals and we expect the same to happen in their next game.

That being said, only one of the four matches played by these two teams combined in the new season of Primera Division has gone over 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in two of the last four h2h meetings between Estudiantes de Merida and Metropolitanos, so this came could go either way based on that.

However, we have a feeling that we will see both teams score, especially since we expect the game to go over 2.5 total goals as well.

Estudiantes de Merida vs Metropolitanos preview: An interesting first leg

Estudiantes de Merida

Last season was a solid one for Estudiantes de Merida since the team managed to reach Fase Final A of the Venezuelan championship, which is a sort of a playoff group for top teams. Granted, Estudiantes finished the group in last place, but that was enough to secure them a spot in the Copa Sudamericana qualifiers. Meanwhile, the team started the new Venezuelan championship with a couple of losses.


The team from Caracas failed to get to the Fase Final A last season, but they were first in Fase Final B and that is how they got their spot in the qualifiers for Copa Sudamericana this season. In any case, Metropolitanos started the new season in Venezuelan Primera Division with one win and one loss.
