Estudiantes to Win with Handicap (-1)

While Audax Italiano claimed a surprising victory in the first leg, we expect Estudiantes to get their revenge in the second leg. After all, the team from La Plata is in great form, with four wins in the first four rounds of Copa de la Liga Profesional.

So, there is no doubt in our mind that Estudiantes will win this match and we expect them to do it in a convincing fashion, by two goals or more.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

We did see just one goal in the first duel between Estudiantes and Audax Italiano, but we expect to see a different outcome in their second leg and at least three goals.

The reason is simple – Estudiantes went over 2.5 total goals in all four games they played this season in Argentina, while Audax Italiano did the same in three of their four matches in their domestic league in the new season.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

As we said, we only saw one goal in the first leg between Estudiantes and Audax Italiano, so we clearly didn’t see both teams score in this match either.

However, we can see both teams scoring in the next game since both teams scored in all four Estudiantes games in Copa de la Liga Profesional so far, as well as three of the four matches Audax Italiano played in the Chilean league.

Estudiantes vs Audax Italiano preview: Can the guests defend the advantage?


After finishing sixth in the aggregate standings in Argentinian Primera Division, Estudiantes barely managed to secure their spot in Copa Libertadores qualifiers. However, the team from La Plata is in good position right now since they started the new season in great form, with four wins in the first four rounds of Copa de la Liga Profesional, although they did lose to Audax Italiano in the first leg.

Audax Italiano

The team from Santiago de Chile finished last season in the Chilean league in third place in the standings, taking the last spot for Copa Libertadores qualifiers. The team is not among the favourites to make it to group stages, but they did get a win over the favoured Estudiantes in the first round.
