If you need some help to choose the best bet for Estudiantes vs Fortaleza, take a look at our top betting picks for this duel:

Estudiantes to Win

The team from La Plata is far from the form they had in the first half of the season and they enter this game after failing to win their last four matches. However, Fortaleza is also struggling since they are currently last in Serie A.

On top of that, Estudiantes has a good result from the first leg, which ended in a draw, so we can see them winning this match and securing a place in the quarter-finals of Copa Libertadores.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While we didn’t see three or more goals in the first leg between these two teams, which ended in a 1-1 draw, we can see this game going over 2.5 total goals.

The reason lies in the fact that Fortaleza averaged 3.00 goals per game so far in the competition. And while Estudiantes averaged just 2.14 goals per game in Copa Libertadores this season, they were one of the most efficient teams in the first half of the season in Argentinian league.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We saw both teams score in the first leg between Estudiantes and Fortaleza and we see no reasons why the second leg can’t follow the same pattern as well.

Furthermore, both teams scored in 71% of all Fortaleza matches in Copa Libertadores until now, although the same is true for just 29% of all Estudiantes games in the competition this season.

Estudiantes

Even though things haven’t been great for Estudiantes after the first half of the season in Argentina, ever since they lost in the Copa de la Liga Profesional quarter-finals, On the bright side, Estudiantes enters the second leg of Copa Libertadores Round of 16 against Fortaleza with a draw from the first leg, which gives them an advantage since they are hosting the second leg.

Fortaleza
