Fluminense to Win
While Fluminense is still not in the full competitive form since the Brazilian Serie A has yet to start, the team is playing in the regional competition and that was enough for them to eliminate Millonarios in the previous stage.
So, even though Olimpia is already in good form in their domestic championship and Copa Libertadores qualifiers, we expect Fluminense to win this game since Brazilian teams are almost always favourites with a reason.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Fluminense and Olimpia did not meet recently, so we don’t have any h2 data for goals. Still, we feel that over 2.5 total goals is a reasonable bet for this match.
Both teams have gone over 2.5 total goals in one of their two games in Copa Libertadores so far, which doesn’t say much. But we know that Olimpia averaged 3.50 goals per game in their domestic championship so far.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Just like our previous prediction, we don’t have any h2h data for these two teams, but we expect to see both of them score at least once in their next game.
Both teams have scored in one of the two games played by each team in Copa Libertadores, which again doesn’t say much. In the end, we are going with our gut for this prediction.
Fluminense vs Olimpia preview: A very close matchup
Although the start of the new season in Serie A is still a couple of weeks away, Fluminense is participating in the regional Campeonato Carioca and they got into the semi-finals in this competition at the moment. This competition seems enough for the team to keep their form and conditioning in optimal form ahead of the first leg against Olimpia in Copa Libertadores qualifiers.
The team from Asuncion started the new season in Paraguayan league with three wins and two draws, but dealing with Fluminense will be a very tough task for them. After all, Brazilian teams are usually favourites against any other team in South America and Olimpia will have to do their best to eliminate Fluminense and reach the group stages.
