Fortaleza to Win
After a fantastic season in which they surprisingly secured a spot in the Copa Libertadores group stages, Fortaleza is now in good form as well after winning their regional championship Copa de Nordeste.
However, Colo Colo is also doing very well since they are first in the Chilean league standings at the moment. So, we expect a close game, but we would give the advantage to Fortaleza simply because they are playing at home.
Fortaleza and Colo Colo to Draw at Half Time
As we mentioned already, we expect this to be a close match. And while we can see Fortaleza winning the game and claiming all three points, we don’t expect them to have an easy job.
With that in mind, we can see the match being decided in the second half and the two teams ending the first half at even terms. So, our next prediction is for Fortaleza and Colo Colo to draw at half time.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
Since we expect a close game between Fortaleza and Colo Colo, we can see the teams entering the match with a lot of caution and focus on not conceding.
So, we don’t see this game ending with many goals being scored, not more than two. After all, Fortaleza went under 2.5 total goals in four of their last five matches, while Colo Colo did the same in two of their previous five games.
Fortaleza vs Colo Colo preview: A very interesting duel in Group F
After nearly getting relegated the season before last, Fortaleza surprised everyone by finishing the last season in Serie A in the fourth place in the standings, only behind Atletico Mineiro, Palmeiras, and Flamengo. Thanks to this, they will now play in Copa Libertadores group stages and their fans are certainly hoping for a successful campaign in this new setting.
The team from Santiago is the vice-champion of Chile for last season and they’ve kept that form going into the new season since they are currently first in the standings after eight rounds in the Chilean league. In those eight games, Colo Colo has five wins, two draws, and one loss, so they are clearly in great form.
