Estudiantes to Win or Draw

Even though Fortaleza is the favourite in this game, we can’t see them winning it. First of all, we were surprised to see them get out of their group even and secondly, they are not in the best of forms at the moment since they are currently in the relegation zone in Serie A.

Meanwhile, Estudiantes did disappoint a bit by losing in the quarter-finals of Copa de la Liga Professional, but they were very good until that point and they were top of their group in Copa Libertadores. So, we feel that they can win this game, or at least avoid defeat.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While the knockout stages of Copa Libertadores don’t often bring a lot of goals, we can see this match ending with three or more goals being scored.

After all, Fortaleza did average 3.17 goals per game in the group stages, while Estudiantes averaged 2.17 goals per game in Copa Libertadores this season.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we can see this game going over 2.5 total goals, we can also see both teams scoring at least once in this game, especially since this is only the first leg and the stakes are not that high as of yet.

In addition to this, both teams scored in 67% of all Fortaleza matches in Copa Libertadores so far, although the same thing happened in just 17% of all Estudiantes games in the group stages.

Fortaleza vs Estudiantes preview: A very exciting matchup

Fortaleza

Not many people expected to see Fortaleza at this stage of Copa Libertadores, but they managed to get out of their group by finishing second. However, this team clearly is not fit to be playing at this many fronts since they paid the price of good results in Copa Libertadores with a poor form in Serie A. In fact, Fortaleza is currently in the last place in the standings in the Brazilian league, so their fans are certainly hoping for better results in the future.

Estudiantes

The team from La Plata did well in the regular season of Copa de la Liga Profesional, but they failed to get out of the quarter-finals in the playoffs. After that, Estudiantes started the new season in Liga Profesional with seven points from five matches, so they have been a bit inconsistent ahead of their Copa Libertadores Round of 16 matchup against Fortaleza.
