These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Emelec to Win

While these two teams are pretty evenly matched and they are in similar forms at the moment, we can see the guests taking all three points in this game.

The reason lies in the fact that we feel that Emelec is a slightly better team overall and that they have more experience in continental competitions compared to Independiente.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

While we expect a close duel between these two teams, we don’t expect this game to end with fewer than three goals being scored by both teams combined.

After all, Independiente went over 2.5 total goals in the last four games that they played, while Emelec has gone over 2.5 total goals in three of their last five matches in all competitions.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we can see this game ending with three goals being scored, we can also see both Independiente and Emelec finding their way to score at least once.

The reason for this lies in the fact that both teams scored in four of the last five Independiente games in all competitions, while the same thing happened in three of the previous five Emelec matches across the board.

Independiente vs Emelec preview: A tough duel to predict

Independiente

The reigning champions of Bolivia have started the new season slowly, with two wins, two draws, and two losses in the first seven games of their domestic league. Still, they are the main favourites to win the title or at least finish at the very top. How good they can be in Copa Libertadores, it remains to be seen.

Emelec

After winning the first stage of Ecuadorian league last season and finishing second in the second stage, Emelec secured a place in the final of the league where they lost to Independiente Valle. So, the vice-champions of Ecuador are currently second in the league in the new season, with three wins, one draw, and two losses in the first six matches.
