These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Libertad to Win
Both teams have started the new season in Copa Libertadores with four points from the first two rounds and they seem like the prime candidates to get out of Group B.
However, Libertad has been in amazing form in Paraguayan Clausura as well, where they are currently in the first place. Meanwhile, Athletico Paranaense started the new season in Serie A with two losses in the first three games. So, we can see Libertad taking the win here.
Libertad and Athletico Paranaense to Draw
Although we can see the home team collecting three points from this game, we don’t expect them to have an easy job against a team that won Copa Sudamericana last season.
With that in mind, our next prediction is for Libertad and Athletico Paranaense to draw at half time since we expect the game to be decided in the second half.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
As we said already, we can see the game being decided in the second half and most likely by one goal. So, we don’t expect to see a lot of foals in this game.
After all, three of the four games played by Libertad and Athletico Paranaense in the first two rounds of Copa Libertadores group stages have gone under 2.5 total goals and we can see that being the case here as well.
Libertad vs Athletico Paranaense preview: A very close and tough duel

In addition to this, Libertad is leading the league in Paraguayan Apertura as well, where they have four wins, one draw, and one loss in the last six games.
After winning Copa Sudamericana last season for the second time in their history, Athletico Paranaense seems ready to fight for a good result in Copa Libertadores this season.
