Melgar to Win

While Cienciano has nine points from six games in the Peruvian Liga 1, Melgar has seven points from five games. So, both teams are in similar forms right now.

Also, the first leg between these two teams ended in a 1-1 draw, so the teams go into the second leg tied. Still, Melgar has a slight advantage since they will host the second leg and that’s also the main reason why we expect them to win the game.

Melgar and Cienciano to Draw at Half Time

While we can see Melgar winning this game, we don’t see them having an easy job. In fact, we expect a very tight game that will likely be decided in the second half and thus our prediction is draw at half time.

However, none of the last five h2h meetings between Melgar and Cienciano have been tied at half time, so take this with a grain of salt, but we still expect a draw at half time.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in three of the last five h2h duels between Melgar and Cienciano and we can see that being the case once again on Wednesday.

Furthermore, both teams scored in 67% of games played by Cienciano in their domestic championship so far, while the same is true for 40% of Melgar matches in the league this season.
