Independiente Medellin to Win
Independiente started the new season with a win at home over the last season’s Apertura winners Deportes Tolima, so the fans have to be pleased with the first result of the season.
Meanwhile, Patriotas Boyaca lost to Junior and they will be looking for redemption in this game. We don’t expect them to find it since Independiente Medellin won the last four duels against Patriotas. We can see them extending that streak with another win.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
By winning the first game of the season 1-0 Independiente continued in the same vein as they finished last season’s Torneo Finalizacion in which they averaged just 1.45 goals per game. Meanwhile, Patriotas averaged 1.75 goals per game in the same competition.
Still, we expect to see some goals in this game. The reason lies in the fact that four of the last five h2h meetings between Patriotas Boyaca and Independiente Medellin have gone over 2.5 total goals.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams scored in three of the last four head-to-head duels between Patriotas Boyaca and Independiente Medellin, and that bodes well for our prediction.
Also both teams scored in the first game played by Patriotas Boyaca this season, but that’s not true for Independiente Medellin. In any case, we can see both teams scoring in this match.
Patriotas Boyaca vs Independiente Medellin preview: Can Patriotas put up a fight?
The team that finished 17th and 18th in Torneo Apertura and Torneo Finalizacion last season is clearly one of the favourites for relegation this season. Of course, that is the worst-case scenario for Patriotas Boyaca, but they are one of the worst teams in the league and they should struggle to get points on the board. Patriotas Boyaca started the new season with a loss to Junior.
Winning the 2020 Colombian Cup (played last season due to pandemic) secured Independiente Medellin a spot in Copa Sudamericana this season. This was the second time that Independiente won the cup in a row, so the team obviously has enough quality to compete for playoffs in Torneo Apertura and Finalizacion, even though they failed to reach them both last season. Independiente Medellin started the new season with a win over Deportes Tolima.
