Plaza Colonia to Win

While the two teams are probably not that far off in terms of quality, Plaza Colonia comes from a much stronger league and that might be their biggest advantage.

After all, Plaza Colonia winning the Torneo Apertura of Uruguay and securing a spot in Copa Libertadores qualifiers was a huge surprise to everyone, so we don’t see why they can’t keep that spirit going now, especially against an opponent like The Strongest.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Both teams have started their respective championships and played three rounds so far. In those three rounds, each of the two teams has gone over 2.5 total goals just once.

Despite this, we can see this game ending with at least three goals being scored. We don’t really have a lot of data to back that up, but we have a strong feeling about it.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we expect this game to end with three or more goals being scored, we also expect both teams to contribute to this final tally. So, our next prediction is for both teams to score.

The main reason why we expect both teams to score lies in the fact that they are evenly matches and progressing to the third stage of qualifiers would be a huge thing for both of them.

Plaza Colonia vs The Strongest preview: Can the guests put up a fight?

Plaza Colonia

When Plaza Colonia won the Uruguayan Apertura last season, it was a huge surprise since no one saw them doing such a feat. The team ultimately lost in the semi-finals of Championship Playoffs to Penarol after penalties, but they secured a spot in Copa Libertadores qualifiers after finishing third in aggregate standings. Plaza Colonia started the new Apertura with four points from the first three rounds.

The Strongest

After an exciting title race against Independiente Petrolero and Always Ready last season, The Strongest finished third at the end, two points behind the eventual champions. Reaching the group stages of Copa Libertadores through qualifiers is a tough task for any Bolivian team, but The Strongest have started the new season in domestic league with a couple of wins and a draw, so they are in good form.
