Sporting Cristal vs Universidad Catolica to Draw

These two teams entered their first duel in the first half of group stages without any points and Universidad ended up winning that game with a goal from penalty in the last minutes. So, they are now in a much better position, with a chance to join the race for the top two spots in the group.

However, Sporting Cristal showed in that game that they are a solid team and that they can put up a fight. So, with them now hosting Universidad, we can see the match ending in a draw.

Sporting Cristal vs Universidad Catolica to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect this game to end without a winner, we can also see the two teams being tied at half time, which is often the case in matches ending in a draw.

That being said, their first duel this season in Copa Libertadores wasn’t a tie at half time since Universidad Catolica scored a goal in 47th minute to claim the lead at half time.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We’ve seen both teams score in the first duel between Sporting Cristal and Universidad Catolica in the group, so we can see that happening again in this game.

Furthermore, both teams scored in two of the three games played by Universidad in Copa Libertadores so far, although the same is true for just one of the three Sporting Cristal matches.

Sporting Cristal vs Universidad Catolica preview: A tough game to predict

Sporting Cristal

Unlike their upcoming opponent, Sporting Cristal has just one loss in the last six games in their domestic league. However, the team is only in the tenth spot in the standings in the Peruvian championship right now. Also, Sporting Cristal started the new Copa Libertadores season with a loss to Flamengo at home, which is hardly surprising since Flamengo is the finalist from last season.

Universidad Catolica

With five losses in the last six games in the Chilean league and six losses in the last seven games overall, it’s clear that things are not going that well for Universidad Catolica at the moment. The team actually didn’t do that badly against Talleres de Cordoba in the first round of Copa Libertadores, but they still lost that game 1-0. So, Universidad Catolica desperately needs a win to break off this poor run.
