Universidad Catolica to Win
While Bolivar was the favourite in the first leg, they failed to take the home-court advantage and they’ve only managed to draw against Universidad Catolica.
Now the Ecuadorian team has the advantage since they’ll play at home and we can see them winning this game since they are in good form with three wins in the last four games in their championship.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
While we only saw two goals in the first leg, we expect more in the rematch. After all, we’ve seen nine goals in the two games Bolivar played in the previous phase of Copa Libertadores qualifiers.
Meanwhile, Universidad Catolica has gone over in two of their three games in their domestic league, so we can see these two teams combining for three or more goals here.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Since we expect this game to end with three or more goals being scored, it’s logical to expect both teams to score as well, especially since the first leg also ended with both teams scoring.
After all, this match will decide who goes to the third stage of the qualifiers, which means that both teams will try to score a goal that will take them through.
Universidad Catolica vs Bolivar preview: Can the guests surprise us?
The Ecuadorian league has just begun, so Universidad Catolica is not in great competitive form yet. Last season, the team was third in the aggregate standings, but they were ahead of the most decorated Ecuadorian team Barcelona. In any case, the team has a good chance to get to the final stage of Copa Libertadores qualifiers after a draw against Bolivar in the first leg.
The team from La Paz finished last season in fourth place in Bolivian Primera Division, so they had to go play in the first round of qualifiers for Copa Libertadores as well, where they eliminated Deportivo Lara. In addition to this, Bolivar also won three of the first four games in their domestic championship, but they failed to get a win in the first leg and will have to do much better in the rematch to reach the third stage of the qualifiers.
