Universidad Catolica to Win
After eliminating Boliver, another Bolivian team in the last round of Copa Libertadores qualifiers, Universidad Catolica will try to do it again against The Strongest, who eliminated Plaza Colonia.
Both teams did well in those matches, but The Strongest did lose the first leg away from home. So, we expect that to happen again here, even though The Strongest are in better form in their domestic championship.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
We can see this being a high-scoring game even though Universidad Catolica has gone over 2.5 total goals in just two of their last five games in all competitions, which is also true for The Strongest.
Despite this, we expect to see at least three goals when the two teams meet on Friday since both teams play offensively and we are bound to see a lot of chances.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Since we expect at least three goals to be scored in this match, we can also see both teams scoring here, especially since its the first leg so there’s no huge pressure yet.
In addition tot his, both teams scored four of the last five Universidad Catolica matches across the board, while the same thing happened in three of the last five games played by The Strongest in all competitions.
Universidad Catolica vs The Strongest preview: A difficult task for the guests
The team from Quito started the new season in their domestic league with one win, one draw, and one loss, so it seems that they will have to work on getting into form this early into the season. Meanwhile, Universidad Catolica eliminated Bolivar in the second round of Copa Libertadores qualifiers and they have a good chance to reach the group stages against the Strongest, another Bolivian team in their path.
After the first four rounds in Bolivian Primera Division, The Strongest have three wins and one draw. So, the team is clearly in good form right now and that’s a huge plus ahead of the third round of Copa Libertadores qualifiers. The team got to this stage after eliminating Plaza Colonia in the previous round thanks to convincing win at home.
