Sporting Cristal to Win

The home team enters this game while on a four-game winning run, including the final of the Peruvian Apertura that made them champions of the first part of the Peruvian league. Meanwhile, Arsenal had a poor showing in the Argentine cup, failing to reach the knockout stages. Also, they played their last competitive game more than a month ago, which is why our prediction is for Sporting Cristal to win the game.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Sporting Cristal averaged 2.17 goals per game in the group stages of Copa Libertadores, while Arsenal de Sarandi averaged the same number of goals in their Copa Sudamericana matches. With that in mind, we don’t expect to see many goals in their upcoming duel and our prediction is for the match to go under 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score – No

Since we don’t expect many goals in this game, we also don’t expect to see both teams scoring in it. Furthermore, both teams have scored in only 17% of Sporting Cristal matches in Copa Libertadores, while the same is true for 50% of all Arsenal matches in Copa Sudamericana. So, our suggestion is to bet on at least one team failing to net a goal.

Sporting Cristal vs Arsenal preview: The unlikely duel in the Top 16 phase

While the home team is in better form, the guests have tradition and reputation on their side. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their upcoming match:

Sporting Cristal

The team from Lima had a great time in the Peruvian Apertura since they won the title in this competition after beating Universidad San Martin in the final, after extra time. The team is also on a three-game winning streak in the Peruvian cup and they enter the Top 16 phase of Copa Sudamericana in good mood, the phase that they reached by finishing third in their Copa Libertadores group.

Arsenal

It’s been more than a month since Arsenal played a competitive game, so it’s safe to say that they will be a bit rusty after such a break. In addition to this, Arsenal didn’t have the best time in the Argentinian cup, finishing in the 24th place in the standings and failing to reach the knockout stages of the competition. However, the team did much better in Copa Sudamericana since they secured a spot in the Top 16 phase after topping their group.
