Sporting Cristal to Win

While both of these teams are in good form at the moment and while we expect to see a very close duel decided by a slim margin, our prediction is for Sporting Cristal to win the game. Sporting already won the Peruvian Apertura and now they are also without a loss in the first four matches in Clausura, while Penarol is only fourth in Uruguay at the moment. Also, Sporting will host the first leg and that could be the deciding factor in the game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

These two teams only met twice in recent years and even that was half of decade ago. Still, the teams scored a total of nine goals in those two matches, so that could suggest that we may see at least three goals in their upcoming game. In the previous Copa Sudamericana round, both teams have gone over 2.5 total goals in one of their two matches, so this game could go either way – but our gut tells us that we will see some goals in this one.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

The two head-to-head matches between these teams that we mentioned before both ended with both teams scoring. Also, three of the four games played by Penarol and Sporting Cristal in the previous Copa Sudamericana round have ended with both teams scoring, so we expect to see the same in this match.

Sporting Cristal vs Penarol preview: A tough match to predict

With both teams doing well in their respective leagues, this should be a very interesting duel. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams ahead of their meeting.

Sporting Cristal

The team from Lima entered the Peruvian Clausura in a great mood after winning the Apertura by beating Universidad San Martin in the final, in a close duel that was decided in extra time. Meanwhile, Sporting Cristal has two wins and two draws in the first four rounds of Clausura and they are in the quarter-finals of Copa Sudamericana after they’ve eliminated Arsenal de Sarandi in the previous round.

Penarol

With two games left in the Uruguayan Apertura, Penarol is in the fourth place, six points away from the top team. So, their chances of topping the league are basically nonexistent. On the bright side, Penarol has a chance to go all the way in Copa Sudamericana since they are already in the quarter-finals of the competition. In the last five matches in all competitions, Penarol has three wins, one draw, and one loss.
