For this week’s accumulator were off to South America, where some of the biggest names of Brazilian and Colombian football are in action in the Copa Libertadores. First up, an all-Colombian clash between Santa Fe and Junior.
In Group H Cerro Porteno take on America de Cali, where the winners will take the final qualification place. Finally, Sao Paulo can take top spot in Group E if they can defeat Sporting Cristal. Let’s have a look at where we’ve found some value in the markets.
Regardless of what happens in the above match, Junior must win here to qualify for the next round. Their hosts Santa Fe are in pretty bad form, they’ve only won one of their last nine games in all competitions. At home though, they’ve only lost two of their last nine, winning three and drawing two
Junior’s form isn’t great, they’ve only won one of their last five, drawing three and losing one. Away from home they’ve also won one, drawing two and losing two. Junior have an awful record at the Santa Fe, winning just one of their last 15 matches there and aren’t in the best of shape. This won’t be the walkover the market is expecting though, the value is in opposing the favourites here.
Cerro and Cali are fighting it out for the last qualification place here. The away side must win here and even then they may still not make it through thanks to being on -3 goals, and with Cerro are on -2, they have to win by two goals. Neither side are in great form, both have won just one of their last five, drawing two and losing two.
Cerro have scored just four over their last five at home and have failed to net in three of their last five at home. On their travels Cali have also failed to score in three of their last five, scoring a total of three goals. This one has ‘tense’ written all over it, and with both struggling for goals, Unders is the way to go.
Sao Paulo are already assured of their place in the next round of the competition. They could overtake Racing at the top of Group E, but they’d need them to lose to Rentistas, which is rather unlikely.
The home side have won three of their last five, drawing and losing one apiece. At home they’ve won four and lost one of their last five. Cristal have won three of their last five, losing two. Away from home they’ve won two of their last five, drawing one and losing two.
Cristal have to really go for it here, but the home side are in pretty good form – winning five of their last six matches by at least two goals. Cristal have only scored three goals over their five games in the competition and have only netted three over their last four away matches.
