Alianza Lima vs Junior Barranquilla – Copa Libertadores: Alianza Lima hosts
Junior Barranquilha at the Alejandro Villanueva Stadiumm in Matute, on a Copa Libertadores’ match.
On a group with Palmeiras and Boca, it would be natural to consider Alianza and Junior as the underdogs trying to surprise one of the favourites and try to ensure a spot on the next stage. And for now, that’s exactly what has been happening.
Junior is in last place with 0 points conquered, and Alianza is in 3rd place with 1 point.
Boca and Palmeiras are in the lead and therefore, this match has a fundamental importance since it can maintain alive the ambitions of both on the Copa Libertadores.
On the weekend, Alianza suffered a loss against UTC with their reserves, and Junior also lost to Patriotas in similar fashion.

This is a 6-point derby for the two teams. Both Alianza and Junior are on a very delicate situation in the Copa Libertadores and if they don’t get any points tonight, the battle, that is already complicated, with Palmeiras and Boca will become impossible.
Junior’s obligation is a bit bigger since the team has 0 points on the competition, while the Peruvians have 1 point conquered against Boca in Lima.
Once again, I don’t believe that both teams’ moments of form justify the visitors’ favouritism here. Junior has players like Teo Gutierrez and some others.
Alianza Lima vs Junior Barranquilla – Betting Tip and Prediction:
But Alianza has shown to be very competitive on the matches they’ve played so far against the best teams in the group.
And on a very close match like this, and exactly because of that, I believe that the value is all on the home side.
