Colo Colo vs Delfin – Copa Libertadores: Colo-Colo has actually had some
good performances on the season, but their results are still somewhat inconsistent.
The team is only in 5th place of their domestic league, 5 points away from the leaders. On the Copa Libertadores, Colo Colo is still winless after having played 2 matches so far.
The team even comes into this duel with more confidence. On the last round, on a national derby against La U, they have won by the minimum margin.
That was the only occasion on their last 6 matches where they were able to successfully keep a clean sheet.
Looking to continue the momentum they gained on the Chilean derby, having a lot of strength when they play in front of their passionate fans, Colo-Colo will play against theoretically the weakest team in the group, looking to get their first win on this Libertadores.
The manager Pablo Guede has doubts about the availability of the veteran Jaime Valdés due to muscular problems.
After surprising on the last season, Delfin has been making a campaign far from the spotlight.
The team is currently in 8th place amongst 12 teams on their domestic league, currently. On the current streak, Delfin has 4 losses on their last 6 matches, which is complicated.
If they want to have some hope on their first participation in the Copa Libertadores, they know they have to step up here. But with such inconsistent numbers recently, it’s hard for the team to find confidence for that.
Managing to present a little bit more tactically and, especially, playing their part on defence, holding on, is the key point for them to be competitive. As visitors, their responses are scarcer.
The manager Guillermo Sanguinetti won’t be able to count with Luis Luna, who is suspended, and with Carlos Garcés and Roberto Ordóñez, who are injured.
Colo Colo vs Delfin – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Colo-Colo, sometimes, overcomplicate. But they have an experienced and qualified team, and when they are confident, they are capable of producing very well.
After the victory on the national derby on the past weekend, facing a rival that seems to be inexpressive, the scenario looks almost ideal for Colo-Colo.
The visiting side still has some important absences going into this match. With their passionate fans pushing them forward, I believe that Colo-Colo will be able to get a good win here.
