Of course that facing one of the greatest champions of the history of the Copa Libertadores is always complicated. But this Corinthians’ team is tailored for matches exactly like this one.
Matches where they will be attacked and will need to defend themselves and then move quickly on the counter-attack and decide the match.
Independiente vs Corinthians – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Carille’s Corinthians and all the success the have been achieving is due to them being a reactive and very pragmatic team, who is hard to beat. This Independiente has lost some important pieces and hasn’t been performing very well on the season.
Even on this Libertadores, they have lost away from home against Lara and struggled a lot to beat the Colombians of Milionarios at home.
The team hasn’t impressed and pressured by their need of victory, they might offer precisely what the visitors need, so I don’t picture the Brazilians losing here.
