Jorge Wilstermann vs Vasco – Copa Libertadores: This Wednesday, Jorge Wilstermann hosts Vasco on the Copa Libertadores’ qualifying play-offs.
This will be the 2nd leg, after the 1st leg played in Brazil where Vasco battered the Bolivians by 4-0 and practically ensured the access to the next stage. But they still have 90 minutes to play here and in football everything is possible.
The Bolivians’ task is very complicated since they need to revert a 4-goals disadvantage on the scoreline, but everyone there still believes that they can make history.
If there’s something to give them hope is that Jorge Wilstermann is usually very strong playing at home,
beating teams like Palmeiras, Atlético Mineiro and River Plate last season for example. However, their moment of form is different now and the situation is also different.
If we look onto their matches at home, most of them finish with more than 2 goals, with the team being able to score constantly. However,
their defence also concedes a lot of goals, and it is worth noting that they have the altitude factor as their ally.
Vasco travels to Bolivia and they bring a comfortable advantage. In the 1st leg, Vasco have played very well and deservingly got a 4-0 on the score line. Now, they will need to know how to deal with the altitude and manage that advantage.
On the previous stage, Vasco has knocked out U. de Concepcion, winning both matches, with a 4-0 win in Chile and a 2-0 win in Brazil. Since last season, Vasco has been showing a certain consistency, and the arrival of the manager Zé Ricardo served them well.
Jorge Wilstermann vs Vasco – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I expect a very exciting match this Wednesday.
Normally Wilstermann’s home matches are very lively and this one, by everything that happened in the 1st leg, promises to be even more.
For the hosts, they have no other choice. They need to go on the attack and try to score the necessary goals, to revert the situation, and they have the altitude as their great ally.
With that, Vasco, that is a much more qualified team, can take advantage of the spaces opened by their opponent to counter-attack. So, I believe that will be the scenario of this match and the chances for goals are very good in my opinion.
