The victory over Vasco playing in Brazil was very important for the club’s ambitions on the Copa Libertadores.
The group E is the toughest of the competition, so that victory I mentioned has a huge value for La U to get one of the top 2 spots that would grant them access to the next round.
Now, against Racing, they will have to outperform themselves once again, because, even playing in Chile, the battle will be very intense.

Undeniably, the way that Racing has been presenting itself, both in the Argentinian Superliga and on the 1st round of the Copa Libertadores’ group stage has been very interesting.
The team really counts with their attacking prodigy Martinez to get their positive results.
Since he is still a young prospect, it is natural form him to oscillate a bit on a couple of matches, and that makes Racing not be as strong as they look.
Their defence has been quite underwhelming and that is definitely something to highlight on this analysis.
Playing away from home, the team has conceded at least 1 goal in every match so far on the season.
Maybe that’s the team’s weakest point, and an aspect that their manager should definitely try to improve moving forward.
Universidad de Chile vs Racing – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe this will be a very open match here. By both teams’ characteristics and by some of the stats I have analyzed, I took the decision of betting on both teams to score.
Let’s see: Playing at home, La U is always strong, and they should take the initiative, in order to win and gain an advantage on the group.
On their last 20 matches at home, they only failed to score in 1 of them.
Racing has proven to be very weak on defence, and they have conceded goals on their last 22 matches away from home. With that, I’m taking both teams to score here, because according to the historical records, I believe our bet will be successful.
