Universitario vs Oriente Petrolero: Universitario and Oriente Petrolero play the decisive 2nd leg of this Copa Libertadores’ 1st round
Oriente has won 2-0 on the first leg, in a surprising fashion in my opinion, since they are a team with less history and power than the Peruvian club, who was favoured to advance on the previews.
Universitario: 4th place on the last edition of the Peruvian Clausura, the historical Peruvian team will have the obligation of imposing their own game, pressuring the opponent throughout the 90 minutes if they want to advance here, since they didn’t play well and lost 2-0 on the 1st leg.
With one of Peru’s biggest set of supporters, the team will have a packed stadium as a weapon.
The team usually plays well at the Monumental de Lima that has the capacity up to 80 thousand people, number that should obviously be limited to one a little bit lower due to safety reasons.
In 15 total matches on the 2017 Clausura, they’ve gotten 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses.
Oriente Petrolero: The Albiveredes from Santa Cruz de Sierra were able to get an excellent result on the 1st leg, and they can even lose by a 1-goal difference here and still achieve qualification for the next stage of this competition.
If they lose by 2 goals, they can still advance, in case they are able to score 1 goal at least, where as another 2-0 would take the match into a penalty shoot-out.
The team finished in 6th place of the 2017 Clausura, with a record of 7 wins, 7 draws and 8 losses, which is a very weak record, considering we’re talking about a league that only has 12 teams.
Universitario vs Oriente Petrolero – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Historically speaking, there is a huge difference between these two teams and these two countries as well, when it comes to football, which naturally gives the favouritism to the Peruvian side.
The fact that the Bolivian team is able to qualify even with some loss scenarios makes this situation even more interesting to bet on the home side to win.
One of the negative aspects it that the team can go too much on the attack at the end, if they are in need of a goal and leave their opponents too much space for the counter-attack.
