Alianza Lima vs Palestino
CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores
Date: Wednesday, 8 May 2019
Kick-Off 01:30 UK / 02:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Alejandro Villanueva (Lima).
Alianza Lima play host to Palestino in a match which will by no means affect the final standings in Group A. The hosts had a dreadful campaign in this term of Copa Libertadores. They picked up only one point in five games so far and hold the very foot of the standings with a horrendous goal difference of 1-10.
Copa Chile champions, Palestino, were somewhat better with four points from three opening rounds. However, back-to-back defeats to Internacional 3-2) and River Plate (0-2) moved them away from the battle for the second-place finish and a spot in the knockout stage of the competition.
Ivo Basay’s men should still continue their continental adventures in Copa Sudamericana being three points above rock-bottomed Alianza Lima in the battle for the third-place finish. Only a loss by five or more goals difference would drop Palestino to the last place in the Group A ladder.

Palestino celebrated a demolishing 3-0 victory when they hosted Los Blanquiazules in early-April this year.

Alianza Lima vs Palestino: Prediction
The visitors showed much better performances so far in the competition, but it is really hard to give accurate betting predictions knowing teams have nothing to play for here. We really doubt Palestino can lose by five or more goals difference.
What we could expect is a goal fest, though. The hosts conceded and scored at least two goals in three of past four domestic league matches at Estadio Alejandro Villanueva. Palestino allowed at least two goals in four of last five away games in all competitions.
Both Teams To Score is a must-take bet at 1.90 odds, while you can alternatively back the hosts to net two or more goals at 2.62.
