Caracas vs Liverpool FC
South America – Copa Sudamericana
Date: Tuesday, 28th May 2019
Kick-off at 21.00 UK/ 22.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Olímpico (Caracas).
Liverpool won the first leg of this tie with a 1-0 scoreline, at home. It must be noted though, that the result was completely demoralizing to Caracas. They held on to a 0-0 score till the 89th minute and would have had the mental edge going into the second leg. But the hosts, who had effectively used their three substitutions, found out a way to go ahead on aggregate.
Caracas has the home advantage this time around, and it will massively come into play. They are obviously the better team under this scenario, considering Liverpool’s struggles on the road this season. But Caracas cannot concede if they want to avoid huge pressure owing to the away-goals rule.

Caracas vs Liverpool FC Prediction
Caracas was unbeaten in 14 of the last 17 matches, and at home, they have an even more impressive record of 14 unbeaten matches from 15 attempts. Just the last match-day, the team recorded a 5-0 home win over Llaneros.
Liverpool, meanwhile, was winless in nine of their last fifteen matches, and importantly, could record just four wins from their last 22 road trips. Also, note that Liverpool faced an embarrassing 5-0 defeat at their home just two weeks back, against Danubio.
Finally, Caracas is one of the toppers of their league, whereas Liverpool is placed in the bottom tier of their respective competition. Moreover, considering the Sudamericana does not employ the concept of extra time, the penalty shootout, should it be used, will predominantly favor the hosts. Count on them to have a great outing against Liverpool this Tuesday.
