Round 5 of Copa Libertadores in Group G is scheduled this Wednesday as Colon of Argentina is set to host Olimpia from Paraguay at Estadio Brigadier General Estanislao López.
The Argentinian side is level on points with the toppers Cerro Porteno, with 7 from 4 games played. They won twice while drew and lost each other fixture. It is due to the goal difference, that Colon remain second to Cerro Porteno even though they won against them by 2-1 previously.
In Copa de la Liga Profesional, Colon is at 9th the spot with 16 points from 14 games. They lost back to back league fixtures and it has been 10 games where the hosts have gone through without seeing a league victory. They come here on the back of a 1-2 loss against Velez Sarsfield in their domestic clash.
On the other side, Olimpia Asuncion is just below them in Copa Libertadores group standings, but with 5 points from 4 matches. They won and lost each game while drawing twice and they remain in the 3rd spot. The visitors are on the back of a 1-0 in the group to Penarol in their previous fixture.
Olimpia is in the Paraguay Primera Division with 30 points in hand after playing 16 games. The visitors come here on the back of a 4-1 win over Tacuary in the league which was their second win in a row. They are third in their domestic league and need 6 more points to reach the second spot.
Colon vs Olimpia Head-to-head (h2h)
- They met only once in the reverse fixture where a draw was seen with no goals to spare.
Colon vs Olimpia Prediction
Colon lost only once from their last 5 home games across various competitions. But they won the last 2 home games played in the Copa Libertadores gaining 6 points in total.
Meanwhile, Olimpia Asuncion had a mixed result in their away schedules, winning and losing twice on each of their last 5 on-road fixtures. They even lost the only away game played in the group to Penarol.
We feel that a home win or draw seems the safe option as the two even settled for a draw in the reverse fixture.
