With Defensa y Justicia dropping points in the tournament’s opening match, the host does not seem promising enough to test Palmeiras at the other end. On the other hand, the visitor will come into the game-winning both the first two rounds in Libertadores this term.
The home team will play on the back of a 3-0 win at home against the likes of U. de Deportes in the last clash in Libertadores. Palmeiras carried on their winning streak in the tournament with a massive 5-0 win at home against the likes of Ind. del Valle in the previous Copa encounter.
Defensa has a decent form in the campaign but has scored just four goals in two attempts. Meanwhile, the guest has slotted in 8 goals against the two conceded, keeping a clean sheet in the last appearance in Copa Libertadores.

Defensa y Justicia vs Palmeiras Prediction
Defensa has won only one of their last five matches across all major competitions. The host has lost three of the rest in the process and two defeats came at home.
With just one win in their last six home matches in their overall schedule, the host is not likely to have any use of their ground advantage in the game.
In the meantime, Palmeiras has won three of their last five fixtures, and the remaining two games ended in a loss at home. They are on a three-game winning streak on the road across all contests.
Hence, the double chance favoring Palmeiras will probably be the best bet for the punters. Furthermore, expect a couple of goals in the fixture, holding the tip for over 1.5 goals to probably serve the purpose in the clash
