Godoy Cruz vs Universidad Concepcion
Date: Thursday, 9 May 2019
Kick-Off 23:15 UK / 00:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Malvinas Argentinas (Mendoza).
Two entirely opposite football philosophies will come across each other in a decisive fixture of the entire Copa Libertadores campaign for both Godoy Cruz and Universidad Concepcion. Teams are level on six points coming into this last round clash at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas. The hosts are in a somewhat better position as they have a home court advantage as well as a better goal difference, meaning a draw would secure them a place in the knockout phase of the competition.
Tomba were eliminated in the last 16 round of Argentinian Copa de la Superliga after losing both legs to Boca Juniors (1-2 at home and 3-1 on the road). However, they kept their net untouched in both home outings in Copa Libertadores so far (a 0-0 draw to Olimpia and a 2-0 win over Sporting Cristal). Godoy Cruz generally shipped only three goals in five group phase matches. Can they keep things quiet at the back here against Chilean runners-up?

Teams shared spoils in a goalless draw when they met each other for the first time ever a month ago.
Godoy Cruz vs Universidad Concepcion: Prediction
Universidad Concepcion are going through a turbulent period at the start of the new season in the top flight of Chilean football. They only claimed 11 points from 11 matches which is enough for 13th place at the moment.
The visitors will come into this off the back of two tough defeats to Universidad Catolica (3-1) and Curico Unido (1-2). They have been dreadful travellers for a while now. Francisco Bozan’s men lost 14, drew 1 and won 1 of past 16 away matches in all competitions.
They held Olimpia to a 1-1 draw at the start of the Copa Libertadores campaign away from home, but fell 2-0 to Sporting Cristal just less than a month ago in their second away fixture in this competition.
The home win is well worth backing at the odds of 1.75, while you can also try with the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at 1.80.
