Deportivo Lara vs Millonarios: Preview and Predictions

Deportivo Lara vs Millonarios
Copa Libertadores
Date: 24-April-2018, Tuesday
Kick-off at 23:15 UK/ 0:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Metropolitano de Futbol de Lara (Barquisimeto).

Deportivo Lara are fairly a new name in Latin American football and are huge underdogs in this year’s Copa Libertadores group stage that includes two heavy weights Corinthians and Independiente.

Still, the Venezuela club drew the first blood in the campaign by bagging a 1-0 win against Argentine side Independiente on matchday 1. However, they lost back-to-back home on the road since, the latest to Tuesday’s visitors Millonarios by a massive 4-0 margin. They will be looking to restore some parity and stay ahead in the race for third place with a win here.

Millonarios also started their campaign in style with a surprise goal-less draw at home against the Corinthians. They were brought back to earth in the next round as they lost 1-0 away at Independiente. But their last round’s thumping win in Colombia keep them aloft at second in the table. Yet, there is plenty of football left to play before they can start dreaming of the knockout phase.

Deportivo Lara vs Millonarios: Head-to-head

The first leg clash that ended 4-0 in favour of Millonarios is their lone meeting with Deportivo Lara.

Deportivo Lara vs Millonarios: Predictions

We are seeing a trend of these small clubs making life difficult for big clubs at their own backyard. Tuesday’s host Lara had done it in their lone home game so far against Independiente. While the Colombians are unbeaten in their two.

If the trend is to continue, then Deportivo Lara are the team to back here. Also, when considering the fact that Millonarios had lost their last five away games in the tournament without scoring.
