Copa Libertadores Qualifiers
Date: Tuesday, 5 February 2020
Kick-Off at 00:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Bellavista de Ambato, Ambato.
Second qualifying round battles of Copa Libertadores are kicking-off this mid-week. Judging by the odds, one of the narrowest contests is going to be played in Ambato where Macara welcomes Deportes Tolima from Colombia.
Both teams have won very small percentage of matches in the last five weeks, so a victory here would be a true refreshment and morale boost. Macara are slightly favoured to win the first leg and gain some advantage before visiting Tolima. Hosts are currently at 2.31 odds to win.
Deportes Tolima definitely have the experience of playing in biggest competitions. They were in Copa Libertadores group stages in the previous season, ending it with two wins, two draws and two defeats. The biggest result of course was a home win against Athletico Paranaense 1-0.
As for the domestic campaign, Macara were stopped in the semi-finals of Ecuador Liga Pro by Delfin. They haven’t played one competitive game since early December 2019.
As for their opposition, Deportes Tolima could be described as the kings of draws. The last four official matches for this team ended without a winner. They are very efficient for standards of South American teams.
