Nueve de Octubre vs Guairena FC Prediction
Nueve de Octubre are currently on a 3-game unbeaten run at home across different venues and they have been slowly finding momentum. They haven’t lost a single home game in Copa Sudamericana and has took 4 points alone from home.
Meanwhile, Guairena FC are without an away win since their last 5 games played on-road. They played only one away game in the group and that ended on a draw.
We envisage a home win to happen this Wednesday as the hosts remain tough to beat at home and also their past h2h was just a narrow victory.
