Palmeiras vs Emelec
South America – Copa Libertadores
Date: Wednesday, 18 May 2022
Kick-off at 23:00 UK / 00:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Parque.

Round 5 of Copa Libertadores in Group A is scheduled this Wednesday as Palmeiras of Brazil is set to host Emelec from Ecuador at Allianz Parque.

The Brazilian side have the highest points with 12 in Group A as they have won all 4 games played so far. They have an incredible goals to conceding ratio here with netting 20 times overall while conceding just twice. Palmeiras have already qualified for Play Offs after winning against Independiente Petrolero by 5-0 previously.

In Serie A, Palmeiras is at the 9th position on the table with 9 points from 6 matches. They come into this encounter after a 2-0 win against RB Bragantino in their previous league encounter. That win marked their 5th game to remain unbeaten in the league.

On the other side, Emelec is just below them in Copa Libertadores group standings, but with only 5 points from 4 matches. They won and lost each game while drawing twice. Their main aim now will be to preserve the Play Off spot from Dep. Tachira who lies below with just a point deficit.

Emelec is in the Ecuador Liga Pro with 22 points in hand after playing 13 games. The visitors lost their previous league fixture by 0-2 over Orense. That loss ended their 8-game unbeaten run in the league and in order to reach the top spot, they now need 6 more points.

Palmeiras vs Emelec Head-to-head (h2h)

  • They met only once in the reverse fixture where Palmeiras won by 3-1 on last month.

Palmeiras vs Emelec Prediction

Palmeiras remain unbeaten in their last 5 home games across various competitions where they won 4 of those. They have won all of their Copa Libertadores fixtures till now and has maintained the best goal ratio in the group.

Meanwhile, Emelec are winless in their last 2 away league fixtures. But they lost only once in Copa Libertadores and unfortunately that loss was against this same rival at home.

Even though the hosts have qualified for the Play offs, that doesn’t mean that they will go easy on this visiting squad. We therefore feel that a home win is likely to occur with over 2.5 goals on the way.
