Penarol vs Libertad Match Preview and Predictions

Penarol vs Libertad
South America – Copa Libertadores
Date: Friday, 27 April 2018
Kick-Off at 01:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Campeon del Siglo (Montevideo).

Libertad are one foot into the knockout stage after winning all of three opening games of the campaign in Group 3 of Copa Libertadores. They are six points clear off the remaining three sides in the group at this stage of the competition and a win here would secure the next round of the competition for the Paraguayans.

However, Aldo Bobadilla’s men are about to face the toughest challenge yet, playing the likes of Penarol on the road. The Uruguayans proved their strength by beating Atletico Tucuman 3-1 in the only hone fixture in the group. Additionally, they have been doing well in the domestic league so far in the season as well, sitting second with only two-point deficit to leaders Nacional after 13 rounds of the competition.

Penarol vs Libertad: Head-to-head

Libertad were lucky to have completed a last-gasp comeback when the teams met for the first time ever in a competitive affair last week in Asuncion.

The veteran striker Oscar Cardozo was the one who bagged the match-winner in the last minute of the regular time.

Before that clash, the two sides took on each other in the mid-season friendly back in 2016 (ended 1-1).

Penarol vs Libertad: Prediction

Penarol have been impeccable in front of the home crowd so far in the season. They won 13 and drew 2 of 15 home matches across competitions. Furthermore, they won four of last five home ties in Copa Libertadores netting two or more goals in each of matches during the process. You can back them to notch two or more here at the odds of 2.25.

Libertad stunned Atletico Tucuman 0-2 in the first fixture of this term’s campaign, but they were winless in five straight outings on the road in Copa Libertadores before. This, combined with the fact they will be up against the super strong home side who will be highly motivated to get the revenge for the last week’s narrow loss in Paraguay, makes the 1.85 odds offered for the home win here look delicious.
