Penarol vs The Strongest: Preview and Predictions

Atletico Penarol vs The Strongest Copa Libertadores 2018

Penarol vs The Strongest
Copa Libertadores
Date: Thursday, 17 May 2018
Kick-Off at 23:15 UK / 00:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Campeon del Siglo, Montevideo.

Penarol will need a huge favour from group leaders Libertad in order to book a place in the knockout stage of the competition. They are three points short of the second-placed Atletico Tucuman and they need the Argentines to lose the last round’s clash away in Asuncion in order to overtake them with a win over the already eliminated The Strongest.

The visitors have nothing to play for here in the last round given they’ve only won three points in five games so far. An upset at Estadio Campeon del Siglo would move them lock on points with the third-placed Penarol, but the Uruguayans have a much better goal difference (by nine goals), meaning the Copa Sudamericana football remains only a dream for the Bolivian outfit.

Penarol vs The Strongest: Head-to-head

The two sides met each other in the group phase of the same competition back 14 years ago.

Teams grabbed comprehensive home wins (2-0 for The Strongest in Bolivia and 4-0 for Penarol in Uruguay).

The Strongest clinched their lone victory in this term just against Penarol, beating them 1-0 two months ago in La Paz.

None of last three H2H encounters saw both teams on the scoresheet.

Penarol vs The Strongest: Prediction

Penarol will be massive favourites for the comprehensive victory here, but will it be enough to get them in the knockout stage? They will no doubts go strong from the kick-off looking to remove all doubts about the match-winner in the first half here. We thus recognize the value in backing the hosts to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the odds of 1.80.

The Bolivians have nothing to play for here and they lost each of two away matches in the group with the same 3-0 scoreline. We expect a similar scenario to happen here knowing that Penarol won 15 and drew 2 of last 17 home games in all competitions. You can back the hosts to win by two or more goals at the odds of 1.75.
