Rampla Juniors vs Santa Fe
Date: Friday, 20 July 2018
Kick-Off at 01:45 UK
Venue: Estadio Olimpico (Montevideo).
Uruguayan side Rampla Juniors are going to face Santa Fe in the Round of 16 of Copa Sudamericana.
Home side is not enjoying a good form as they have lost three games in a row. Their campaign in Torneo Intermedio is pretty poor as they managed to book only two victories in seven rounds.
Julio Cesar Fuentes’ side hasn’t been too poor in the front, but their defensive work is the worst in the competition.
In the previous round of Copa Sudamericana, Rampla Juniors managed to eliminate Peruvian side Cajamarca.
Santa Fe entered this phase of the competition by winning the third place in Copa Libertadores group stage.
They tied two straight victories in all competitions, however their campaign in the Colombian Liga Aguila has not been successful as they failed to find the place in the playoffs.
Wilson Morelo and the lads are pretty productive in the front, while their defending could have been tighter.

These two sides didn’t have the chance to face each other so far and this is going to be their first head to head clash.
Rampla Juniors vs Santa Fe: Prediction
Although the hosts are in the middle of the domestic campaign, they are in a very bad form and Santa Fe might get that opportunity to secure a positive result. We are going for an away victory in this one as the visitors are the favourites in this tier.
Both sides are not doing very well in the back, but this clash could be pretty tight one. The crowd shouldn’t expect to see too many goals and our prediction says this clash will remain under 2.5 margin.
