Sporting Cristal vs Talleres
South America – Copa Libertadores
Date: Wednesday, 18 May 2022
Kick-off at 1:30 UK / 2:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Alberto Gallardo.

Round 5 of Copa Libertadores in Group H is scheduled this Wednesday as Sporting Cristal of Peru is set to host Talleres Cordoba from Argentina at Estadio Alberto Gallardo.

The Peruvian side is yet to secure their first win in the group, having lost thrice while drew once from the 4 fixtures. Sporting Cristal head into this match after a 1-1 Copa Libertadores drawn result over Universidad Catolica. They scored only twice while conceding 6 in total and remain at the rock bottom of the group.

In Liga 1- Apertura, Sporting Cristal is at the 3rd position on the table with 25 points from 13 matches, three points off league leaders Melgar. They come into this encounter after a 3-2 win against Ayacucho in their previous league meeting.

On the other side, Talleres Cordoba have enjoyed a fine campaign so far and find themselves 2nd in the group standing with 7 points from 4 games. Previously, they drew by 2-2 to Flamengo and they need only 4 more points to takeover the top spot.

The Argentine side is 12th in Copa de la Liga Profesional with 11 points from 14 games played so far. They come into this fixture after a 1-0 win over Sarmiento in their most recent league match. They really need to look onto their offensive side as they seems to be lacking finishing quality.

Sporting Cristal vs Talleres Head-to-head (h2h)

  • They met only once in the reverse fixture where Talleres Cordoba won by 1-0 through Matias Esquivel.

Sporting Cristal vs Talleres Prediction

Sporting Cristal remain unbeaten in their last 4 home games across various competitions where they even won thrice of those.

The hosts must now avoid any slip-ups in their final two outings as they look to leapfrog third-placed Universidad Catolica in the Copa Sudamericana qualification spot.

Meanwhile, Talleres Cordoba have lost all of their last 6 outings across various competitions and last time they won an away fixture was back in December. They now need a maximum of 4 points from their final two outings to book their place in the knockout phase of the continental competition.

We feel that a home win is up for cards as the visitors have continued to show their flaws on-road while Sporting Cristal remain even stronger at home ground.
