Sporting Cristal vs Universidad Catolica Prediction

Sporting Cristal won the last 2 home league matches in a row. But they are still unable to secure at least a point in Copa Libertadores. They have lost all 3 games played here and are in dire need of a win.

Meanwhile, Universidad Catolica lost the last 5 away games in succession across all competitions. They also lost all away games played in Copa Libertadores too. Since they won the last h2h meeting, that cannot be repeated here because it is their away fixture.

By the looks of things, expect a Draw or win for home side, this Thursday.
