Copa Libertadores Qualifiers

Kick-Off at 21:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Nacional Julio Martinez Pradanos, Santiago.
The most popular football competition in South America, Copa Libertadores is in the qualifying stage and we are having a lot of interesting match-ups in the next couple of days.
The action is starting on Tuesday night in Chilean capital where Universidad de Chile welcomes Brazilian powerhouse Internacional. Visitors have been marked as warm favorites for the win, priced at 2.20 odds.
Both teams are miles away from being in a competitive form due to fact their national championships are in early stages. Internacional are still warming up in Gaucho 1 bracket. They have won three out of four games so far there, but keep in mind a big majority of competition is semi-professional.
One of the most recent acquisitions Thiago Galhardo has scored three times in the last four appearances and he should represent the biggest threat for Chilean hosts. This player bagged 12 goals playing for Ceara in the previous campaign.
Universidad de Chile had a rocky start in the Primera Division. It started with an unexpected 2-1 loss to Huachipato on the road. Herman Caputto’s men have recovered and demolished Curico Unido 5-1 in the second round.
Universidad de Chile vs Internacional: Head-to-head

Universidad de Chile vs Internacional: Prediction
Internacional are a better team at this moment in our opinion, but qualifying matches are always tricky to predict, especially in the early stages of a football season. Visitors from Brazil don’t have a reason to rush anywhere because the 2nd leg match is going to be played on their turf in seven days. Backing the draw is a good value.
