The last game of the day in Bolivia, and we have Universitario Sucre – Real Potosi, starting 23:30 GMT. Expect another match with goals that involves Real.
Universitario Sucre – Is 6th in group A, with five points from six fixtures, 9-11 aggregate. Just one win this season for Óscar Sanz’s team and the play-off spots could be in jeopardy. However, at home, Universitario has just one defeat in the last eight league matches, and that was a 0-1 loss against champions Bolivar. A victory is needed and Sanz is prepared to put on the field the crème de la crème – has all his strikers at his disposal and we should see at least two of them start tonight. Sucre has eight straight home games with under 2,5 goals scored.
Real Potosi – Certainly our favorite team from Bolivia. Stands fifth in group A, with seven points from seven matches, 15-24 aggregate, but has two stats that are astonishing – has the best attack in the league, alongside Bolivar, but suffers in the back, having the worse defense. Lost all three away games this season, conceding 15 goals in the process, and scoring just once. To put things together in the midfield, Milton Maygua will have veteran Darwin Peña at his disposal. Real Potosi has eight defeats in the last 10 away fixtures.
Universitario Sucre – Real Potosi – Prediction
Is the classic of the South, so both teams will be looking for all three points. On the reverse, we saw a beautiful game, that ended in a draw, 4-4. In Sucre, the home side has won four of the last five meetings, scoring at least two goals in all the games won. The Bolivian press believes that Maygua will send an offensive team on the field, so not bet on goals again? Real Potosi hasn’t disappointed us yet.
Prediction: over 2,5 goals, odds 1.47
