Sides Set For Stalemate in South America
Attention turns to Brazil on Wednesday with Palmeiras hosting Argentinian side, River Plate in the second leg of the semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores.
The hosts hold a 3-0 lead from the first leg and will be confident of making it through to the final with some good league form giving them some extra confidence. The side have won four in a row in all competitions, without conceding a goal and they’ll be keen to keep that form rolling ahead of a potential final.
River Plate ended the Argentinian season in second position, missing out on being champions by just one point. Their loss to Palmeiras last week ended a run of 13 games unbeaten and they will be going all out to try and turn the tie around and reach the final once again.
With River Plate trying to overturn a 3 goal deficit, the match could well be an open one with Palmeiras hoping to soak up the pressure and hitting the visitors on the break. Their certainly looks like there will be plenty of goals in the match and we’re predicting both teams will score in this match.
And with both of these high quality outfits trying to reach the final of South America’s premier competition, we’re also forecasting a 1-1 correct score.
