Tip Reasoning

  • Blooming haven’t won any of their last 4 home games.
  • Emelec have won 10 of their last 15 matches.

Blooming looking to cause an upset

Far from a powerhouse even in their own, weak domestic scene, hosts Blooming come into the Copa Sudamericana pencilled in for an early exit. The side fell at the first hurdle back in 2018 in a 4-1 aggregate defeat to Brazilians Bahia and now up against Emelec, the odds are firmly stacked against them.

Indeed, Blooming come into the tie with little momentum behind them and though they desperately need a good result in this home leg; one hardly looks forthcoming on current form. All in all, Blooming have now lost 4 of their last 6 matches, conceding an average of 2 goals a game in the process and that leaves confidence low in home ranks.

Emelec looking to stamp their authority

Meanwhile, typically more accustomed to competing in the Libertadores, Emelec are one of the bigger names in this year’s Sudamericana and will be looking for a deep run in it. With a squad that is far stronger than Blooming’s on paper, the visitors come into this tie as big favourites and will be looking to assert their superior quality on Thursday.

Emelec’s domestic season hasn’t started yet, so they’ve only played friendly matches in 2020 but early signs are promising enough, with 2 wins from 3 collected. Overall, the Ecuadorians have now claimed victory in 10 of their last 15 outings and such an impressive streak means that they don’t make this trip with confidence in short supply.

Emelec have to be fancied

Ultimately, Emelec are clear and obvious favourites in this tie and also in this fixture and it’s not hard to see why. Blooming are a weak outfit and have been losing convincingly to teams with far less quality than Emelec in recent weeks, so it’s hard to see them stepping up to the challenge.

All things considered, we’re more than happy to back an away win and feel it provides excellent value at current odds. If Emelec play at anywhere near their maximum, they’ll win the game and we see them doing exactly that in a comfortable 2-0 margin of victory.
