      Caracas vs Huracan Predictions


      The 1st Leg featured just 1 goal and it went to Huracan. They were helped by the sending off of Caracas’ Miguel Mea Vitali in the closing moments of the 1st half but had to wait until the 75th minute for Mariano Gonzalez to break the deadlock and score what could end up being the decisive goal in this tie given both clubs have a tendency for low scoring games.

      Both sides were again involved in 1-0 matches at the weekend in their respective league fixtures. Caracas beat Aragua to record their first win in 9 attempts if you include 3 pre-season friendlies. They were also helped by the sending off of an opponent so we probably shouldn’t read too much in to that win.

      Huracan meanwhile lost a scrappy game 1-0 at home to Atletico Rafaela in the Argentine top flight and that was settled by an own goal so it’s probably fair to say we shouldn’t expect a classic here.

      There have been just 2 goals in the last 4 matches involving Huracan who drew both legs of their Copa Sudamericana final against Santa Fe 0-0 in December but lost on penalties. Their run to the final was inspired by strong defensive showings on the road and they kept clean sheets away from home in the Quarter Final, Semi Final and Final so will most likely come here with a safety first mentality and back their defence to get the clean sheet they need to make the group stages.

      Caracas will have to be a bit more attacking but haven’t scored in any of their last 5 matches in this competition so consider backing ‘No’ in the ‘Both Teams to Score’ market at 4/6.

      This is unlikely to be one of the ties of the week and it could take a moment of magic or mistake to settle it. The visitors will take real confidence from their recent results on the continent though and are well capable of securing a 0-0 draw and 1-0 aggregate win. You can back this game to finish without a goal at 11/2.
