      Deportivo Tachira vs Olimpia Predictions

      The home side qualified as champions of the 2014-15 Venezuelan Primera Division but they haven’t faired quite so well since then with defensive deficiencies their main problem. They have a large amount of Copa Libertadores experience but like most Venezuelan sides have struggled to have much joy in the competition.

      They’ve won only 1 of their last 21 matches in it but have only lost 1 of their last 7 at home in the Libertadores so they’ll still be hopeful of at least avoiding defeat here.

      Their chances are boosted by the current troubles of Olimpia. They may be the most decorated club in Paraguayan football but they are currently rock bottom of the Paraguayan top flight and have picked up just 4 points from their opening 5 fixtures in the 2016 Apertura. They’ve conceded 7 goals in their last two matches alone and don’t have a great away record in the Libertadores having won just twice away from home in the past 12 years.

      Goals here do seem likely at both ends particularly given the way Olimpia are playing. Both teams have scored in 4 of their 5 matches this season and in 12 of their last 15 overall. Both teams have scored in 3 of Deportivo Tachira’s 4 matches this season too and they will see this as one of their best chances to pick up a rare Libertadores win so they should be fairly positive. Therefore consider backing both teams to score here at 19/20.

      Picking a winner is a tougher shout. Olimpia are the better side but aren’t playing well and are conceding too many goals right now to suggest they will come here and win so consider backing a 2-2 draw at 14/1.
