Estudiantes LP vs Fortaleza Predictions

  • Four of Estudiantes’ last six home games saw both teams score.
  • There were goals at both ends in each of Fortaleza’s last five away games.
  • Estudiantes have a perfect home winning record in the Copa Libertadores (W3).

Estudiantes can become the masters

After grinding out a 1-1 draw in Brazil, Estudiantes have the advantage of coming back to Argentina on level pegging. The story of the round of 16 so far has largely been low scoring encounters, with just two of 11 at the time of writing producing three or more goals, yet we think this one could buck that trend.

Estudiantes are often rock solid on their own turf, only losing once here within 90 minutes since Boca Juniors ran out 1-0 winners back in March (W9, D2). Within that run is two of their three Copa Libertadores home wins, another here will send them through to the final eight and keep that perfect record alive, a considerable carrot indeed.

Fortaleza must overcome their away woes

Fortaleza recently followed up a run of three straight away wins with three consecutive travelling defeats to this point, conceding eight goals in the process. While they have won their last two Libertadores away games, a rotten defensive record of one clean sheet across the last seven competitive trips hardly inspires confidence.

We are backing Estudiantes to come out on top in this second-leg encounter. Going against the overarching theme of the tournament may be risky, but we fancy this to be possibly one of the more exciting matches, so we are sticking with a small stakes play on a 3-1 home win.
