Union La Calera looking to cause an upset

Chileans Union La Calera travelled to Rio de Janeiro for the first leg of this tie as big underdogs but managed to return home with a valuable away goal in a 1-1 draw. Union came under some significant pressure in said match but remained defensively strong and have now given themselves a real chance of causing a small shock and advancing.

Indeed, this wasn’t a tie Union were expecting to win but on home soil, they’ll now be confident of giving Fluminense plenty to think about. Overall, the hosts have lost just 1 of their last 12 games in front of their own fans and that statistic has confidence high going into Tuesday’s clash.

Fluminense keen to meet expectations

Meanwhile, it wasn’t a good night for Fluminense in the Maracana in the first leg and the result has left them under pressure in this return trip. A prolonged run in continental action in one the team’s main aims for 2020 and an early exit would put immediate pressure on Tricolor with the season still in its infancy.

On paper, Fluminense are a stronger outfit than Union and have better individual quality but this won’t be an easy game for them by any means. Arriving off the back of a 3-2 defeat to rivals Flamengo, spirits aren’t the highest and travelling ranks and they’ll need to be at their best to get the job done. 

An open game is expected

Ultimately, we’re expecting Tuesday’s game to be an open and exciting affair.  As hosts, Union will be far more expansive than they were in the first leg, whereas Fluminense will also be looking to play on the front foot; as they need to score at least one away goal and will want to assert their superior quality onto their opponents.

All things considered, backing the Both Teams to Score line looks the best way to play as far as the betting is concerned in this one and is something we’re more than happy to do. Both teams have scored in 3 of Union’s last 5 games, as well as in 4 of Fluminense’s last 5 Sudamericana outings and we fancy both themes to continue in a a 1-1 draw that would force penalties.
