Libertad vs Godoy Cruz Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Reason For Libertad vs Godoy Cruz Betting Tips

Both sides made fairly solid starts in last month’s opening to the group stage. Godoy Cruz managed to pick up a point at home to Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro, who are fancied to top the group, while Libertad took a share of the spoils from a trip to Bolivian side Sport Boys, in a thrilling 3-3 clash. The onus is on Libertad here, playing on home soil. They will surely be looking to take an early advantage in the race for knockout phase qualification.

That’s something they will definitely have confidence in doing, given the form they are currently in. The Asunción based side sit top of the pile on the domestic front and look well on course for the title. They are undefeated in the eleven games contested so far, and have won eight of them, including the last five consecutively. In Santiago Salcedo they have a man in real form, the veteran striker has scored 9 goals in 10 league games and also scored twice in the game against Sport Boys.

The early stages of Lucas Bernardi’s reign as Godoy Cruz boss had been looking strong, but form has started to tail off in recent weeks. Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Colon was a third consecutive one and did little to aid Godoy Cruz’s rather mediocre 17th placed standing in the Argentine Primera. Confidence will not be high ahead of this trip, given they have lost seven of their nine away trips in the league this season.

Libertad have enough about them to pick up the points. Backed by a fervent home crowd in front of which they are thirteen unbeaten, in excellent form and up against a side that struggles on the road. If they want to advance to the knockout phase this is one they really need to be winning, with Godoy Cruz likely to be a far more difficult proposition in the return game in Mendoza.

The hosts have scored multiple goals in six of their last seven encounters, and we believe they will do so again here. We do believe that Godoy Cruz have the quality to score, but we are backing it to count for little as Libertad run out 2-1 winners.
