Reason For Rionegro Aguilas vs Oriente Petrolero Betting Tips

Friday’s Copa Sudamericana first round, first leg action sees Colombians Rionegro Aguilas doing battle with Bolivians Oriente Petrolero. The hosts are expected to win what should be a pretty exciting game.

Rionegro come into this clash hoping to put themselves in a good position prior to the second leg. Whilst they’re not fancied to go far in the Sudamericana this year, this is a tie that they are slight favourites to win and as such, they’re hoping to at least make it into the second round.

The side haven’t been particularly impressive so far this year and are under-performing, as they do have some good players in their ranks. New manager Ever Hugo Almeida took charge of the side for the first time in a promising draw away at Envigado with 9 men over the weekend and now managing the team for the first time on home soil, he’ll be expecting to pick up his first win at the helm.

Meanwhile, Oriente Petrolero are hardly fancied to make any waves in the competition this year either and they’ll do well to even advance from this tie. If they can go home undefeated from this trip to Colombian soil, then they’ll be in with a chance of progressing, but that’s easier said than done, given they hold a less than impressive away record.

Indeed, Oriente have lost 4 of their last 5 away games and certainly aren’t renowned for their strength on the road. The side have also lost 4 of their last 5 games overall, so aren’t particularly confident coming into this game and have very little momentum behind them.

Ultimately, neither team has been impressive in recent weeks, nor does either team look in the right condition to contest the Sudamericana. Nonetheless, up against one another, both teams will view this as a winnable tie and will be hungry to win it. Rionegro are the stronger team on paper, and that’s reflected in the odds on offer, but better value can instead be found in backing the over 2.5 goal line here.

Rionegro’s last 5 games have featured an average of 2.8 goals and 3 of their last 4 home games have cleared the over 2.5 goal line. Meanwhile, 4 of Oriente’s last 5 away games have also seen over 2.5 goals scored and given they’ve also lost 4 of said trips, we fancy them to fall to defeat in a high scoring game once again on Friday, with a 3-1 margin of home victory on the cards.
