Curico Unido

Last season, Curico Unido looked great - Albirojos managed to qualify for the Copa Libertadores for the first time in their history. The team of Damian Muñoz finished the championship on the third line, leaving behind the local grand in the person of Universidid Catholiki.

In the new season, Curico Unido started very poorly - three defeats in five rounds and so far only 10th in the table, but recent failures were due to preparations for the main confrontation in their history with Cerro Porteño.

Cerro Porteño

Cerro Porteño capitalized on Olimpia's financial troubles and Libertad's decline last season to secure their 34th league title. In the last Cup of Libertadores, the Blue Garnet also looked quite decent - they got out of a difficult group, but already in the 1/8 finals they lost to Palmeiras without a chance.

In the Paraguayan Apertura, which started in January, Cerro Porteño has already played four matches without suffering a single defeat - with eight points, the Facundo Sava team is second in the table, two points behind the leader Libertad.

Game Totals Prediction

Curico Unido strives to play attacking football, due to which errors often occur in defense - they have not managed to win back in one of the last four matches to zero. Cerro Porteño is an experienced fighter and will be able to turn one of these mistakes into a goal, but there is no doubt that before leaving for Asuncion, Albirojos will strive to create at least a minimal advantage for themselves, the Chileans have been preparing for this meeting for a long time and dry the opponent is unlikely to leave.

We believe that there will be goals in the match. Prediction: both teams to score. In Mostbet, such an outcome is offered with a coefficient of 1.99.

Curico Unido are not in the best shape for their Copa Libertadores debut with Cerro Porteño - three defeats in their last four matches. However, it is very typical for South America to sacrifice domestic championship matches for the sake of international tournaments, especially when the club gets the opportunity to break into the group for the first time in history, so it makes no sense to seriously pay attention to these results.

Cerro Porteño has a huge advantage in experience over the opponent, but there is no global superiority in the class, due to the motivation of the hosts, the wave is strong enough to fight for the victory.

Our second bet will be the Asian Handicap (0) on Curico Unido. In Mostbet, such a bet can be placed for 1.97.
