Deportivo Lara vs Millonarios Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 24th April 2018
Deportivo Lara vs Millonarios – Copa Libertadores: After the historical victory
against Independiente on the debut, Deportivo Lara lost at home against Corinthians and Millionarios playing away from home.
And on this round, they play again in front of their fans but even with the victory on the first match, I don’t see them managing to stay competitive when facing stronger opponents.
Coming off 4 consecutive losses, three in the league and the loss to Millonarios last week, they were always seen as the worst team in the group, with the team that drops points against them probably failing to qualify onto the next stage.
I followed their first match against Independiente and they faced a discouraged team, that thought they would win without putting a lot of effort into the match and that ended up working out poorly for them.
The pitch is very inconsistent which is important to highlight because that surely gives an advantage to the home side, who is more used to it.
Millionarios: Occupying the middle of the league table on their domestic league, the Colombian side knows how important it is to win this match if they have pretensions of advancing onto the next stage.
With Independiente’s surprising loss to Lara, the group opened up and the qualification that seemed very unlikely (upon the two giants of the group) has turned into something completely attainable, and for them to reach that objective, they know they have to win the two matches against the Venezuelan club.
Since they’ve won 4-0 playing in Colombia, they come into this away encounter even more confident.
Deportivo Lara vs Millonarios – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Comparing the quality of the two teams, the gap there is between the two clubs is clear, even because of the difference in quality between their respective domestic leagues.
Knowing they need a victory to dream about qualifying, Millonarios, even playing away from home, has everything to lead the actions in this match and impose their best football.
It’s important to note that a week ago, when these two teams met in Colombia, Millonarios won 4-0 very easily, which gives us even more confidence on the Colombian team for tonight’s match, despite having to face the challenges of playing away from home and on a very inconsistent pitch.
