Fluminense vs Antofagasta Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 26th February 2019
Fluminense vs Antofagasta – Copa Sudamericana :Fluminense returns to the competition at a stage where the teams are fighting for qualification to the final stages of it.
On this match of the 1st round, Fluminense hosts Antofagasta, looking to travel to Chile with an advantage on the 2nd leg duel, scheduled to be played in approximately a month.
On the past Friday, the Brazilian team has beaten Bangu by 2-0, on the match that marked the start of the Taça Rio, the 2nd stage of the State Championship, where Flu lost in the final of Taça Guanabara to Vasco, a week ago.
Deportivo Antofagasta will make their debut on international CONMEBOL competitions in this duel, after a great campaign in the Chilean league last season, where they’ve finished in 4th place after being in the fight for a spot in the Copa Libertadores.
The club has been consolidating their position on Chilean football for the past couple of seasons and they see their participation of last year crowned with this participation in the Copa Sudamericana.
With two rounds already played of the new edition of the Chilean league, Antofagasta already has 3 points, conquered on the debut, away from home against Audax Italiano (3-0).
On the past Friday, the team lost on the reception to Unión Española (1-2).
This is a tie where despite the Brazilian favouritism, Fluminense will already certainly be aware of the dangers of undervaluing this opponent, even because of the examples they already had on this same edition of the Copa Sudamericana, where Bahia was eliminated by the Uruguayans of Liverpool Montevideo and Chapecoense also by the Chileans of Unión La Calera.
That way, I believe that Fernando Diniz’s side will be prepared to get a good result on this 1st leg at home, to avoid being surprised in Chile within a month.
Fluminense vs Antofagasta – Betting Tip and Prediction: :
Taking this match seriously, I believe that Fluminense has every condition to win and even get a solid victory, eyeing the qualification towards the 2nd round.
The team has more quality and counts with a higher competitive rhythm when compared to Antofagasta, so I expect them to take advantage of the 1st leg at home here.
