Melgar vs Santiago Wanderers Prediction and Betting Tip Preview

Libertadores

Melgar vs Santiago Wanderers – Copa Libertadores: Melgar from Peru and Santiago Wanderers from Chile decide a spot on the next stage of Copa Libertadores.

After 1-1 draw on the 1st leg, a new 1-1 result here would take the decision to penalties, while a 0-0 would mean that Melgar advances and a draw of 2 goals or more would mean that the Chilean team would qualify.

Whoever wins is, obviously, qualified onto the next stage.

Both teams are starting their seasons, but the scenarios are completely different for them: Melgar finished in 3rd place in the 2017 Clausura,

while Santiago Wanderers was relegated, having finished in 13th place of the league, with only 15 points after 15 rounds played.

You might wonder: How can a team that was relegated qualify for the Libertadores? It’s simple: Wanderers won the Chilean Cup, so, despite being relegated, they will try to qualify for this continental competition.

Some Brazilian teams have already gone through that. The last one was Palmeiras, in 2013.

Both teams started off their leagues with a win, on a match played after their first leg meeting. Before that, Wanderers had already lost
the Chilean SuperCup by 3-0 to Colo Colo.

I didn’t watch the 1st leg match, but I’ve watched Vasco x Concepcion. I’m surprised to see that there is a team that was able to finish behind the super weak Universidad de Concepcion.

Besides that, it is clear that Chilean football has been struggling, so much that their national team almost failed to qualify for the World Cup, while Peruvian football is on a roll.

From being disregarded, the Peruvians managed to ensure their presence in the World Cup through the Intercontinental Play-Offs, while Chile was considered favourite to qualify but they almost didn’t make it.

Melgar vs Santiago Wanderers – Betting Tip and Prediction:

The fact that they were relegated should impact Wanderers’ performance, who will have to look for the win since the 0-0 knocks them out.

Melgar plays at home, they are one of the biggest teams in the country and they are a 1st division team playing against a 2nd division team, so I’m going with Melgar to win here.
