Universitario de Deportes vs Corinthians Prediction 19 July 2023

Universitario de Deportes take on the visitors Corinthians in the second leg of 1/16-finals in Copa Sudamericana playoffs. First leg result: 0-1. The match will be played on Wednesday, July 19th at Estadio Monumental (Lima).

Universitario has been without significant trophies for a long time. "Los Merengues" have been champions of the country 26 times. However, this year marks a kind of anniversary, 10 years since their last "gold" triumph. Since then, they have only achieved a runner-up position in 2020, and the latest edition of the championship resulted in a 5th place finish. Nevertheless, by defeating Sensiano in the playoffs, the "creamy ones" secured a spot in the Copa Sudamericana. In the tournament, they accumulated 10 points, winning twice against Argentina's Gimnasia y Esgrima, both at home and in La Plata. This allowed them to continue the fight in the playoffs. However, in Brazil, they couldn't hold on to the 0-0 scoreline and conceded the only goal in the closing stages.

Corinthians cannot solely focus on the international stage. "Timão" is a popular and fairly successful club even by Brazilian standards. Last season was relatively decent for them as the São Paulo giants finished in 4th place. However, there has been a significant decline this season, and there is a real threat of getting involved in a survival battle in Serie A. In the Copa Libertadores, they mainly had success against Liverpool Montevideo, defeating the Uruguayan side twice. However, in the other four matches, they only managed a draw against Argentinos Juniors (0-0 in Argentina). This was enough to secure passage to the playoffs, albeit in the Copa Sudamericana. They started off with a victory, thanks to Felipe Augusto da Silva's goal in the 79th minute.

The teams faced each other for the first time on the night of July 12th. Although the game will take place in Peru, according to the odds, experts consider the chances of success to be equal. However, it is important for the Brazilians not to lose and therefore not to concede. Betting on "under 2.5 goals" seems reasonable.

Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
