Fluminense to stay top of group D

Group D is probably the closest group in the Copa Libertadores as things stand but that doesn't stop us from making the prediction that Fluminense will swat Independiente Santa Fe aside. The two teams have already met once with the Brazilian's proving too strong for their Colombian counterparts despite being the away side. The overall form suggests it will be another win for Fluminense too; they've won seven of their last 10 drawing the other three. Then you have Independiente Santa Fe; they have been in poor form of late with just two wins from 10. Their wait for a Copa Libertadores win will go on.

A minimum of three goals?

Last time these two met the score was 2-1, which means it was over 2.5 goals. That's not the reason we're featuring the bet in our list of tips though. That logic is supported by a slightly extended form. Take Fluminense to start; they've seen over 2.5 goals three times in their last five home game including the last two, which have seen a total of nine goals. Independiente Santa Fe's recent away matches have also seen three of five exceed the 2.5 cut off.

Both sides to be amongst the goals

With the prediction made that the Fluminense vs Independiente Santa Fe match will see over 2.5 goals, our next tip focuses on how those three (or more) goals might come about. Recent history suggests both sides will fancy their chances of registering on the scoresheet. Eight of the last 10 Fluminense matches – including their win over Independiente Santa Fe in April – have seen goals on both sides. Where Independiente Santa Fe are concerned they've only seen a ‘nil' in three of their last 10 matches. The only risk being their last two games have included them.

Can Fluminense take control of their group?

Group D is a very tense one at the moment. No side can boast more than a solitary win from their three games with all sides also drawing two and nobody having lost more than one. Fluminense currently sit top courtesy of their goals scored column with Independiente Sante Fe bottom due to theirs. That means this game takes on some significance; a win for the hosts could – depending on the other match – put them six points clear of third place with two left to play. A loss brings Independiente Sante Fe right back in the mix for qualification whilst a draw leaves things wide open in the group. Intriguing.
