Palmeiras to Win
Palmeiras thrashed Independiente Valle 5-0 when the two sides clashed for their reverse group fixture last month and so far the Brazilians have won each of their three matches in Group A. Palmeiras have won five of their last six matches in all competitions and look really good going forward right now, while their hosts have lost two of their last four outings.
Over 2.5 Goals
Well over 2.5 goals were scored when these two sides last met and with at least three goals being scored in five of the host's and four of the visitor's last six fixtures, we're expecting another goal-fest on Wednesday.
Both teams have scored in four of Independiente Valle's last six outings in league and cup while two of Palmeiras's last three fixtures have also produced goals at both ends of the pitch, so you can see just why we're backing both teams to score in this game.
Independiente Valle vs Palmeiras: Stats and Odds
Palmeiras to secure another 3pts against Independiente Valle
Independiente Valle sit 3rd in both their domestic league and in Group A of the Copa Libertadores heading into this week's clash with Palmeiras. After suffering a 5-0 defeat in brazil when these two sides went head-to-head in April, you can understand why the Ecuadorian side are the underdogs for Wednesday's match. However, we're not expecting Palmeiras to have it all their own way this week and fully expect Independiente Valle to get on the scoreboard and make the game more competitive than it was when they last met.
Palmeiras have a 100% record in the group stage and will be looking to maintain their excellent run of form in the Copa Libertadores with a win that would confirm their place in the knockout stage. Winning on Wednesday would allow the Brazilians to rest and rotate players for the final two games in Group A, so there is plenty of motivation for Palmeiras to get the job done in Ecuador. The visitors are in fantastic form right now with five wins from their last six matches in all competitions and it is going to take something special to stop them from winning again on Wednesday.
