Thursday night, European time, in the Copa Libertadores will be a time of Argentine duels. The pair of Velez Sarsfield and River Plate will probably gather more attention. But almost at the same time, the other representatives from the country, Taglierez and Colon, will also play in the 1/8 finals. What can the visitors from Santa Fe expect? The website’s editorial team has a unique insight into the match that will take place in the early hours of June 30, 2022. For full statistics and odds for the match, look at 1xbet eu.
Taglierez are looking much less confident this season than they have in the past
“The Matadors finished the 2021 draw in 3rd place. The representative of Córdoba has only finished higher in the Primera once in its history, back in 1977. Against this background, the results of the Diego Maradona Trophy this spring were poor: only 11 points in 14 games. Only 2 outsiders had even weaker results there! The club had a difficult start in the Primera, and in the cup the modest Chaco For Ever were only beaten on penalties. But in the Copa Libertadores, they made it to the play-offs, scoring a comfortable 11 points.
Colon (Santa Fe) has mostly frustrated fans this season than delighted them
Los Sabaleros were able to finish 7th in the final standings of the Primerae last season. That was enough to get them off to a good start in the Copa Libertadores. They were in a very evenly matched group, with a chance of qualifying in the next round – but there was also the risk of relegation. In the end, it was the Argentines who came first, picking up 10 points. Just to give you an idea of the level of intrigue, Peñarol, 4th team in the group, ended up with 7! On the domestic scene, Colón are less successful. Winner of the last Diego Maradona Trophy, this spring the club scored 16 points in 14 games and did not reach the play-offs at all. In the Primera the results are also mediocre and the Santa Fe representative has already managed to fly out of the cup, losing on penalties to the Patronato a week ago after 1-1 in regulation and added time.
Talleres had four wins in a row. But then Colón knocked out this opponent on penalties in the quarter-final of last year’s Diego Maradona Trophy. And then beat him minimally in the autumn and within the framework of the Primera Division.
Prediction for the match
Taglierez are given the advantage as a club that plays at home. Colón have somehow completely deflated, so a passable bet on the hosts with a handicap “0” (odds – 1.64) looks like a passable one.
