Fluminense vs Universidad Catolica Prediction 30 June 2017

Tournament: Copa Libertadores
Location: Maracana Stadium
Match date: 30.06.2017 at 01:45

On June 30 2017 at 01:45 in the upcoming game of the round of 32 of the Copa Sudamericana at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro the local Fluminense are playing against Universidad Catolica.

Last time Fluminense achieved something big in their domestic championship was 5 years ago. Last time they showed great results in the Copa Sudamericana was in 2009 when the Flu made it to the final of the competition. At the moment Fluminense are very unstable in the Campeonato Brasileiro as they only gained 15 points in their starting 10 games and it let them take the 8th place in the standings. We must also remind you that in the previous round of the Copa Sudamericana Fluminense unexpectedly outplayed Liverpool Montevideo 2:1 in two legs.

As for Universidad Catolica, they have never achieved anything outstanding in their half a century history and their best period was in the 1970s when they became the vice-champions of Ecuador twice and they also won bronze medals twice. As for their achievement in the international competitions, Universidad took part in the Copa Libertadores twice and in the Copa Sudamericana four times. In the first stage of the national Serie A Universidad have already played 19 matches where they gained 24 points and took the 7th position in the standings which is a poor result for them. Petrolero were their previous competitors in the Copa Sudamericana and Catolica easily outplayed them 1:6 after two legs.

The upcoming game will be the first one played between the teams in their history. Both teams are the middle-peasants of the league and they show good results neither at home nor in the away matches. Anyway, we think that Fluminense are the favorites of the upcoming game and they are supposed to win at home, even though we aren’t sure that they have such an intension at all.
