The second leg of the 2013 Copa Libertadores de America between Independiente Santa Fe and Club Olimpia is scheduled to take place on this coming Wednesday at Bogota’s Estadio Nemesio Camacho El Campin.
The visiting team will bring with itself a lead into this fixture as they claimed the first leg at their home 2-0. It means that Los Cardenales will need to beat their opponents by a resounding margin of three goals in order to advance to the finals in normal time.
But doing so won’t be easy by any means as they have lost both of their last two games – including the first leg defeat. A hat-trick of losses will see them exit the tournament. It is, however, pertinent to mention here that before this two-game slide, they enjoyed a massive 16-match unbeaten spree although exactly half of that spree were made of draws.
On the other hand, Olimpia have lost just one of their last nine games in all competitions. Their first leg win means that they are in control of this tie.
Some careless and rough defending in the first match led to the downfall of Santa Fe. If they can keep a lid on that aspect of their game then they can at least win the game if not the entire semi-finals. Therefore, the play here is to back Santa Fe for an outright win with MyBet at a return of 1.60.
