Copa Libertadores Round of 16 Games

  • When: Tuesday, July 13 – Thursday, July 15

Velez Sarsfield +275 Vs Barcelona SC +102

  • When: Wednesday, July 21

On July 14, Velez Sarsfield beat Barcelona SC 1-0. Since then, Barca SC has shown why they’re the chalk in this, dominating Macara 3-0 in an Ecuadorian Primera Division match. Velez Sarsfield drew 0-0 with top Argentinian League squad Racing Club in their last. Barcelona SC should be the chalk. The odds on Velez Sarsfield make them an overlay, though.  

Soccer Pick: Velez Sarsfield 

CD Universidad Catolica +1 ½ (-153) Vs SE Palmeiras SP -1 ½ (+115) 

  • When: Wednesday, July 21

CD Universidad Catolica must pick it up big time if they hope to keep it close versus SE Palmeiras SP. Catolica, a Chilean team, has a couple of draws, a win, and 2 losses in their last 5. The losses have happened in back-to-back matches. Palmeiras beat Universidad Catolica 1-0 on July 14. Palmeiras leads Brazilian Serie A. They should have no trouble making life more difficult for Catolica than it was in the first-leg. Don’t be surprised if Palmeiras wins this by at least 2 goals. 

Soccer Pick: Palmeiras 

Defensa y Justicia +1 ½ (-178) Vs CR Flamengo RJ -1 ½ (+133)

  • When: Wednesday, July 21

Flamengo’s and Defensa y Justicia’s form couldn’t be any more different. While Defensa y Justicia has a draw and lost twice in their last 3, Flamengo has won 3 straight. Flamengo beat Justicia 1-0 in the first leg even though Defensa y Justicia possessed the ball 56% of the time and took 14 shots with 7 on goal. Flamengo should play more aggressively in this. The Brazilian Serie A squad, that’s Flamengo, can beat their rivals by more than a goal. 

Soccer Pick: CR Flamengo RJ  

CA River Plate (ARG) -103 Vs Argentinos Juniors +110

  • When: Wednesday, July 21

In their last 5, Argentinos Juniors shows 2 wins, 2 losses, and a draw. In their last 5, River Plate has 2 losses, 2 draws, and a win. These two drew 1-1 in the first-leg.

Argentinos Juniors took a total of 3 shots. They made one of the shots. River Plate took 10 shots with 4 shots on goal. River Plate also controlled possession 57% of the time. The road favorite looks solid.  

Soccer Pick: CA River Plate (ARG)
