- South America - Copa Libertadores
- Date: Thursday, 26th May 2022
- Kick-off at 23:00 UK/00:00 CET
- Venue: Estadio Monumental David Arellano
Colo Colo are 3rd on the group table with seven points from five played matches. They can progress to the next Copa Libertadores phase if they win against Fortaleza. Colo Colo won only two of the last seven games. In the previous match, they played 1-1 on the road against O'Higgins. That game was fairly even, so it is no wonder that the teams split the points. The home side got the lead already in the 2nd minute when Esteban Moreira scored. In the 65th minute, Colo Colo's Cesar Fuentes scored an equalizer.
Fortaleza are 2nd on the table with also seven points. For them, a draw will be enough to progress to the next phase. In the last match, Fortaleza lost 1-0 at home against Fluminense. The home side dominated as they had 63% ball possession and 23 shots on the goal, but guests still secured all three points. The only goal was seen in the 9th minute when Luiz Henrique found the net.
Colo Colo and Fortaleza had one h2h match last month. In that game, Colo Colo won 2-1.
Both teams to score - yes should be the best bet for this tie. My correct score prediction is a 2-1 win for the home side.
