After a six-month hiatus, this season's CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores returns in midweek as Santos host Club Olimpia during the early hours on Wednesday. Top of Group G after winning their previous two matches against Delfin and Defensa y Justicia, Santos fancy an opportunity to complete the three-team sweep before MD4 next week.

Olimpia drew with Delfin before a 2-1 win over Defensa y Justicia – their final match before the COVID-19 shutdown – means they sit second in the group. Can they sting Santos away from home here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Santos vs Olympia Asuncion Betting Tips

After narrow defeats by Palmeiras and Flamengo to end August, Santos are now unbeaten in their last four matches. They needed a stoppage-time equaliser from substitute Marinho to sustain the aforementioned statistic, but will be enthused by their comeback.

Naturally, head coach Cuca – who took charge last month – expects a response from his players against a side they've never played before.

Olimpia had a similar wobble in August, after a six-match unbeaten run (four wins, two draws). They sit third in Paraguay's top-flight with 19 matches played and it seems as though their title charge is dwindling to say the least.

Successive 4-0 wins against National Asuncion and River Plate is sure to provide them with much-needed morale considering the expected step-up in quality they face here.

Jorge Recalde netted a brace last weekend and has four goals in his last three games.

Former Bayern, Blackburn and Manchester City forward Roque Santa Cruz is always a reliable option in attack too, so Santos could have their work cut out defensively.

Santos vs Olympia Asuncion Correct Score Predictions

As mentioned, this is the first H2H meeting between these sides and both pose threats, even if Santos are seen as overwhelming favourites and rightly so. I'm leaning towards BTTS between a match neither wants to lose, considering how Group G currently stands in the Copa Libertadores.
