Although many spectators and fans think that a 3-1 victory, which Universidad Catolica put down in the first match against Petrolero Yacuiba, is enough for the progress in the second round, that is not simple as many of them think. This competition has a long history of wonderful surprises, and that is why we choose this game to present for tonight. The second and in our opinion more important reason is that we think it will be a high-efficient game, which is very important for our betting.

The hosts in this contest are much closer to win but we are going to skip this outcome, and we are going to advise you to bet only on goals in this game. Over 3.5 is something that we believe will happen easily. Also over 1.5 goals in first half time is realistic, and our advice is that you should try this also. Both teams to score and over 3.5 goals is another variation on this game which has a lot of potentials.
Goals: Over 3.5
Goals: Over 1.5 first halftime
Goals: Both teams to score and Over 3.5 goals
