Oriente Petrolero - BolivarSo far Oriente played at home only 3 games ,2 wins and 1 loss and we can expect from them always strong performance in Santa Cruz.The coach will have almost all players available ,also the playmaker and maybe best player in the team Mojica 9/1 is ready on 100% and will play full match.
On the other hand Bolivar are in too busy program with league and Copa Libertadores.In last two weeks Bolivar played many games.
Of course that Libertadores is main goal for them.Their chances to qualify for next round are really great and they must focus in the last two very important games there.
So,what is my view here.After this visit in Santa Cruz ,Bolivar have to travel to Mexico for game in Copa which is crucial for them and because of that coach should rest most of the players against Oriente.
After the game vs Oriente ,the team will travel on air to Leon and this is very hard 13 hours trip. For sure players will be tired after such long plane. I doubt coach to make mistake and to risk qualification in Libertadores for not so important game in the league.
All players of Bolivar said that its difficult for them to play on two fronts.They put big power in last two games against Flamengo and for sure they are tired and need rest to be ready for Leon. For this game injured are regular striker Yerecotte 22/2 and spaniard defender Edu Moya 10/1.
However ,Bolivar always have problems in this visit against Oriente. H2H in Santa Cruz is all in favor of Oriente 13-5-4 . I would bet on Oriente even if Bolivar play with full squad...so , when we have mixed team of Bolivar on which mind now is only Copa Libertadores I will go with higher stake than usual medium.
Pick: Oriente Petrolero
Odds: 1.80/ still go down
