Velez Sarsfield vs. LDU Quito (Thursday, 11.00pm)
Velez Sarsfield will hope to move into second place in Group G of the Copa Libertadores on Thursday when they host LDU Quito at Estadio Jose Amalfitani in Buenos Aires.
The Argentines are one point back of Los Blancos in the standings and will be looking for some payback after the Ecuadorians beat them earlier in the competition, 3-1 in Quito.
We say: Velez Sarsfield 1-1 LDU Quito
The Argentinians will be expected to win at home, where they have won four of their last five matches in all competitions. Still, Quito have more recent experience in this tournament and should be more comfortable in this pressure situation.
Always Ready vs. Olimpia (Friday, 1.00am)
Heading into the second half of the group stage of the Copa Libertadores, Always Ready can take a big step towards qualifying for the second phase when they host Olimpia at Estadio Hernando Siles on Thursday.
The Bolivians moved into second in Group B after blanking Deportivo Tachira 2-0, while El Decano suffered a 6-1 loss to Internacional.
We say: Always Ready 2-1 Olimpia
Olimpia are a mess defensively, giving up 21 shots on target through their first three games of this competition and they have conceded the most goals to this point of the 2021 Copa Libertadores.
The Bolivians have scored in seven of their last nine matches in all competitions and have looked a lot calmer at the back than their Paraguayan opponents.
America vs. Atletico Mineiro (Friday, 1.00am)
The Colombians have only earned one point from their opening three games, while Galo are undefeated so far as they seek their second title in this competition and their first since 2013.
We say: America de Cali 0-3 Atletico Mineiro
America are winless in their last five matches in this competition against teams from Brazil and they have struggled to find the back of the net in their first three games of this tournament, which does not bode well against a team that have only conceded two goals in their last five matches all competitions.
