Current 1×2 odds are Fluminense 2.00, Guayaquil Barcelona 4.0 and the draw 3.2 Odds correct at time of publishing and subject to change.
Fluminense made it 3-0 on aggregate over Paraguayan side Cerro Porteno thanks to their 1-0 home success last week, with striker Fred netting a penalty in the first half. Therefore, they reached the quarter-finals as they had done in their last appearance in this competition in 2013. On Sunday, they lost 1-0 at America Mineiro to break a two-game winning run in all competitions. Roger Machado’s men are now out of the continental spots in the Brazilian league table, accumulating 17 points in 14 matches. On a positive note, Fluminense won their last two home matches.
Barcelona SC recovered from their slump in Argentina and showed a great display of effort to beat Velez Sarsfield 3-1 at home (3-2 on aggregate) to reach the quarter-finals after three years of absence. Last Saturday, the team beat Guayaquil City 2-1 at home to remain perfect in league action, having taken all nine points in the second stage. In fact, they are on five consecutive victories in all competitions. El Idolo won their last away game (2-1 at Tecnico Universitario) to stop a three-game winless run of one draw and two defeats on the road.
Barcelona has been super solid in this competition, they won their group that had big clubs like Boca and Santos, and I think they are good enough to take at least a draw from Brazil.
BET: Barcelona +0.5 @ 1.84
