Union La Calera and Velez Sarsfield prepare to lock horns on Tuesday, with both sides looking to record their first victory of the Copa Libertadores group stage.

The hosts kicked off their campaign with a 2-2 draw against LDU Quito but have since suffered a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Flamengo, while the Argentinian outfit have lost both of their first two games to Flamengo and LDU Quito.

We say: Union La Calera 2-2 Velez Sarsfield


With both sides desperate to avoid another defeat, we see this game ending as a draw on Tuesday.

Both sides possess the attacking quality to cause the other team problems, while struggling at the back, potentially making this an end-to-end encounter.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Atletico Mineiro and Cerro Porteno meet in the Copa Libertadores on Tuesday evening having both recorded four points from their opening two fixtures in Group H.

However, with third-placed Deportivo La Guaira just two points adrift, neither side will want to reach the midway point with a potentially-costly defeat.

We say: Atletico Mineiro 2-1 Cerro Porteno


Having kept two successive shutouts, the visitors will be confident of causing the upset on Tuesday night. Nevertheless, we are backing the home side to show their class, edging a competitive encounter by the odd goal in three.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Brazilian giants Santos welcome Bolivian outfit The Strongest to Sao Paulo on Tuesday in Copa Libertadores action, as both sides look to record their first points of the group stage.

The two teams come into this game having both lost their opening two games to Boca Juniors and Barcelona SC, while neither have registered a goal in this season's group stage yet.

We say: Santos 1-1 The Strongest


With both sides desperate to record their first victory of the group stage, we see them cancelling each other out on Tuesday.

Both teams have struggled for goals, but have also shown themselves to be leaky in defence, setting the encounter up for a low-scoring draw.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Less than a month after their battle in the CONMEBOL Recopa, Defensa y Justicia and Palmeiras renew hostilities in the third round of the Copa Libertadores group stage on Wednesday.

The Argentinian hosts have taken four points from their first two games of Group A, while Palmeiras are sitting pretty at the top following back-to-back victories.

We say: Defensa y Justicia 0-3 Palmeiras


The hosts' large-scale coronavirus outbreak is sure to hamper their aspirations of getting one over their old adversaries once again, and Palmeiras are showing no signs of letting up in their quest for back-to-back continental crowns, so we can only back a resounding win for the Brazilian outfit.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Barcelona SC and Boca Juniors square off in the Copa Libertadores on Tuesday night looking to extend their winning streak in Group C to three matches.

While both sides have also kept successive clean sheets, they are aware that defeat in their third outing will open door to Santos and The Strongest.

We say: Barcelona SC 1-2 Boca Juniors


Having scored more goals than their opponents, Barcelona will fancy their chances of overcoming their more illustrious foes. However, we are backing the Argentine outfit to prevail in a close match, one which may include a late winner.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
