FBC Melgar vs. Cajamarca Prediction
In the first three rounds of the Clausura, the home team registered 2 wins and 1 loss. They scored 2 and conceded 1 goal. Cajamarca recorded 1 win and 3 losses in 4 matches played, with 3 goals scored and 9 goals conceded.
In a week, FBC Melgar will host Internacional in the quarter-finals of the Copa Sudamericana, and it will be a historic occasion for them. Taking that into account, we believe that their thoughts are on that duel, which could very well affect the result of this match.
When we add to that the fact that the matches of the home team are mostly with a smaller number of goals, we decided this time to give an advantage to the visiting team. Bookmaker bet365 gives odds of 1.50 for the visitors to lose by 2 goals in the Asian Handicap, which, taking everything into account, has great value in our opinion.
