Always Ready - Got its Last Fixture Canceled Against Vaca Diez (LWDLW)
Always Ready’s last game against Vaca Diez got postponed as the hosts didn’t have sufficient lighting conditions to go by the fixture at night. Going in the matchup, Always Ready is coming off a defeat against Magallanes (3-0), in which the visitors were taken to the cleaners. Pressure will be on Always Ready as they have a three goal deficit and produce a winning goal. However, winning from this point isn’t impossible, but Always Ready has managed to win just 1 of its last 6 Copa Libertadores fixtures. Considering Always Ready’s overall run this season, three of the four matches have produced three or greater goals. Hence, Always Ready will be managing to score, however, the chances for qualification are very thin for the home side.

Expert Betting Tips
After 38 years of consistent struggle, Magallanes did make an impactful comeback in Copa Libertadores and surprised the fans at home. Carrying the momentum and lead forward, Magallanes is likely to play with a defensive mindset, with a clear motive to minimize the scoring from the other end. With the likes of Berardo, Acevedo, and Vazquez in the center-back and defensive lines, Magallanes are likely to allow few goals against Always Ready. Hence, I am predicting a scoreline 1-0 or 2-0 at the end of 90 minutes of play.
