Copa Sudamericana 2013, First Round
Not the best start in this year's Copa Sudamericana, betting-wise, so let's try to make things better-looking. We'll start in Uruguay, where El Tanque Sisley will be making their continental debut against Colo Colo of Chile. El Tanque made a name for themselves as being a tough team to break, and they also keep it as close as possible, regardless of the opposition. However, the performances that saw them qualify to Sudamericana have long been forgotten, as this year they've made a mediocre campaign, and they ended the season with 10 consecutive games without a win. They didn't sign any important players, and they also had to cut their preparations short, as the start of Sudamericana was moved 2 weeks earlier. They are a team without any international experience, and I expect them to struggle against better teams, like Colo Colo. The Chileans, who just started the domestic league, were the fools of the first round, as they were trashed 0-4 by Audax, despite having an extra man for about 50 minutes (during which the score went from 0-0 to 0-2). I'm expecting this result to give them a 'kick' and some extra-motivation. They have the quality, no doubt about it, so it's just a matter of recovering after the previous results. This line gives us an insurance in case of a draw, so I'll gladly take it. GL!
