A goal frenzy last time out for América de Cali, with a total of 7 goals in the match against Internacional. Fun stuff to watch! Heartbreak for América in their last match as Internacional's G. Boschilia scored the winning goal deep into overtime.

The betting market estimate that the home team has about 55-60% chance of winning this match. There could be betting value if you think differently, so to help you here are the stats from América de Cali's earlier matches at home being 55%-60% favourite: Played five games, won two matches, drawn two and lost one.

Bucaramanga's last game was the home draw against Junior (1-1). Before that one, a nice away victory 1-0 at Cucuta Deportivo.

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day.
