Alianza Lima lock horns with Fortaleza at the Estadio Nacional de Lima in the penultimate group stage fixture of the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday.

The hosts are without a win in the competition thus far and their odds of securing a place in the knockout stage do not look good. They have just one point from four games and might be able to secure a third-placed finish to head into the Copa Sudamericana group stage.

Fortaleza have four points, as they have just one win so far. They have a slim chance of making it into the next round of fixtures and will have to secure wins in their remaining two group stage fixtures.

Alianza held Colo Colo to a 1-1 draw last time around as they earned their first point of the season and will be looking to build upon the same here. Fortaleza also played out a 1-1 draw in their previous outing against River Plate and will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to three games.

Alianza Lima vs Fortaleza Prediction

Alianza Lima are currently on a run of 27 games without a win in the Copa Libertadores, so they might struggle here. They have scored just three goals in the competition while conceding six times but might be hopeful of a positive result at home.

The visitors have also boasted similar stats in the competition thus far, with four goals scored and six conceded. We expect the game to be a low-scoring affair and, taking into consideration the form of the two sides, a draw could ensue here.

Prediction: Alianza Lima 1-1 Fortaleza
