Colo-Colo vs Alianza Lima Prediction
The hosts suffered a defeat in their previous league outing, but have 19 goals in nine league games, and their odds of scoring here look good. Alianza have seven goals in seven league games but will be boosted by their win against UTC on Sunday.
Farfan has been a key absentee for the Peruvian side, and this has had an impact on their attacking output. We do not see them scoring here and the game should end in an easy win for Los Albos.
Prediction: Colo-Colo 2-0 Alianza Lima
