Estudiantes will welcome Everton to the Estadio Jorge Luis Hirschi for the second leg of their Copa Libertadores qualifier on Wednesday.

The hosts hold a narrow advantage in the tie, having secured a 1-0 away victory in the first leg last week. Matias Pellegrini stepped off the bench and scored a 79th-minute winner to help his side leave Chile with a crucial victory.

They followed up their continental win with a 1-0 defeat to Boca Juniors on home turf in the Copa de la Liga Profesional. Luis Advincula's second-half strike was the difference between the two sides.

¡SÍ, SÍ SEÑORES, TRIUNFO ANTE EL TETRACAMPEÓN! 😍 ¡Luchamos, batallamos, dejamos el alma y el corazón en cada balón! Sufrimos cuando nos dejaron con 10, lo jugamos sin nuestra gente, pero igual nos hicimos más fuertes y logramos un hermoso triunfo fuera de casa#VamosEverton🔵🟡

Everton returned to winning ways in the Chilean Primera Division. Lucas Di Yorio's 57th-minute goal helped his side secure a 1-0 away win over Universidad Catolica.

The winner of the tie will secure automatic qualification to the group stage of the Copa Libertadores.

Estudiantes vs Everton Prediction

Estudiantes have a narrow advantage and will be keen to complete the job in front of their own fans. The hosts have a superior pedigree on the continent and are favorites to emerge triumphant.

Everton need a win but are unlikely to sacrifice their defensive solidity to go all out for victory. Another tight game can be expected but we are backing Estudiantes to secure a narrow victory in addition to a clean sheet.

Prediction: Estudiantes 1-0 Everton
