The Xolos Tijuana vs San Jose de Oruro Copa Libertadores 2013 match will be this Tuesday, February 26, 2013 (10:00 PM EDT) at the Estadio Caliente in Tijuana. This will be the second match for both squads in the 2013 edition of the Libertadores. They are part of Group 5 which also includes Corinthians (BRA) and Millonarios (COL); the top two teams in the group will advance into the next round.
Xolos of Tijuana is ready for their second match in the Copa Libertadores when they host San Jose de Oruro. Tijuana made history last week when they won their first ever game in their first ever appearance at a Libertadores tournament. They are currently on top of Group 5 with 3 points, and a win against San Jose will keep them there with a high probability of qualifying into the next round. Xolos is a team that is hungry for a historic Libertadores run, and that is why they played during the weekend with an alternative team, leaving most starters in good shape for Tuesday’s game.
San Jose de Oruro played a wonderful game last week when they tied Corinthians in Bolivia. Maybe the Brazilian squad was out of form, or the altitude was too much, but it does not take away the fact that San Jose tied the world’s champion. They will try to play another great game in the difficult Estadio Caliente, but in front they have a tough opponent, who is in form, and who is mentally ready for success.
Xolos Tijuana vs San Jose de Oruro Prediction
Club Tijuana is a top team in the Liga MX, and with their win last week in Colombia, they have begun to demonstrate that they could be a top team in this Copa Libertadores 2013. Xolos will have the advantage of their synthetic field, plus the fact that the Bolivian squad had to travel a hefty distance to arrive in Tijuana. San Jose de Oruro did what nobody believed was possible last week when they tied Corinthians, and they will play for another surprise result on Tuesday. As for the prediction, if one takes away the synthetic field, home, and travel advantages Tijuana is still a superior team and should have no problem defeating San Jose. The final score in the Xolos Tijuana vs San Jose de Oruro match will be 2-0 in favor of the home team.
