Bet South American Futbol: Miller picks Palmeiras v Universitario de Deportes, Quito v Calera, Lanus v Aragua
South American cups continue Thursday with another full slate of action, including defending champions
When Palmeiras lifted its second Copa Libertadores title back in November, it meant that the Brazilian side would go into the 2021 edition with a target on its back.
That is the price you pay for silverware.
Palmeiras has already qualified for the Round of 16, but can improve its seeding with a win tonight over UdD.
LDU Quito needs to win to ensure advancement into the Copa Sudamericana, and should be able to do so at home.
In the Sudamericana group stages, Lanus has been eliminated, but will take on Aragua, which has a -15 goal difference in five matches.
I am going to roll with the favorites.
