Melgar vs Sport Boys Prediction
As Melgar and Sport Boys go head to head, we shouldn’t expect too many goals. We would like to point out that recent meetings between these teams have mostly been on the low-scoring side; as three of their last four encounters went under 1.5. In the same vein, Sport Boys have been involved in their fair share of low-scoring games; five of their last seven matches went below the 2.5 goal line. Melgar should ultimately win, but this should be a low-scoring affair.
