Home team won 2-1 in the first game at "Hernando Siles" and got a head start for the final. ''Tigers'' took the lead at 43' with Ramiro Ballivianm, but Jorge Wilstermann drew 1-1 with Alex Silve. Luis Martelli's goal in the end of the game gave The Strongest the desirable win.
Jorge Wistermann advanced to the final as favorites against San Jose. They had an away win 2-4 and a home win 1-0. Their defeat in the first match from The Strongest stoped team's consecutive wins. Now they want only a home win to get to the penalty shootout. In any other case they will finish second. Suspended midfielder Juan Aponte is out as he was sent off in the stoppage time of the first game.
On the other hand, The Strongest won Bolivar 0-1 away and had a draw 1-1 at home. But The Strongest seem to be quite unstable during the season...Daniel Faria's team will play without suspended goalkeeper Vaca. Defender Ortiz is coming back.
Jorge Wilstermann is a more stable team and at home they are surely favorites for the win. Being with the back against the wall, they want only a win with any score (goal diffrrence doesn't matter), to get to the penalty shootout (noextra time). Home win @ 2.15 will be my bet.
