Pacific FC vs Atlético Ottawa. Shape of the Teams

Pacific will host Atletico Ottawa in the second leg of the Canadian Championship. The first match ended in a goalless draw, with neither side creating many chances. However, at the quarter-finals stage, a cautious encounter was anticipated.

Pacific FC have been on an unsuccessful run, losing two matches in a row, including one against Ottawa in the Canadian Premier League. James Merriman’s team has struggled recently and they have been without a victory in the past four games. In addition, they have problems in both defence and offence.

Atletico Ottawa, on the other hand, is currently leading the CPL. Their 10-match unbeaten streak and excellent form make them the favourites in this meeting. However, their performance in the first leg was dull and lacklustre.

Pacific FC vs Atlético Ottawa Prediction, Odds

In the previous nine head-to-head meetings, Atletico Ottawa has only lost once against Pacific. Overall, the guests are performing well and are on the stronger side. Moreover, they have a balanced squad that can press well and maintain possession while attacking.

Swiss forward Ruben del Campo and Manny Aparicio are the two main stars for Ottawa. In the CPL, del Campo leads the list with five goals. At the same time Aparicio will certainly pose a threat for Pacific with his technique and speed.

Pacific is not having a good time and I think they will find it difficult to secure a victory in this match. Creating dangerous chances has been a problem for them,resulting in a lot of goalless matches. Therefore, I expect that Atletico Ottawa will at least clinch a draw in this match.

Pacific FC vs Atlético Ottawa Betting Tip

The previous four H2H matches all ended with fewer than 2.5 goals,with neither team scoring more than one goal. Recent matches show that Pacific FC are not a team that heavily focuses on the offence and Atletico Ottawa also does not score very often.

Given the importance of this match, I think both teams will prioritize organized defense rather than launching immediate attacks. In the first half, I expect a more cautious approach from both teams.

The first game only had 13 attempts and four shots on target. It is likely that we will see a similar performance in this match as well.
