Deportes Iquique head to Estadio El Teniente on Tuesday for the Campeonato Nacional clash with home side O'Higgins.
Our O'Higgins v Deportes Iquique tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below (plus the best game odds).
O'Higgins will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 0-1 Campeonato Nacional success over Universidad de Chile.
Their most recent results show that much solidity has been shown by the O'Higgins defence. Capo de Provincia have been mean at the back, resulting in the number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their last six clashes standing at 3. With no two games being the same, time will tell if that pattern will be replicated in this match or not.
Coming into this clash, O'Higgins are unbeaten in their previous 4 league matches at home.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Universidad Católica in Campeonato Nacional competition, Deportes Iquique will be hoping to turn things around here.
For 5 of the past 6 games involving Deportes Iquique, a notably low volume of goals have been scored between them and opposing teams. The overall average number of goals per game during that period works out to a paltry 1.83, with the number of goals averaged by Los Dragones Celestes being 0.83.
Ahead of this meeting, Deportes Iquique are without an away win for the past 3 matches in the league.

Team News: O'Higgins
There is just the lone fitness concern for the O'Higgins manager Patricio Graff to be concerned with thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Hugo Herrera (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined.
Team News: Deportes Iquique
Owing to a fully injury-free group to choose from, Deportes Iquique manager Jaime Vera does not have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash.
Our feeling is that O'Higgins certainly have the ability to get a couple of goals in this one when they meet Deportes Iquique, who may well find it hard getting goals.
We’re therefore expecting to see a 2-0 winning margin for O'Higgins at the end of the 90 minutes.
