The Campeonato Nacional meeting at Estadio El Teniente on Tuesday will see home team O'Higgins play Palestino.
View all of the O'Higgins v Palestino predictions, poll and stats below (including the best match odds).
O'Higgins will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 0-1 Campeonato Nacional success over Everton Viña del Mar.
It has been seldom in recent times that O'Higgins have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Capo de Provincia have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 12 goals along the way.
Analysis of their past results shows that O'Higgins:
- are unbeaten in the league by Palestino in their last 8 games. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.
- have not registered a win against Palestino in their last 3 league matches.
- haven’t won at home in the past 7 league games. Their fans aren't happy.
Palestino come into this game following a 3-1 Campeonato Nacional win against Colo-Colo in their last game.
The stats tell the story, and Palestino have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 12 goals in total. Defensively, El Tino-Tino just haven’t been too solid at all. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this match, of course.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Palestino:
- have not emerged victorious against O'Higgins when having played them away from home in the previous 4 league games. They'll be keen to stop this run.
- are without a win away from home in their last 5 matches in the league.
Head to head
Looking at their most recent head-to-head clashes stretching back to 06/05/2017 shows that O'Higgins have won 2 of these and Palestino 0, with the tally of drawn results being 4.
A combined total of 16 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 9 of them for Capo de Provincia and 7 netted by El Tino-Tino. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.67.
Team News: O'Higgins
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the O'Higgins manager Patricio Graff to contend with from a near full-strength squad. Hugo Herrera (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out.
Team News: Palestino
In an otherwise healthy group of players, there is only the one fitness issue for the Palestino boss Ivo Basay to contend with. Guillermo Soto (Torn muscle bundle) won’t be in action.
When taking all factors into account, Palestino and O'Higgins may both find scoring difficult here.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. We therefore think that it’s going to be a very competitive game with a 0-0 scoreline at the end of the 90 minutes.
