Universidad de Chile
Universidad de Chile will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 0-1 Campeonato Nacional defeat last time out to O'Higgins.
Universidad de Chile have really been misfiring of late. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 4 against opposing sides over the course of their previous 6 fixtures. In those games, Los Azules have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 5. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this match, however.
Coming into this clash, Universidad de Chile have not won against Palestino in their last 3 league matches.
In the game prior to this, Palestino drew 2-2 in the Campeonato Nacional match with Unión Española.
Over the course of their previous 6 clashes, Palestino have helped themselves to a tally of 13 goals. El Tino-Tino have additionally got on the scoresheet in every single one of those games. During those fixtures, their defenders have had 6 goals go into their own net.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Palestino:
- have not been beaten by Universidad de Chile when they've played them away from home in the last 2 matches in the league.
- are unbeaten in their previous 3 away league matches.
Head to head
Checking out their prior head to head duels dating back to 22/10/2017, neither club has come out on top overall with Universidad de Chile winning 2 of those games, Palestino 2 and 2 being draws in regulation time.
A combined total of 21 goals were produced between them in this period, with 11 of them for Los Azules and 10 for El Tino-Tino. That’s an average goals per game of 3.5.
Team News: Universidad de Chile
There aren’t many selection issues, with just a single fitness concern for the Universidad de Chile gaffer Héctor Caputto Gómez to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Franco Lobos (Ruptured cruciate ligament) is out of contention.
Team News: Palestino
Due to a fully healthy group available to choose from, Palestino boss Ivo Basay does not have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match.
We believe that Universidad de Chile will have to work hard as a team to breach the defence of this Palestino team who should emerge victorious.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a highly competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for Palestino at full-time.
Looking forward to this.
