Sporting Cristal prepare for this match coming off the back of a 0-0 Copa Libertadores tied result against Rentistas.
A common characteristic of more recent Sporting Cristal games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
Taking their previous six clashes leading up to this one, in 5 of them a bet on "Both Teams to Score" would have been a loser. It will be interesting to see whether or not that trend will end up being continued on in this game.
Racing Club go into this encounter after a 2-0 Copa de la Liga Profesional win over San Lorenzo in their most recent outing.
A sequence of reliable showings by the Racing Club defensive players has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their past 6 fixtures combined. During the same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 7.
Team News: Sporting Cristal
Sporting Cristal boss Roberto Mosquera has a full complement, with no fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash thanks to a fully healthy squad to choose from.
Team News: Racing Club
Thanks to a largely available squad, there’s only a single fitness problem for the Racing Club gaffer Juan Pizzi to be concerned with. Marcelo Díaz (Rupture of Outer Meniscus) misses out for this game.
We’ve got the feeling that Sporting Cristal will do well to breach the defence of this Racing Club side who we reckon will be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even contest with a 0-1 winning margin for Racing Club at the end of the match.
Little in this one.
