Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Santiago Wanderers v Unión Española game - plus the latest match odds.
Santiago Wanderers will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 3-0 Campeonato Nacional defeat last time out to Universidad de Chile.
It has been seldom in recent times where Santiago Wanderers have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Caturros have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 11 goals during that time.
Heading into this fixture, Santiago Wanderers haven't won against Unión Española in their last 7 league matches.
Unión Española go into this clash following a 3-2 Campeonato Nacional win versus Unión La Calera in their previous fixture.
Demonstrating their partiality to action-packed matches, goals have been seen as many as 21 times in the prior six matches in which Unión Española have taken to the pitch, yielding a mean average of 3.5 goals each clash. Opposing teams have hit 7 of these goals. We will just have to see if that trend can be continued on here.
Looking at their past form shows that Unión Española:
- are undefeated by Santiago Wanderers when they've played them away from home in the last 3 matches in the league.
- are undefeated in their last 3 away league matches.
Head to head
A review of past results between these clubs going back to 22/11/2015 shows that these fixtures have not been good ones for Santiago Wanderers. They have not managed to register any victories at all while Unión Española have just been stronger than them, finishing as winners in 67% of those games played.
A sum of 13 goals were scored between them in these games, with 4 of them from Caturros and 9 for Rojos de Santa Laura. That’s an average goals per game of 2.17.
Team News: Santiago Wanderers
Santiago Wanderers manager Miguel Ramírez has no fitness worries to speak of before this match thanks to a completely healthy group ready to go.
Team News: Unión Española
With a fully healthy group available to select from, Unión Española boss Ronald Fuentes does not have any fitness concerns at all coming into this match.
We think that Santiago Wanderers will need to apply a lot of pressure to see themselves scoring against this Unión Española outfit who will likely get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’ve gone for a hard-fought 0-1 win for Unión Española at the end of this one.
There should be little in it.
