Cartagines Preview – Can Cartagines continue improvement?

Three wins out of their last four matches in the Costa Rican Primera Division has resulted in Cartagines moving themselves up the domestic top flight table to within touching distance of the top four, and they’ll be seeking to break into the top four position at the expense of Alajuelense on Tuesday evening.

Recent wins against Santos (3-1 away), Universitarios (2-1 at home) and Municipal Grecia (3-2 away) have helped lift Tuesday’s hosts up into 5th place and level on points with 4th placed Jicaral ahead of this important clash with Alajuelense.

Cartagines have also won their last three home matches on the trot with victories over San Carlos, Limon and Universitarios but they’re expected to come under close scrutiny from their visitors and as 5 of Cartagines’s last 7 home matches have seen both teams score, the goals market appeals here.

Our betting suggestion:
Over 2.5 goals

Alajuelense Preview – Can Alajuelense close gap at top?

Tuesday’s visitors, Alajuelense, currently sit in 2nd spot and four points behind the current Primera Division leaders, Deportivo Saprissa, prior to their trip to Cartagines, but Alajuelense will also be in confident mood as they signed off with a resounding victory last time out in the domestic top flight.

Alajuelense handed out a 6-1 thrashing at home against Universitarios and they’ve suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 13 matches overall in the Costa Rican top flight, so they too will be confident that they can take something out of this upcoming clash.

However, with just 2 wins out of their last 11 away matches, Alajuelense look far from a guaranteed three-point haul here, so the goals market may again be the best option for this encounter as 5 of Alajuelense’s last 7 away matches have also seen both teams score.
