Universitarios Preview – Can Universitarios climb off bottom spot?

Wednesday’s hosts, Universitarios, will head into this basement battle against second from bottom outfit, Santos, on the back of a 3-match losing streak but they stand a decent chance of turning things around on home turf at their Estadio Jorge Hernán Cuty Monge.

Despite recent losses to Cartagines, Municipal Grecia and Alajuelense – the latter being a heavy 6-1 thrashing away from home, Universitarios possess a reasonable looking record at home with stats of 3-2-2 10/9 which includes just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches in their own backyard.

That loss was to Municipal Grecia 4-0 but recent wins against Limon 2-1, Perez Zeledon 2-0 and a 3-0 win over Guadalupe should give them confidence; however, this is still a basement clash so goals may be the best option here, especially as 5 of Universitarios’s 7 home matches have seen over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Santos Preview – Can Santos break drought?

Second from bottom outfit, Santos, are just one league position and 2 points above their hosts, Universitarios, ahead of this battle of the basement dwellers due to a poor sequence of results which has seen the visitors fail to win any of their last 9 matches overall.

This 9-match slump includes losing 6 of these 9 matches so confidence is not particularly high amongst the Santos camp right now, especially as the visitors have lost 7 of their last 10 matches on their travels in the Primera Division.

In addition, 7 of Santos’s last 10 away matches have also resulted in over 2.5 goals so the goal market looks to be the best option with both teams keen to improve their situation at the foot of the Primera Division.
