Deportivo Cali - Coming off a Win Against Jaguares (WLWDL)
Going in the matchup, Deportivo Cali is coming off a fine win against CD Jaguares (1-0) in Colombian Cup Round 3. Jhon Vasquez scored the opening goal for Cali and then the home side managed to keep the scoreline in their favor. With no win for Cali at home yet, the pressure will be on them. Secondly, the chance of slipping in relegation will be tough for Jorge Luis Pinto and his men. In the last five matches played, Cali has only scored 4 goals across all competitions, averaging just 0.8 goals. In order to escape the relegation and further insult at home, Cali will be looking to strike back at the opposition and win this time around at home.
Expected Opening Lineup for Deportivo Cali
Kevin Dawson; Aldair Gutiérrez, Kevin Riascos, Germán Mera, Juan Tello; Fabry Castro, Yimmi Congo; Kevin Velasco, Jhon Vasquez, Daniel Mantilla; Kevin Viveros.
La Equidad - Has Drawn Three of the Last Five Matches (DLDDL)
Going in the matchup, La Equidad is coming off a draw against Atletico Nacional (0-0), in which Equidad had just 40% ball possession. Secondly, Equidad did manage to block two shots, keeping the scoreline (0-0). For Equidad, Arboleda, Bueno, and Chaverra were players in action, and apart from them the unit didn’t click as it would have expected. In the last five matches played, La Equidad has scored just 3 goals, averaging 0.6 goals per game. In contrast to the scoring average, Equidad has conceded 6 goals in the last 5 matches. Equidad will be hoping to repeat the performance from the last outing against Cali. However, winning comprehensively will be tough.
