Envigado FC - Yet to be Defeated at Home (LWDLW)
Going in the matchup, Envigado is coming off a defeat against America de Cali (1-0) and a win previously against Atletico FC (6-2). Envigado has produced reasonable performances this season, however, they have lacked when it comes to scoring goals frequently and winning matches comprehensively. Hence, Envigado will have to increase its scoring average, be at home or away. With a goal scoring average of 1.50 goals in the last 10 matches played, Envigado will look to score maximum goals and improve its standing in the points table. However, the home side will also need to work on the conceding average which is about 1.85 goals when playing at home. If Envigado manages to score 2 goals at least, it will be a decent matchup.
Expected Opening Lineup
Joan Parra; Gendry Cuervo, Santiago Noreña, Jhon Banguera, Yeferson Rodallega; Edison López, Felipe Jaramillo, Juan Manuel Zapata, Luis Diaz, Henry Mosquera; Freddy Espinal.
Club Santa Fe - Coming off a Draw Against Union Magdalena (DWLDD)
Going in the matchup, Santa Fe will look to put behind what is done and move forward with a positive and aggressive approach. In the last draw outing, which could be a possible win for Santa Fe, Wilson Morelo failed in scoring back-to-back penalty chances. Hence, Harold Rivera and his boys will be feeling pressure as they get themselves aligned for the upcoming contest. The opening lineup is likely to feature Jose Enamorda in the place of Jeferson Rivera. Talking about the goal scoring average, Santa Fe averages 1.30 goals in the last 10 matches played at home. Hence, Santa Fe will be looking to balance the scoreline tomorrow.
Expected Opening Lineup for Club Santa Fe
José Silva; Kevin Mantilla, José Ajá, Julian Millán; Fabián Viáfara, Fabián Sambueza, Iván Rojas, José Enamorado, Christian Marrugo, Dairon Mosquera; Wilson Morelo.
