Jaguares de Cordoba - Pressure Back on the Home Side (LDLDW)
After kicking off the season with a draw against Santa Fe (2-2), Jaguares felt quite confident. However, the defeat against Chico FC (1-0) has put them under pressure. Though the upcoming contest will be a home fixture for Jaguares, the pressure is likely to be on them only. Against Santa Fe at home, Pablo Rojas and Julian Guevara managed to score and score equalizers. With a ball possession of just 43% against Chico FC, Jaguares certainly struggled in settling down. Jaguares has an average of 73.33% games resulting in 2.5 goals in its last 15 outings. Hence, the upcoming fixture is likely to be a low scoring one for the home side.

Atletico Nacional - Has Registered Back to Back Draws (DLDDW)
Going in the matchup, Atletico Nacional is coming off two consecutive draws. In the last game against Rionegro Aguilas (0-0), Nacional’s defenders were spot on. Aguirre, Banguero, and Palacio produced decent individual tackles and long balls. Though Nacional had no shots on target, it managed to deliver sufficiently for a draw.
