Curico Unido - Looking to Cover the One Goal Deficit (LLLLW)
Curico Unido did enter the Libertadores qualification with zeal and determination. However, its recent form is completely in turmoil as they are coming off four consecutive matches. In the previous fixture of the Chilean Primera Division, Curicó lost to Universidad de Chile (1-3). Diego Coelho scored the only goal for Curico in the 80th minute of play. Bechtholdt, Merlo, De La Fuente, and Barrioes looked completely off-color as they were on the receiving end from Universidad de Chile. Curico has also scored 6 goals in its last 5 outings, but has lost 4 of the last 5 matches. Hence, Curico is likely to allow goals from the opposition in the upcoming matchup.
