Universidad Central - Backing Themselves to Win or Draw the Fixture (LWDLD)
Universidad Central will be now playing away from home, and that’s pretty interesting as they haven’t been on song, and away fixtures will be testing their nerves. In the last game against Estudiantes Merida, Central managed to strike a goal courtesy of a penalty; otherwise, their attack hasn’t been quite impressive. Though they have scored 5 goals in their last 5 games, they are likely to struggle in the upcoming matchup. However, they can take confidence from the win over Caracas FC, where Caracas was playing at home, and Esli Garcia and Yuxer Requena scored goals in the first half.
