Victory for Universidad de Chile
Our first pick is a win for the hosts. Universidad de Chile won all two previous encounters with Melipilla in 2008 and should equally bag all points in this fixture despite being two positions below Melipilla. The hosts have played four games at home, winning two, drawing one and losing once. On the other hand, Melipilla has 2W and 3L in five away games so far.
A low scoreline at full-time
We don’t expect many goals in this fixture at full-time. While two previous encounters between Universidad de Chile and Melipilla had at least three goals, we expect a defensive approach from the hosts who don’t seem to score or concede many goals. The visitors are above Universidad de Chile on the Primera Division table, which should motivate the travelling squad for a good result on matchday.
Both teams to score: No
We don’t think there will be goals on both sides of the pitch. The hosts have two clean sheets in the last five matches and are the best side defensively. Melipilla should equally be a tough opponent in this match, especially in their quest to climb the table and fight for Copa Sudamericana places.
Game Preview: Universidad de Chile looking for the Third Consecutive Victory over Melipilla
Universidad de Chile hopes to get a third victory in three meetings with Melipilla. Our fixture preview looks into the prospect of that happening and also sheds more light on how both sides before match day.
Universidad de Chile
Universidad de Chile is 12th on the Primera Division table with 12 points in nine matches. The hosts have been unimpressive since the start of the season, scoring only seven times and conceding the same number of goals in 9 matches. They have 3W, 3D and 3L so far, which doesn't look good, even though they come to this fixture with a game in hand. For head coach Esteban Valencia, this fixture comes with a chance of bagging a third victory in three meetings with Melipilla. However, a poor record by the Chilean tactician of one point per match after seven games of 2W, 1D and 4L could complicate matters for the manager.
The visitors are 10th on the table with 14 points after 10 games in Chile’s Primera Division. The visiting manager, John Sebastian Armijo will look to get his side the first victory over Universidad de Chile. However, a win on the road for a team that has lost three matches away from home and won only two could come with a painstaking fight. The visitors have scored six and conceded eight goals on the road.
