The visiting Audax Italiano side should be favourites in this visit to Palestino, as the away team holds a 8 point advantage from their nine league games this season.

Insights:
  • Palestino have yet to win a game at home.
  • Audax Italiano have the fewest conceded goals (5) in Primera Division

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

This stadium uses grass, unlike Audax Italiano's home stadium. The visitors last 50 games on grass have ended in 15 wins, 12 draws and 23 losses.

This is a local derby, usually meaning added tension and importance.
