Once Caldas form and stats

Three Liga BetPlay home games done for Once Caldas, who are not happy collecting 3 points from these matches.

Times are rough for the home team, having gone 275 minutes without scoring a league goal. M. Garcia Torres was the last player to find the net.

Caldas shared the glory with La Equidad in their last match, an away game that ended all square 0-0. Preceding that match was the home game against Atlético Nacional that was lost 0-1.

A painful moment in the game against La Equidad was the missed penalty kick from M. García in the 87th minute. A goal there would obviously have changed the match and probably the outcome.

This is expected to be a close game, with Caldas perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Once Caldas as a small favourite), we find seven games. Once Caldas has won two of these, drawn two and lost three.

There will be little rest for Caldas after this match as they are travelling to Deportivo Pereira for a Liga BetPlay game in only four days.

Caldas has scored 4 league goals at home this season, in 3 matches. 4 goals have been conceded.

Deportivo Pasto form and stats

Deportivo Pasto are doing rather OK so far in their away games in the Liga BetPlay, having played 3 games and collected 4 points (1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss).

There were no winners in Pasto's previous match, a Liga BetPlay home game that ended 2-2 vs Jaguares de Córdoba (placed 9th). Prior to that match, the Pasto manager D. Corredor Hurtado faced defeat when travelling to Millonarios and losing 1-3.

The draw against Jaguares de Córdoba came from a losing position. The Pasto manager D. Corredor Hurtado brought on R. Vanegas as a substitute and the player scored to make the scores level.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Pasto playing away and similar expectations, we found 13 relevant matches. Results were two Deportivo Pasto wins, six draws and five defeats.

A quick return to home after this game, as Pasto are hosting América de Cali in the Liga BetPlay only three days away.

The visiting Pasto have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 3 goals from 3 games. Pasto have conceded 4 goals in these away matches.

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last ten matches): Caldas three wins, one draw and Deportivo Pasto six victories. As for goals, seven matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), three games had two or less.
