Very important shoot-out in the bottom section of the Liga BetPlay, with both Patriotas Boyacá and Deportivo Cali going through more concern than happiness. This fixture is a real "six-pointer" with the home team placed 18th and the visiting team in 19th spot.

Insights:
  • Patriotas Boyacá have won significantly more corners at home than away.

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only three days ago in the Copa Colombia. That game was also an away game, at Fortaleza CEIF. It will be interesting to see if they are fully ready and rested for this match, and/or if some changes in the lineup is necessary.
