Alajuelense form and stats

The away team, who have the most scored goals (31) in Primera Division, have been very comfortable on their travels so far, racking up 5 wins, 3 draws and only 0 losses in the Primera Division. Things are running smoothly for Alajuelense who hasn't tasted defeat in their last 21 matches, regardless of venue and tournament. Their last defeat was against San Carlos. The away team travel with confidence. Not since the San Carlos game have they lost an away game, meaning Alajuelense has taken points from ten away matches in a row.

Alajuelense might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Atlanta United proved too strong as Alajuelense slumped to a 0-1 defeat in front of their own fans at Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto. A 1-1 draw was the result before that, hosting Herediano in the Primera Division.

The schedule is very tough for Alajuelense now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A CONCACAF Champions League game at Atlanta United is waiting in only four days.

The Alajuelense manager A. Carevic Ghelfi has got the team scoring on the road, with 17 away goals in 8 league matches. It's worth mentioning that 9 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (5 so far).
