An important duel in the bottom section of the Primera Division, with both Limón and UCR experiencing more worry than joy. This match is a classic "six-pointer" with the home team placed 10th and the visitors in 12th place.

UCR form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for UCR, who have the most conceded goals (36) in Primera Division, so far with only 1 point returning home. The records show 0-1-7 (win-draw-lose). With the UCR losing streak of four defeats in a row, regardless of arena, optimism is low and sinking. Three might be a magic number, but there's been little wizardry in UCR's last three away games as they have all been lost.

The manager M. Solano Abarca was unhappy after their last game, a Primera Division match played at their home ground Estadio Ecólogico de la UCR. UCR suffered a 1-3 loss to Santos de Guapiles (placed 11th). A 1-6 defeat away at Alajuelense before that.

After this away game UCR return home for a Primera Division game against Herediano. That game is only three sleeps after this.

The visitors have scored 7 goals from 8 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. The UCR defense is as useful as an ashtray on a motorcycle, having conceded 27 goals in their away games.

Head 2 Head

Limón and UCR have met before this season: UCR - Limón 2-1. Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: three - three - four (Limón wins - draws - UCR wins). As for goals, five matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), five had two or less.
