Sportivo Luqueño form and stats

Sportivo Luqueño have only collected 6 points from their away games in the Division 1, after 2-0-7 (9 played). Sportivo love their trips these days, as their two previous away games have resulted in victories.

Sportivo's last game was the home draw against Sol de America (3-3). Drawing 3-3 against Sol de America after 90 minutes last time out was very disappointing after leading the match 3-0. Their manager B. Maciel needs to evaluate why the team couldn't defend their result. A mental match with an abundance of goals last time out for Sportivo, as mentioned above. 6 goals in that fun game, will this match be as much fun?

Ahead of that match was the victory versus Cerro Porteno at their stadium, the result 1-0.

There's been a serious shortage of goals from Sportivo Luqueño's away games in the league this season with only 4 goals from 9 matches. It's worth mentioning that 3 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. 13 goals have been conceded by Sportivo in these games.
