Both teams are enjoying a good season so far and games like this could be decisive. Here's the preview for Carlos Manucci - Sport Huancayo!
It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only three days ago in the Primera Division. That game was also an away game, at Melgar. 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.
These teams have little in common geographically as Sport Huancayo have to travel 900 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.
Carlos Manucci form and stats
Carlos Manucci's struggle is real here at Estadio Alejandro Villanueva with only 8 points collected from 10 Primera Division games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 1-5-4. With nine home Primera Division games in a row without a win, the Manucci fans could feel they are not getting value for their money. It remains to be seen whether this unfortunate streak, which started after the Deportivo Llacuabamba game long ago, can be stopped today.
Defensively the home team are doing well, with their goalkeeper Manuel Alexander Heredia Rojas not having conceded a league goal in 360 minutes.
Happy days for Manucci in their previous game, a Primera Division match away at Sport Boys that ended with a 4-0 victory. The spoils were shared after 90 minutes before that, a home game that ended 0-0 versus Melgar.
As indicated by the result mentioned above, Manucci played a great game against Sport Boys and beat them comfortably. Expectations are high for this one.
Another home game is coming up fairly shortly for the hosts, as Alianza Lima are coming to town in four days.
Manucci aren't scoring a lot here at Estadio Alejandro Villanueva in the league, with only 9 goals from 10 games. Carlos Manucci's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 14 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.

Huancayo lost the plot completely in their previous game, as mentioned above. They need to recover quickly from that 0-4 beating and focus on this one.
The schedule is very tough for Huancayo now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A Copa Sudamericana game at Coquimbo Unido is waiting in only four days.
The attacking power of Huancayo when travelling is not overwhelming with 9 goals scored from 10 league matches away. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (7 so far). It's worth mentioning that 7 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
