A home win is expected from this fixture if the league table is anything to judge by. The Sport Huancayo fans are optimistic that the difference between 5th and Alianza Lima's 15th place in the table will show on the pitch.

Alianza Lima could be less fresh than the hosts in this fixture, as they played a Copa Libertadores game only three sleeps ago. That game, against Estudiantes Merida, was also an away game. It's a tiring schedule for Alianza Lima.

Alianza Lima form and stats

The visitors are W0-D3-L2 on the road this term. That's in the Primera Division. Two points from the last two away games for Alianza, which the math geniuses among you will translate to two draws.

Alianza Lima are travelling again after losing away to Estudiantes Merida in their previous match (2-3). The game before that, in the Primera Division, was lost at home, a 0-2 defeat against UTC Cajamarca.

A huge disappointment for Alianza in their last match (vs Estudiantes Merida). Leading 2-0 the victory seemed almost certain, but a fascinating collapse turned everything around and in the end all was lost in a 2-3 defeat. Late heartbreak for Alianza in the Estudiantes Merida match, as the deciding 2-3 goal came deep into overtime.

The attacking power of Alianza when travelling is not overwhelming with 4 goals scored from 5 league matches away. Alianza Lima struggle to build an impenetrable defensive wall in away matches with a total of 8 goals conceded from these games.

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last ten matches): Huancayo one win, four draws and Alianza Lima five victories. As for goals, seven matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), three games had two or less.
