The league table in Primera Division tells a story about these teams so far, with UTC Cajamarca leading Academia Cantolao by 4 points. Match preview to follow:

This should be an interesting game with lots of spark and energy as both teams are well rested since they last saw competitive action. Game on!

This stadium uses artifical turf, unlike Academia Cantolao's home stadium. The visitors last eight games on artifical turf have ended in 2 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses.

Academia Cantolao have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 800 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.

UTC Cajamarca form and stats

When playing at home in the Primera Division, UTC Cajamarca have managed 3 wins, 1 draw and suffered 1 defeat from 5 games.

It's back home for Cajamarca, who return with a good feeling about themselves after beating Alianza Lima away with the result 2-0. K. Aparicio and M. Guevgeozián found the net in that victory. Before that game, the 2-1 home victory against Sport Boys.

UTC Cajamarca have proved capable of finding the net in their games here at Estadio Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería with 8 goals in 5 league matches. Cajamarca's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 7 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.

Academia Cantolao form and stats

As the visiting team in Primera Division matches, Academia Cantolao have produced an overall stat of 2-1-2 so far.

This game can not go any worse than the last one, a Primera Division home defeat versus Melgar with 0-2 on the scoreboard. Ahead of that match was the away draw versus Real Garcilaso that ended 1-1.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Academia Cantolao playing away and similar expectations, we found four relevant matches. Results were one Academia win, two draws and one defeat.

The schedule is very tough for Academia Cantolao now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A Primera Division game at Melgar is waiting in only two days.

Academia are scoring more than one goal per away game on average, having accumulated 6 away goals from 5 games (in the league). Academia's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 8 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

Numbers for the last six meetings between these two teams are: zero wins for Cajamarca, three draws and three wins for Academia Cantolao. Over 2,5 goals: two times; under 2,5 goals: four games.
