Competition: Venezuela Primera Division
Competition: Sun 18.October
Match begins: 20:00 (UTC)
Venue: Estadio General José Antonio Páez

An important duel in the bottom section of the Primera Division, with both Portuguesa and Yaracuyanos experiencing more worry than joy. This match is a classic "six-pointer" with the home team placed 16th and the visitors in 13th place.

There has not been much time to rest for the guests, as they played a Primera Division game only four days ago. That game was also an away game, at Estudiantes Merida. 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.

Yaracuyanos form and stats

The Primera Division season is young and Yaracuyanos have only just started going through their travel schedule, with 3 away games done and still no victory. 2 draws and 1 defeat so far.

It's the second away game in a row for Yaracuyanos, but there's smiles all around after the 2-1 victory versus Estudiantes Merida (placed 6th) in the Primera Division last time out. Preceding that game, the 2-2 draw paying a visit to Deportivo La Guaira.

World class coaching! That was the thoughts of manager J. Cabello when J. Sosa scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 46th minute. Late drama in the previous game, when J. Sosa scored the winning goal one minutes into stoppage time to defeat Estudiantes Merida.

Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Yaracuyanos have scored 3 goals in 3 league games away. As opposed to that, Yaracuyanos have seen the ball go into their own net 4 times on the road.
