Alianza vs C.D. Municipal Limeno: Preview and Prediction

C.D. Municipal Limeno have taken just one point from their last three El Salvador. Primera Division matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. C.D. Municipal Limeno are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Alianza should prove no easy feat either – C.D. Municipal Limeno haven’t won against any El Salvador. Primera Division leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Alianza have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Alianza dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the El Salvador. Primera Division’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Alianza are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Alianza and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Alianza’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, C.D. Municipal Limeno are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when C.D. Municipal Limeno took a point away from Alianza (1-1 draw).

Notably, Alianza’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Alianza have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four El Salvador. Primera Division away matches, including against some much weaker teams than C.D. Municipal Limeno, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to C.D. Municipal Limeno getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though C.D. Municipal Limeno are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Alianza hold the best away record in the El Salvador. Primera Division (W8 D2 L1). C.D. Municipal Limeno’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Alianza’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Alianzans could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Alianza win at 15/2 with bet365.
