Deportivo vs Deportivo Chiantla Prediction and Preview – 14.01.18

Deportivo Chiantla have taken just one point from their last three Guatemala. Primera Division de Ascenso matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Deportivo Chiantla 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 Deportivo should prove no easy feat either – Deportivo Chiantla haven’t won against any Guatemala. Primera Division de Ascenso leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Deportivo have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Deportivo 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 Guatemala. Primera Division de Ascenso’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).

Deportivo 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 Deportivo 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 Deportivo’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, Deportivo Chiantla are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Deportivo Chiantla took a point away from Deportivo (1-1 draw).

Notably, Deportivo’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Deportivo have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Guatemala. Primera Division de Ascenso away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Deportivo Chiantla, 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 Deportivo Chiantla getting one against them.

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