Curridabat vs Turrialba football tips

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

Curridabat have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Curridabat 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 Costa Rica. 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).

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

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

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