Football tips – Deportivo Carchá vs Deportivo Mixco – Guatemala 15.01.18

Deportivo Mixco 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 Mixco 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 Carchá should prove no easy feat either – Deportivo Mixco 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 Carchá have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Deportivo Carchá 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 Carchá 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 Carchá 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 Carchá’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 Mixco 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 Mixco took a point away from Deportivo Carchá (1-1 draw).

Notably, Deportivo Carchá’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Deportivo Carchá 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 Mixco, 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 Mixco getting one against them.

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