Tip Reasoning

Universitario, champions of the Apertura phase of the Peruvian Primera Division and 9 points clear of 2nd placed Sporting Cristal, seem a completely different team after their opening 7 fixtures of the Clausura phase, with only 5 points taken from a possible 21 (W1 D2 L4). That’s because Universitario have been playing hugely different lineups and giving reserve players a chance to gain experience in the Peruvian top flight. Universitario have already qualified for the 2017 Copa Sudamericana and thanks their dominance over the league in the Apertura phase, despite this rocky patch in form, Universitario still have a comfortable 6 point cushion keeping them within the top 4 and the playoff positions in the overall standings.

Real Garcilaso sit middle of the table both after their first 7 fixtures of the Clausura phase, having won 3, drawn 1 and lost 3, but also in the overall standings thanks to their consistency this season Real Garcilaso are neither at threat from relegation or particularly hopeful of reaching the playoffs.

Universitario come into this having picked up 4 points from their last 2 matches (W1 D1) as they slowly filter back in their more experienced 1st team players, such as goalkeeper Caceda and top goalscorer Diego Guastavino, in order to secure their playoff position. Real Garcilaso, however, have not been the ideal opponents for Universitario over recent years. Real Garcilaso are unbeaten against Universitario in 6 consecutive fixtures, winning 5 and drawing 1. Nonetheless, Real Garcilaso have not been impressive away from home this season with only 1 win out of their last 9 on the road (W1 D3 L5) and we feel Universidad’s home field advantage and return to a 1st team lineup will be enough to clinch this match. Combining that analysis with the statistics below, we expect both teams to score to be the safe bet with Universitario to win 2-1 at 15/2 with bet365 to be a top value correct score bet.
