Once Caldas and Deportes Tolima to Draw at Half Time
Since we don’t expect this game to have a winner at the end, we also expect Once Caldas and Deportes Tolima to be tied at half time, as is often the case for matches that end in a draw.
After all, three of the previous four h2h duels between Once Caldas and Deportes Tolima have been tied at half time, so we can see that being the case once again on Tuesday.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
Three of the last five head-to-head duels between Once Caldas and Deportes Tolima have gone under 2.5 total goals and we can see that happening in their next game too.

Once Caldas vs Deportes Tolima preview: Derby of the round
After a great start of the new season in Primera A, Once Caldas slowed down a bit lately since they have two wins, two draws, and two losses in the last six games in Apertura. Despite this, the team is still fourth in the standings, which is a great result for them, and if they can make it to the playoffs that will be a real success for them.
The defending champions of Apertura and the finalists of Clausura last season are going strong now as well. Deportes Tolima is currently third in the standings and they seem poised to make it to the playoffs once again, which is hardly surprising for a team that’s been doing great the last couple of seasons.
