Once Caldas to Win

Although Once Caldas did not impress last season, they are a long-standing member of Primera A. Meanwhile, Union Magdalena is only back to the top flight of Colombian football after three seasons.

With that in mind, our prediction is for Once Caldas to win the game. After all, they are the better team on paper and they will play at home. Also, previous two meetings between these two teams were both won by the home team and we expect that tradition to continue.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

One of the last two h2h duels between Once Caldas and Union Magdalena has gone over 2.5 total goals, but that won’t mean much for their next game since it was nearly three years ago.

However, Once Caldas averaged 2.40 goals per game in Primera A Clausura last season, which is among the higher averages in the league. Also, Union Magdalena averaged 2.92 goals per game in the second part of Primera B last season. So, we expect to see some goals here.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Just like with our last prediction, the recent h2h record doesn’t mean much since the games were played three seasons ago. Still, one of two meetings between Once Caldas and Union Magdalena ended with both teams scoring, which is our next prediction.

After all, both teams scored in 55% of matches played by Once Caldas in Primera A Clausura last season and that number indicates that we can expect both teams to score in this match.

Once Caldas vs Union Magdalena preview: Can the guests put up a fight?

Once Caldas

The team from Manizales failed to reach the playoffs in both tournaments last season in Primera A, finishing Torneo Apertura in 15th and Torneo Finalizacion in 17th place in the standings. So, it hasn’t been the best season for them and the fans are certainly hoping for something more than 17th spot in aggregate standings this season.

Union Magdalena

After failing to secure promotion through the playoffs in the first part of the season in Primera B, Union Magdalena did exactly that in the Clausura part of the season. Union Magdalena was fifth in the regular season standings, but they managed to finish at the top of their playoffs group, edging out Fortaleza by just one point.
