Universidad Catolica to Win
The home team is only five points behind Colo Colo in the first place, but they also have one postponed game in their pocket, so a win in that match would bring them to just two points of first place. Meanwhile, Union Espanola is also having a good season since they are fifth at the moment. So, this game should be very interesting and close, but our prediction is for Universidad Catolica to win since they are on a four-game winning streak and they are playing at home.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Although we have only seen one of the last five duels between Universidad Catolica and Union Espanola go over 2.5 total goals, we expect this to happen in their upcoming duel. The reason lies in the fact that both teams have been very efficient this season and they are leading the league in goals per game – Universidad Catolica with 3.09 goals per game and Union Espanola with 3.04 goals per game.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams have scored in just two of the last five h2h meetings between these two teams, but those were also the last two times that Universidad Catolica and Union Espanola met. Given the fact that both teams scored in 50% of all Universidad Catolica matches this season and that the same thing happened in 65% of Union Espanola games, we expect both teams to score in this game as well.

Universidad Catolica vs Union Espanola preview: Derby of the round
The reigning champions of Chile are in the race to defend the title since they are currently in the second place, five points and a game behind Colo Colo. That being said, Universidad Catolica is in a really good form at the moment since they’ve won four straight matches in Primera Division and five of their last eight league games. So, their fans certainly have a reason to hope that the team can defend their title.
With three wins and two losses in the last five matches, Union Espanola has been a bit inconsistent lately. Still, the team has had a very good season so far since they are currently sitting in the fifth place in the standings. The team is ten points behind Colo Colo in first place, so theoretically they could still win the title if they go on a crazy run in the rest of the season.
