Deportivo Maldonado to Win
The simple fact that Villa Espanola is without a win after nine games in the Uruguayan Apertura is enough for us to bet on the guests. After all, Deportivo Maldonado is eighth in the league right now and they’ve been doing well this season. That being said, both teams have a couple of wins in their last five head-to-head matches, but Deportivo is doing much better at the moment that we have to support them with our prediction.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Even though we’ve only seen these two team go over 2.5 total goals in one of their last five meetings, they went off in that game and combined for seven goals. In addition to this, Deportivo Maldonado is averaging 2.89 goals per game in Apertura this season and Villa Espanola averages 2.56 goals per game in the league, so they should combine for at least three goals in their next duel.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams have scored in the last two h2h meetings between Villa Espanola and Deportivo Maldonado, but this didn’t happen in the three games they’ve played before that. Still, both teams have scored in 56% of all Deportivo Maldonado games this season in Primera Division, while the same is true for 56% of all Villa Espanola matches in the league as well.
Villa Espanola vs Deportivo Maldonado preview: Is it time for Villa Espanola to win a game?
While the home team is still looking for the first win of the season, the guests are doing well in Apertura so far. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at both teams:
The team from Montevideo is still without a win in Apertura after nine rounds have passed and they’ve been stuck to the bottom of the standings with three points from those nine matches. It’s clear that Villa Espanola is destined to fight for survival this season in Primera Division and they desperately need a win to get some confidence for the future.
Unlike their upcoming rivals, Deportivo Maldonado is doing well in Apertura this season. Their form is far from spectacular, but the team is sitting in the eighth place in the standings quite comfortably. In the first nine rounds of the season, Deportivo Maldonado managed to win three times, along with three draws and three losses. If they can keep that going, it will be a respectable finish for them at the end of the Uruguayan Apertura.
