These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your betslip before confirming.

Rentistas to keep unbeaten away record

Although neither of these sides are in anything like good form we are making the prediction that this match ends in a draw, which won’t be amazing for either Villa Espanola or Rentistas. Rentistas only sit two points better off than their hosts with four points but the more crucial point to focus on is that Rentistas have played two away games and have taken points from both – one win and a draw – whilst Villa Espanola have drawn two of three home games. Given that the last two meetings at Villa Espanola’s ground have ended all square, we see little reason why that won’t be the case again.

Rentistas to give up half time lead

When it comes to making tips, backing a draw is often seen as ambitious. With that in mind, it’s fair to say backing a HT lead followed by a FT draw is really out there but the odds are strong. We think it’s very plausible that Rentistas go into the interval in front only to crumble to pressure from Villa Espanola after the break. If you were forced to back someone to win, you’d likely opt for Rentistas given that Villa Espanola haven’t beaten them since 2008 but if Rentistas can get their noses in front early, they’ll likely get nervy as the match moves into the latter stages.

An uninspiring 1-1 draw coming up

Our first two tips have focussed on the match being a draw. Our final prediction is no different expect we’re going down the route of a correct score – specifically, we think it will end 1-1. Both sides are averaging less than a goal scored per game and are lacking defensively too. It’s a terrible combination but they both have it so it all becomes rather irrelevant. Two of the last three meetings have ended 1-1 as well so it is a score that carries value.

Villa Espanola vs Rentistas: An early battle at the bottom

Villa Espanola

You have to go back to November in order to find evidence of a Villa Espanola win and their head to head record against Rentistas hardly brings confidence that their poor home form is about to end. If they are to win this game they’ll be looking to the experienced midfield duo of Jonathan Rios and Mathias Riquero to help them establish a foothold. From there the goal scoring pressures will fall on the shoulders of 21-year-old Denis Olivera; he has two goals from five outings so far this season.

Rentistas

There aren’t many teams that have made a worse start than Rentistas to this season but they’ll be pleased to be facing one this week in the shape of Villa Espanola and they do have a decent, if not spectacular, record against their hosts. The biggest hurdle they’ll have to overcome in order to record a victory is finding someone to put the ball in the net; their main attacking threats are youngsters – like Franco Perez, 19, and Salomon Rodriguez, 21 – but nobody in their squad has scored more than one goal so far.
