They are much better at home with 5-0-3 and 14-9 on goal difference.

El National have 3-1-1 from their last five games, and they are starting to take more points away as well. This indicates a better form at the home team, while Emelec have let in goals in 5 of their 7 away games this season. The history shows that even if both teams have scored in just 8 of 21 meetings since 2007, 6 of their last 9 meetings have ended with both scoring. With El National in a good shape these days, and Emelec often let in goals away, I can see both teams will score in this match.
