Saprissa vs Herediano by Dajkula
There is not much in recent h2h matches to imply a lot of goals here but these teams certainly know how to score. Herediano is leading the league with 32 points and after a light start to the league are in full swing lately winning the last 6 games and scoring at least 2 goals in all of those games. They have 10-2-1 so far and 28:12 goal difference. Saprissa was the only undefeated team till the last round when they lost to Carmelita 2:1 but conceded both goals from penalties. Saprissa has 28 points and 8-4-1 so far and if they loose today they will be 7 points behind Herediano which could be crucial to determine the winter champion. Saprissa is playing strong defense in their away games but at home it is a different story. A very open football they play often amounts to goals from both sides and the result that got my attention is the 4:4 draw against Alajualense. Alajuelense has a poor attack this season and rarely scores more then 1 goal a game so that fact speeks volumes of Saprissa`s defense. In every of Saprissa`s home game they managed to score twice at least while only one time have not conceded. 5 of those 6 home matches have gone over 3.5 goals which makes Saprissa the most attractive home team in the league.
There are a couple of things that might question the bet on goals today. Costarica played yesterday and beat Mexico 2:1 with 2 players from both teams involved in that match. Those that are absent today are important but ther is a lot of quality in both teams to overcome that.
Saprissa is missing the midfielder Tejeda and the defender Umana while Herediano is missing the midfielder Cubero and striker Nunez. The odds are rising on over but I will still take it.
