Sp. Luqueno vs Guarani (By: Dajkula)
Sportivo Luqueno welcomes Guarani in round 6 of the Paraguayan Apertura. The hosts are placed as favorites in this clash though I don`t find much reason why. I also don`t expect these odds to hold.
Luqueno is the team on 10`th place with 4 points and 1-1-3 so far. They played better matches away from home so far while on home ground they were not up to par. Sure they faced Olimpia which crushed them 1:5 but they also faced the newcomers Sportivo San Lorenzo which crushed them 0:3. The low places are common for Luqueno in the past seasons and they have been flirting with relegation. They have one of the lowest budgets and I can see them progressing much this year.
Guarani somehow has the same issue as Luqueno. They don`t have the finances to match the biggest teams of the league and it has become a problem. Their market value is 3 times less than Olimpia or Libertad and it has started to affect them. The results in the previous season were really bad and they just finished in the middle of the table in both Apertura and Clausura. Olimpia and Libertad had good times against Guarani lately.
Guarani had a not so good start to the season but they faced Cerro Porteno at home and lost 0:1. There was a response however and Guarani showed his teeth beating the strong Libertad 3:1, Nacional away with 2:0 and the newcomers Lorenzo with 3:1 away. In the last round, again, they showed that they are not as strong as they used to. They lost at home to unpredictable Capiata 1:2 but they were unlucky to concede in the 94`th minute. The coach was satisfied with the performance in the second half none the less. So, Guarani is worse at home than away. They are 2 for 2 away from home where they scored 5 goals while conceding once.
Luqueno has been demolished on home ground and they lost 2 and drew one with 3:10 gd.
An interesting fact is the recent h2h which is heavily in favor of the visitors. Guarani won the last 6 times they visited this ground. I definitely see Guarani as the favorite in this game.
There is no news about the lineup. Will add later.
