Perez Zeledon vs Herediano (By: Dajkula)
Perez Zeledon welcomes Herediano in round 11 of the Costarican Clausura. Herediano has 2 games more to play so they could jump right up the table. But this season nothing comes easy for Herediano and they are struggling to show a decent game.
Perez Zeledon is the third team of the Clausura with 19 points and 5-4-1 so far. They have made investments to play in the quadrangular this season and possibly win the league. With the already decent composition that finished fifth, they brought in some good players like Néstor Mena, Andrey Francis, Jorge Ramírez, José Sánchez, César Elizondo, and Luciano Barroca.
Zeledon has lost just once this season and that was against Saprissa 2:3. They have a big issue of not playing at home as their regular venue is renovated. Despite that, they are showing good games even though they are practically always visitors. They play their matches at the stadium of Alajuelense.
The form is good for Zeledon as they won the last 4 matches. An important midfielder Rodriguez(27-3) is suspended for this game.
Herediano won the last Apertura but they started this Clausura a bit sluggish. They seem to be a bit complacent and they have been far from convincing. Being placed 9`th with 11 points and 3-2-3 so far is far from good. They already changed their coach in January when Hernan Medford took over but with no great shift in momentum. Herediano already lost this season to UCR, Grecia, and Limon. Sides that are a bit under the quality of Zeledon I would say. Away from home Herediano continues their weak games. They won just twice in the Apertura and now they played 0:0 with Guadalupe and lost to Limon 1:0. They played just two matches away from home.
Herediano will have a tough schedule in a short time as in 5 day time they play the CONCACAF match with Atlanta. They might have one eye on that.
Herediano is missing the midfielder Marin(21-4).
Zeledon has 4-2-2 from the last 8 against Herediano and know how to handle them. They are in better form and I find them closer to taking the 3 points.
