Grecia vs Guanacasteca Preview 13/10/2021
The Costa Rica Primera División continues this week and on Wednesday the 13th of October we have a meeting between Municipal Grecia and AD Guanacasteca.
The game will take place at the Estadio Allen Riggioni Suárez and the hosts begin this round of fixtures in 5th place on 21 points while the visitors are in 6th place on 20 points, so there is not much to separate the teams.
Municipal Grecia come into the match on the back of a 3-1 loss at Jicaral on the weekend. It was a disappointing defeat at a team below them in the table and Municipal Grecia found themselves 2-0 down at half-time.
They got a goal back with 14 minutes of the game remaining but conceded a third goal in the 90th minute.
That result ended a run of 3 games without defeat for Municipal Grecia in the Costa Rica Primera División. They have recorded victories at home over San Carlos and Santos de Guápiles, both of which were entertaining 3-2 wins.
In the match against San Carlos, Municipal Grecia came back from 2-0 down to win in the final 13 minutes of the game.
Trends show Municipal Grecia have not lost in 8 of their last 9 home games in the Costa Rica Primera División. They have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 3 home league fixtures, with both teams scoring in their last 4 on home soil.
AD Guanacasteca travel to the Estadio Allen Riggioni Suárez on the back of a 1-1 draw at Guadalupe. Both goals of the game were scored in the second half but much like their opponents, AD Guanacasteca would have been hoping to take maximum points against a team below in the table.
However, that result extends a good unbeaten run for AD Guanacasteca, who are undefeated in their last 8 matches. They have won 5 of those 8 games, all of which have come in the Costa Rica Primera División.
Their away record shows they are undefeated in their last 3 on the road and have tasted defeat only once in their last 12 away matches.
Trends show AD Guanacasteca have won just 1 of their last 6 away matches in the Costa Rica Primera División and they have seen both teams score in 5 of their last 6 on the road.
Team news and Municipal Grecia have been struggling to score goals in comparison to the teams around them and will need the likes of Kenneth Vargas and Luis Rodríguez to find the back of the net.
AD Guanacasteca have one of the league’s top goal scorer in their ranks and Anthony Contreras will be hoping to add to his tally of 7 goals in this match.
We expect this to be an exciting game as both teams have been scoring and conceding goals of late. However, it is difficult to split them and a draw with both teams scoring seems a likely outcome.
