Ñublense vs La Serena Preview 06/10/2021
In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Nublese host La Serena in the Chilean Primera Division, as both teams look to boost their hopes of breaking into the league’s top seven positions.
Nublese are currently ninth-place in the table but are only three points adrift of the Copa Sudamericana qualification spots for next season. A poor recent run in the league has hampered the home teams attempts at moving back into the league’s top seven.
In fact, a 1-0 win at Colo Colo last time out was only their second league win in 12 outings in the Chilean top-flight.
The result last time out ended a run of high-scoring games for Nublese in the Primera Division, as their previous seven games had all produced over 2.5 goals.
Nublese’s recent home results have been mixed, as they have won just one of their previous six outings on home soil.
However, on the flip-side, a 2-1 defeat by Santiago Wanderers in their last home match ended a nine-game unbeaten run at home in the Primera Division.
La Serena’s hopes of breaking into the Copa Sudamericana spots have taken a hit of late, as the visitors have now won just one of their last 11 outings in the Primera Division.
They head into this game on the back of two straight defeats against Union Espanola and last time out Everton. The poor recent run of form has left Ivo Basey’s team seven points shy of the league’s top seven.
La Serena’s poor recent away record has not helped their cause, as they have won just one of their previous 16 matches in the Chilean top-flight on their travels. They have also failed to win in their last nine away matches.
PlusBet.net predicts that Nublese will come out on top in this encounter by recording a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
3 – 1
