Despite their good league campaign so far this season, the home sides form has slipped slightly of late, as they have failed to win in their last three matches in the Primera Division. That poor run of form includes defeats by Universidad de Chile and last time out Union Espanola.
Union La Calera needs to get back to winning ways on home soil too if they are to continue their title challenge, as they have taken just one point from their last two home matches in the Chilean Primera Division.
The visit of Santiago Wanderers is a welcome one, as Union La Calera have won their last three meetings with the team from the nation’s capital.
Santiago Wanderers are enduring a nightmare campaign in the Chilean Primera Division. Not only have the visitors failed to win any of their 15 league matches, but they have also picked up just two points for their efforts so far.
Last time out they suffered a 2-1 home defeat against Union Espanola. The loss followed a more promising 2-2 draw against La Serena.
Santiago Wanderers biggest problem in the Chilean top-flight this season has been scoring goals, as they have found the net just nine times in the Primera Division.
Needless to say, their recent away form has not been great either, as the visitors have suffered nine straight league defeats on their travels.
PlusBet.net predicts another difficult evening for the visitors in this one, with Union La Calera recording a win in a high-scoring clash.
