Reason For La Equidad vs Atletico Huila Betting Tips
La Equidad have had a poor 2016 finishing the Apertura phase of the Columbian Primera A in 17th place with just 19 points from their 20 matches (W4 D7 L9). La Equidad stand 14th in the average points table, with 19th and 20th position facing relegation at the ended of each year, and so are not in immediate danger of relegation, but with plenty of improvement needed if they want to push themselves to be a top 8 playoff playing side.
Atletico Hulia finished an equally unimpressive 16th after an awful “Apertura” phase of the Columbian Primera A. Atletico ended the season far equally as out of form as their opponents, winning only 1 match from their last 5 league fixtures (W1 D1 L3). After a 1-0 defeat away to Envigado in their opening fixture of the season, Atletico Huila bounced back with a 2-1 win at home to set themselves up for this fixture.
Neither team has been particularly impressive so far in 2016, but La Equidad likely come into this as slight favourites based on recent home “form” and the home field advantage. La Equidad have won 1, drawn 3 and lost 1 from their last 5 matches at home, with their defeat being against top 3 side Millonarious. More notable than form, however, is the recent lack of goals from La Equidad at home and Atletico Hulia away respectively. Atletico Hulia haven’t scored more than 1 goal away from home since February and have failed to score in 2 of their last 3 away matches. Similarly, La Equidad have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 home matches. Combining this analysis with the statistics below, we expect under 2.5 goals at 7/10 to be the safe bet for this match with a 0-0 draw at 8/1 with bet365 to be a top value correct score bet.
