Diriangen FC vs Deportivo Walter Ferretti Prediction

The Caciques may have lost their latest fixture, but keep in mind that they were unbeaten in nine of their preceding ten overall games, and remained so in 22 of their prior 24 match-ups. Importantly, at home, they have lost just twice since April of 2019.

On the other hand, Flavio Da Silva’s men had lost three of their former four overall fixtures, and were winless in nine of their past fourteen matches. On the road, they had lost their latest trip 4-1, and were winless in five of their previous seven away fixtures.

Moreover, Caciques are on a two-match winning run against this opponent, and a four-game unbeaten run. They had also remained unbeaten in six of their past seven such match-ups, and were invincible in seven of the former eight clashes at this stadium. 

Taking all these observations into account, and the desperation of Dirinagen to get back into the top-two of the table (which would allow them a direct entry into the semi finals), they are expected to win this Thursday. However, do note that the visitors are recent champions of the competition, and they too are placed comfortably high in the table.

The team will surely have ambitions to finish in the podium, and more importantly, a place in the playoff semis. Considering that the top-four teams in standings are taking on each other this match-day, it’s a great chance for the guests to make a significant climb. As such, anticipate a competitive encounter, and goals from both teams.
