Leonidas Rodriguez’s men had won the reverse fixture, are placed in the upper tier of the league table, have conceded at a rate fewer than one goal per game this season, and on top of all that, are pitted against the dead-last placed team in the competition.

Sabanas vs Jalapa Prediction

Vanegas’s men are placed bottom-most in the table, and have been the worst team in the competition by quite a margin. They have conceded the most number of goals so far in the league, 27, and in return have scored just 10. They were also winless in 19 of their past 21 overall games, and were so in seven of their last eight appearances at this venue.

On the other hand, their counterparts are placed much higher in the table, and have so far posted the third-best defensive stats in the whole contest. They had also recorded a win in the reverse fixture, and in the process kept a clean sheet as well.

Considering these stats, it’s inferred that Jalapa are about to post the three points on the board. However, to be on the safe side, we will opt for the Double Chance. 

Going on though, understand that home teams have never failed to score in h2h clashes, and they have never lost one of those encounters. And importantly, at this ground, Vanegas’s men hold a 100% winning record against this rival, and had won the latest such game 3-0.

In view of this information, it’s estimated that Sabanas will score at least once this Wednesday.
