Saprissa vs Herediano Prediction & Match Preview

Saprissa vs Herediano
Costa Rica Primera Division Clausura
Date: Thursday, 21 May 2020
Kick-Off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ricardo Saprissa Aymá (San José).

The reigning Apertura Champions will be traveling to San Jose to meet Saprissa. The hosts have a 3 point lead over the nearest rivals Alajuelense at the top of the table. They have managed to keep a great defensive unit which has conceded only 14 goals so far. This is the best defensive record in the season so far.

Herediano is winless in the last 4 matches on the trot. This spell includes 3 draws which are mainly due to their weak backline. Currently, they are fresh from an away defeat to Limon who is 10th in the points table. With the hosts coming from a draw we can expect a close game.

Saprissa vs Herediano: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Herediano has won 2 and lost once in their last 5 meetings against this opposition.
  • More than 2.5 goals were core in 4 of those 5 matches.
  • Both teams scored goals in the last 4 clashes between them on the trot.
  • Saprissa has never lost to this opposition since 2017.
  • They are 11 matches without a defeat to Herediano at this ground.

Saprissa vs Herediano: Prediction

There will be no shortage of goals when two of the top-scoring sides in the competition go head to head. The recent head to head stats clearly points to both teams scoring once again. Also, the previous league games for both these teams saw them conceding goals too easily.

Both the hosts and visitors are coming from winless runs. Herediano is the only side yet to lose an away match this season. So even though the hosts have never lost at this ground against Herediano, the visitors will be a hard nut to crack. So I am backing this match to be a stalemate.
