Peru Primera Division
Whoever made these odds must have been on crack. Yes, Universitario is playing like crap lately, but surprisingly, it's working. They have lost just one game so far, and with 3 points tonight, they will tie Cienciano on points at the top of the table, at least until tomorrow. They have been greedy with the goals and the entertainment, as they have scored only 7 goals in 10 matches, and only Cobresol have a worse attack than that, but even so, Universitario is gathering points. Only the away games seem to be a problem, as they haven't won a single match out of Monumental, while at home they are 4-1-0. Few goals, but great efficency, and their only draw came with Juan Aurich. Cienciano are the surprising leaders of the Descentralizado, but I'm sure that won't last, as a typical home team can't have many hopes. They have been helped by a good start, but slowly, they have been losing steam: narrow wins at home with Cesar Vallejo and Inti Gas, a 2-2 draw with Union Comercio, and 1 defeat (Cristal) + 1 draw (Cobresol) on the road. Universitario is also in a small crisis, and in the past weeks they haven't always trained normally, due to some debts towards the players. But, that didn't stop them from playing normally so far, and there are reports that everything has been solved yesterday. Last time Cienciano took a point in Lima was in 2008, and their last win goes all the way back to 2003, so anything else than another home win tonight is highly unlikely. GL!
