Ecuador Serie A, Primera Etapa
We have some nice value now on Deportivo Quito, since the odds on them went to around 2.20, compared to the starting 1.80 offered by Sbo, so this is why this bet comes a bit late. Deportivo is the reigning champion of the Ecuadorian Serie A, and will have to start their title defense against the newly promoted Macara. Despite having to play next week a Libertadores match in Mexico, they won't be resting anyone today, and they'll go full strength to kick-off their campaign on a positive note. Not a lot of changes in their squad, compared to last season, as they kept the core of the team, and let's remember the great performance they did in the Segunda Etapa, managing to remain undefeated after the first 12 rounds, with only 4 goals conceded. Goalkeeper Elizaga and top scorer Bevacqua are doubtful for tonight's match, but latest news suggest that the Argentinian striker could play. Macara also managed to keep more or less the same players as last season, but it's a big difference between being competitive in the second division, and showing your skills in the top division. If Deportivo can build on last season's form, they shouldn't have too many worries here, and with the current odds it's worth to try an away win.
