Deportivo Quito - Manta

Ecuador Serie A, Segunda Etapa

Once again, I'm going with Deportivo Quito. I still trust them, despite their recent slumps, and they have proved before that they can get over their financial and administrative problems. They have a good squad, and should bounce back. After 3 consecutive defeats and 5 games without winning, they have dropped to 7th in the table, therefore a win today is imperative if they want to stay in touch with the top positions. And we can't blame them too much for these last games: two of them were at strong home teams like Cuenca and Manta, one was the Clasico of Quito, and the other two were against a recovering Barcelona. So the schedule wasn't really in their favor. But today, they should have it easier... the revenge factor should be present, as they lost 0-3 at Manta just one month ago, and Manta are a totally different team when playing away from home, with a record of 1-0-4. Deportivo has pretty much a full squad, and seem to be quite motivated, so I trust in a home win today. Hopefully, it will be by quite a difference. GL!
Deportivo (-1 AH) @ 1.86, 3/10
Result: 1-0, VOID
