Dep. Pasto – Once Caldas

pick: +1  Once Caladas @ 1,93 pinny

Too low odds on hosts if we look squads. Both will be with reserves. True, Deportivo <Pasto won first game away (1-0) but they dont have altitude here and odds are wrong

deportivo Pasto

Según las disposición del técnico tolimense al servicio del Deportivo Pasto, Flabio Torres, la nómina inicialista estaría conformada por José Cuadrado, Fausto Obeso, Harvey Díaz,  Wilson Galeano, John Montaño; Eder Rúales, Jaime Córdoba; Oscar Méndez, Juan Sebastián Villota, Ayron del Valle y Wilmer Parra Cadena.

En el banco podrían estar Alexis Márquez, Gilberto García, Omar Rodríguez, Arlington Murillo y Víctor Zapata.

Once Caladas
Aunque el técnico Hoyos no confirmó el equipo, la más probable formación sería con: Jhon Jairo Rincón, Hárold Gómez, Luis Miguel Vergara, David Álvarez, Diego Copete, Silvio Arango, Jéferson Angulo, Santiago Loaiza, Clemente Palacios, Carlos Rivas y Sergio Romero.

America De Cali – Rionegro

pick: America  @ 1,53  √ 2-0 

America powerfull team, even stringer than in apertura. Today miss topscorer Paulo Cesar Arango (22/12) but two players come back, Rubén Bustos (df 17/3) y Mauricio Romero (df 22/0) + two new signing can play, Juan Carlos Escobar y Jonathan Philippe.

Deportivo Rionegro good team but very weak away (strong home on altitude). Important players left themafter apertura so they are weaker than before. Players which left club:

Duque Montoya (att 21/20)
Gallego Castañeda (df 20/0)
Puerta (df 21/3)
Rivera (mf 21/5)
Palacios (mf 20/1)

liga postobon / finale game

Colombia, Santa Fe – Dep. Pasto (1-1)

Formación de Santa Fe: Camilo Vargas;  Sergio Otálvaro, Héctor Urrego, Julián Quiñones, Francisco Meza, Luis Carlos Arias; Juan Daniel Roa, Daniel Torres;  Omar Pérez, Jonathan Copete y Diego Cabrera.

Deportivo Pasto:  José Fernando Cuadrado; Gilberto Alcatraz García, Juan Carlos Mosquera, Wilson Galeano, Marino García; René Rosero, Carlos Giraldo; Kevin Rendón, Omar Rodríguez, Oscar Iván Méndez y Edwards Jiménez.

Absences are set Bogota had provided since the end of the game against Equity. Centurion Germain accumulated three yellow cards in a row and completed their part Gerardo Bedoya 5.However, the helmsman is not revealed Bogota by the circumstances and reached the quarry. To meet Daniel Bedoya included to replace Torres and Paraguay, it was decided by the young Hector Urrego, 19, with only two matches in first division.

Deportivo Pasto became the capital of Colombia with a roster of 16 players, considering that Gilberto ‘Alcatraz’ Garcia will heating test and if he does not feel discomfort in his left thigh, could play. Otherwise the variation would be the inclusion of young Juan David Díaz, Colombia Team player who played the U 20.

Another variant could be the inclusion of Victor Manuel Zapata, causing positional change with Oscar Ivan Mendez. Thus play as a midfielder for Zapata left, while the side opposite assume Mendez, allowing Kevin Rendon assume the position left by Garcia in the hypothetical case.

In that vein, the only change in the team’s payroll ‘Volcanic’ he faced on Wednesday at Santa Fe is known minutes before kickoff.

Fútbol paraguayo, Apertura 2012: Week 20 Preview

Penultimate weekend of the Apertura (with a round of games scheduled for midweek) and a win for Olimpia on Saturday against Sol de América will mean they can secure the title before the superclásico. Carapeguá and Cerro de Franco will be desperate to try and earn more points to help stave of relegation while Luque and Tacuary have also found themselves dragged into the mire.

Nacional vs Independiente
Estadio Arsenio Erico
Prediction: 2-1

Nacional will be smarting from the 5-0 thumping handed out to them by Cerro de Franco on Tuesday, they also face an in form Independiente side who are now unbeaten in seven games following their 1-0 win over Rubio Ñu. However Nacional have usually prevailed against ‘smaller’ sides at home just like they did last weekend against Carapeguá. I think they can overcome Independiente but it will be close.

BEST BET: With the home win by no means a certainty you might want to look into Over 2.5 goals  (1,67) – games involving these sides have averaged 3.05 so far this season only Sol de América (3.2) have seen more goals on average in their matches.

Rubio Ñu vs Luque
Estadio La Arboleda
30/06/2012, 15:00
Prediction: 2-0

Luque preparing to visit Rubio Ñu 

Rubio Ñu are playing so badly they couldn’t even give their new manager, Blas Cristaldo, a win last week. Luque too are in disarray, increased fan violence (a knife was thrown onto the pitch) has seen them banned from their home stadium for the two fixtures after this game and the hooligan element sent a death threat to the head of referee’s this week. On the field Luque just aren’t scoring, only hapless Tacuary have less goals, and with defenders Ronald Huth and Claudio Vargas suspended it tips the scales in favour of the albiverde.

Sol de América vs Olimpia

Estadio Defensores del Chaco
30/06/2012, 17:30
Prediction: 1-2

L-R José Ortigoza, Enzo Prono, Lorenzo Frutos – the league’s highest scorers Sol de América 

Sol de América are the form side in the league and have the division’s most profitable partnership in José Ortigoza and Enzo Prono (21 goals between them) and they always give Olimpia a good game. However, they usually give them a good game then lose as has been the case in the previous five meetings. El Decano on the other hand can smell the title, their front three are playing very well and will be hugely motivated by the possibility to wrap up the title this weekend (if they win and Cerro lose). I can only see the nominal away side (game being played in national stadium in front of Olimpia fans) winning this.
