With the debugging of the payroll that was done and seeing the amount of reinforcements that arrived, few would have predicted that Junior from Barranquilla would have such a hard time winning an official match again. There are already five games in this first semester, where those led by Arturo Reyes have barely been able to draw three and lose two. This match on date 6 against La Equidad in the Metropolitan could seal the fate of the samarium coachwho is walking a tightrope due to the precarious proposal that his people have been exhibiting.
The Sharks They have not won a match since October 30 of last year, this being the worst winless streak that the sports institution has had in this century. There is no confidence in Reyes’ project and it is not for less: Junior, with the names he has, has only two goals in the current BetPlay League. Those are not numbers from a club that broke the market by signing Juan Fernando Quintero, for example.
Before La Equidad, the Barranquilleros arrive with the full obligation to add three to not continue losing points that in the end can be regretted and to save the skin of their coaching staff. The record is favorable because Junior won 9 of the last 10 games he played against the team Insurer in local condition. And four of the previous five were with a score of 1-0.
For its part, it is not that the team from the capital of the country arrives at a precisely exciting moment. Those led by Alexis García have only been able to win once so far in the league, which has them in tenth place in the standings. Although they are a little better off than Junior, it is never easy for them against the costeños.
Since La Equidad was promoted to the first division of Colombian soccer in 2007, they have never been able to win at the Metropolitano de Barranquilla. He has scratched draws, he has taken points, but never three and categorically. Any victory in that square would be a milestone for García and his pupils.
And it’s not just that it’s hard for them to win, but they also have a goalless streak. In BetPlay League matches, the last record of a La Equidad goal away from Junior is from 2018. For the rest, Mario Sebastián Viera usually leaves the fence undefeated when he faces this rival playing at home.
For this match, the most recommended bet is that both teams do not score. That is a constant in the duels between Junior and La Equidad, where in only two of the last 10 clashes have the two clubs reported on the scoreboard.
On the other hand, it would not be bad either to bet on a low result. La Equidad always goes to the Metropolitan to protect itself and close all possible spaces for the rojiblanco team. Quintero, Bacca and company are not going to be given the minimum space, so it is likely that there will be a game with less than 2.5 goals.
