cali america returns to Pascual Guerrero after 22 days and will do so facing Oil Alliancea team that has known how to complicate them in recent years.
This weekend there is carnival in San Fernando after almost a month of solitude in the Pascual Guerrero stadium. That 1-0 against Envigado was far behind with one less player and the fans already missed seeing their team, beyond the fact that there were close to 10,000 fans at the ‘El Campín’ stadium in Bogotá against Santa Fe. It will be a tough test against a rival who has them tested.
More than the rival, it is the coach. Alianza arrives with continuity in its game thanks to the long process it has been holding Hubert Bodhert, who, with Real Cartagena, Jaguares, Once Caldas and Alianza, has always known how to complicate America. the game will be this Sunday March 19 starting at 3:30 pm
Predictions America de Cali vs. Oil Alliance
América comes from playing its worst game of the season. It seems that spending more than 15 days without activity did not sit well with the group, added to the issue of altitude in Bogotá. They fell 2-0 away and released the leadership of the standings. Now, they must seek to turn the page and recover at home, hoping to maintain the regularity shown in the rest of the semester.
It won’t be easy, because as we said, they will have to play against a team that has been able to put them in check lately. Alianza’s last visit to Pascual was on date 17 of the first semester of 2022, where the aurinegro team won 1-0 as a visitor, leaving the Guimarães team eliminated from the Leaguewithout options to classify at 8. In the second semester and in Barrancabermeja, things went for America.
On the other hand, the team has become strong at home, getting 7 points out of 9 possible so far. They won against Unión Magdalena and Envigado; and tied against La Equidad, leaving a clean sheet in 2 of those 3 opportunities. Despite the loss against Santa Fe, They are still the team that has scored the most goals in the league and with one game less, so the good moment they are living is not denied.
Oil Alliance is playing well this semester and after the first 7 games they are in the classification zone. They have 11 points and come from 2 consecutive victories in the League, but if there is something to question, it is that they still do not know what it is to win on the outside. In fact, not even in the rounds of Colombian Cup have been able to have positive visitor results.
Their strong point is their coach, who knows how to damage America’s party. Throughout the entire career of the coach from Cartagena in Colombian soccer, he has faced this team 25 times, winning 12 times, drawing 8 and only losing 5. He is said to be short, but Hubert Bodhert is the father of America, both in A and B.
Alianza Petrolera’s priority right now is to get away from the relegation places, because in the event that Atlético Huila and Unión Magdalena start adding up, they will condemn them to lose the category. They need to add at any cost and regardless of whether it is a local or a visitor.
Betting America de Cali vs. Oil Alliance
According Colombian League Betting, América de Cali is the clear favorite to win. However, the quota that is being delivered in favor of the scarlet box is comfortable enough to let it go. A combination with América as the winner, added to a low goal quota, could be the key.
