Match Time：1/15/2021 06:15 Friday (GMT+8)
Universidad Chile are not dealing with any major injury losses. Palestino won’t have Guillermo Soto and Sergio Felipe, but they should welcome Jonathan Benitez and Lucas Acevedo back from suspension.
Injured/Unavailable: Sergio Felipe (undisclosed), Guillermo Soto (muscular)
MAIN PREDICTION: AWAY WIN
Universidad Chile are coming off a 1-0 home loss against O’Higgins in their previous league contest, but they are rested ahead of this matchup since they didn’t play last weekend. That loss against O’Higgins ended their undefeated home record in the league and their overall recent form has been poor, with only one victory over their last six league contests. Palestino are coming off a 2-2 draw against Union Espanola the last time out, and that result means they have extended their undefeated streak to eight games (W5, D3), although they are coming off back-to-back draws – either way, they have looked excellent over the last few weeks under the guidance of Jose Luis Sierra. They have also posted a three-game undefeated run on the road (W1, D2), though their overall away record in less than inspiring (W3, D3, L7 in the league). Palestino have looked almost unstoppable of late and will be playing a very strong side here, while Universidad Chile have looked underwhelming. Palestino should win here.
HEAD TO HEAD
The recent H2H record between both sides indicates an edge for Palestino since they’ve posted a W2, D2, L1 record in their last five league games against Universidad Chile.
