Aragua will welcome Metropolitanos to Estadio Olímpico Hermanos Ghersi Páez for a matchday 18 fixture in Venezuela Primera División. The last meeting on 22nd May 2022 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met fourteen times in the most recent seasons. Aragua has won 7 matches, and Metropolitanos triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 2.21 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
Aragua’s latest fixture against Portuguesa ended in an away 1-0 loss. I expected more from Aragua. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
Metropolitanos’s recent game against Academia Puerto Cabello ended in a home 0-2 loss. Los Violetas had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch.
Since the start of the season, Aragua is more dominant at home. They have three wins out of 8 games on home soil. Aurirrojos’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 50% of home games.
Metropolitanos has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Metropolitanos wins 1.78 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Metropolitanos kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Aragua or Metropolitanos to win.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 1.68 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 28% of Aragua’s home and Metropolitanos’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
