La Serena will welcome O’Higgins to Estadio La Portada de La Serena for a matchday 16 fixture in Chile Primera División. The last meeting on 4th February 2022 ended in a O’Higgins 3-0 win. Both sides have met five times in the most recent seasons. La Serena has won 1 match, and O’Higgins triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 1.80 goals, while both teams score 40% of the time.
La Serena’s last game in the Chile Primera División against Audax Italiano at home ended in a 3-2 win. Although La Serena played less with the ball than their opponent, it was enough to get the result they were hoping for. La Serena outplayed Audax Italiano in the second half and scored in the 18th, 30th and 73rd minute.
O’Higgins’s previous game in the competition versus Everton ended in an away 0-0 draw. Their attackers wasted a lot of good goal-scoring opportunities, so the draw was deserved.
So far, La Serena plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.14 points per away game on average compared to 0.75 points at home. Although La Serena is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 13% home clean sheets.
O’Higgins has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. O’Higgins wins 0.71 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. It is clear that their strikers will have to step up in the following games. O’Higgins failed to score in 86% of away games this campaign.
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 La Serena or O’Higgins to win.
