BEEN a good weekend and hoping to keep the momentum going into Monday with a trip to Bolivia.
It pays to be fickle in this betting lark and loyalty to struggling teams will get you nowhere but the poorhouse.
As Wilstermann continue to wilt since the return of the Clausara, it may well pay to give them a wide berth. I’ve officially dumped them (for now) and I’m having the tattoo covered up – possibly by one with 3 stars and a lion rampant.
ROYAL PARI v NACIONAL POTOSÍ (8pm)
Just like Jorge came out of nowhere to blitz the table last year, Royal Pari have found a run of form matched only by the The Strongest – it’s a run that sees them in 2nd place and that's no mean feat for a newly-promoted side playing in a division that has always had it’s pre-ordained favourites.
With just 1 loss and 1 draw in their last 9 games, Pari head into this looking to make it 5 back-to-back wins. Tthe level of their achievement is reflected well in those last 4 scorelines – 4-2, 0-2, 3-0 and 0-3!
Despite form that could be worse Nacional Potosi have lost their last 5 games away from home and I’m not sure whether a trip to the Estadio Ramón Tahuichi Aguilera will be top of their ‘places we want to visit’ list.
Two selections to consider but I’d not recommend anything other than humble stakes.
- Royal Pari -1 (8-5, b )
- Royal Pari over 2.5 team goals (7-4, b )
Night Owl (10.15pm)
The Strongest are looking bang back in form as they travel to a team who are not in the best of shape. As mentioned the La Paz giants would have cleared the handicap in 80% of the previous 5 H2Hs and nothing much to put me off the same again given form and standings.
- The Strongest -1 (10-11, bet365)
