La Paz is calling once again – it's time to dig out the oxygen masks and climbing gear and take that long and winding road up through The Andes…

THE STRONGEST VS. JORGE WILSTERMANN

(8.00pm)

Of all the South American sides, these two have a particular place in my heart and have featured in some of the most insane matches over the years – when they meet too, it's rarely a dull encounter!

Eight games into this Clausura campaign, its Wilstermann who have the slight edge in form having harvested an impressive 20 points from a potential 24 compared to The Strongest's total of 14 points from the same amount of games.

Whilst Jorge may have the form advantage, nobody can deny the hosts their own advantage; sitting around 12,000 feet above sea level, their home grounds in La Paz are as big an asset as a club could hope to have and has been the undoing of many big sides travelling to the Bolivian capital.

But, Wilstermann are wily old foxes and tend to cope relatively well on their many travels to play both The Strongest and city ricmvals Bolivar; of the last 12 H2H's in La Paz, Jorge have netted in 10 having done so in 100% of their 5 most recent visits!

Another common trend I've noticed in recent years is the number of games that have ended with 2-1 or 1-2 scorelines – 7 of the last 17 H2H's and a whopping 5 of the last 6 in La Paz have all ended with the above scoreline!

This fixture is usually a cracker but comes with a safety warning that an early red could (and often does) dictate the outcome…welcome to Bolivian football.

    Rock le Paz bar ?.
    Jesus, who writes these headlines.
    Must be of a certain age to remember the clash.
    55+ and a liking for punk rock.

      Wasn’t me. I was a heavy metal fan – Motorhead, Zepellin and best of all Rush. That kind of thing.
      Have been known to write the odd bad pun though. Have to Rush. Off in the Motor to Head to work.

    Hey hull! Long time follower chip in now and then but usually just to say thanks. Noticed you don’t add stars now I used to take that as confidence guide. Any chance you can add that back in or a point rating?

    • HullShaker 3 months ago

      Hi Ryan – I remember you posting – good your still around 👍

      Yeah, used to use a 1-5 star rating but moved to Nap/Nb model to bring in line with rest of site…I guess it’s pretty similar really although the star ratings offered a bit more insight into confidence.

    • red_ryan 3 months ago

      Hey hull! Guess you could add the stars in your write up and that could be good way having both metrics on?

      Will check with admin/Mr F and happy to add if OK with them 👍

    • Mr Fixit 3 months ago

      Fine by me – it’s another version of points really.

    • HullShaker 3 months ago
