U. Magdalena vs Dep. Pasto Prediction & Betting tips
For early punters, this weekend there is excellent value in the Colombian league game between Union Magadalena and Deportivo Pasto. Read on and save!
Union Magdalena is back at the highest level this season after thirteen years. That is good news for those who love South American football, because the club from Santa Marta is a true football institute. Carlos Valderrama, among others, once took his first steps in Colombian professional football at the Estadio Sierra Nevada, home of Los Bananeros.
For the time being, Union Magdalena is at the highest level, because with eight points from six rounds, they are in a good tenth place. With a bit of luck, even participation in the playoffs for the championship is possible, as the team of trainer Harold Rivera is starting to improve. With the talented Ricardo Marquez (five goals in six games), the redblue has a rough diamond that could still go far, while also former Colombian international Abel Aguilar proves its worth. Last week, the midfielder shot his team for his own audience to a 1-0 victory against Atletico Nacional, one of the absolute top clubs in the country. Union Magdalena certainly does not have to be afraid of anyone, because the tropical heat of the Colombian Caribbean is often an extra weapon.
Not too long ago, Deportivo Pasto was a feared opponent. Under the guidance of former trainer Flabio Torres, the club from the south of the country immediately became her promotion vice-champion and reached the Colombian cup final. Especially in their own Estadio Libertad Los Volcanicos were very feared, because in the thin mountain air of Pasto the local heroes often let the visitors gasp for breath.
Times have changed, however. The Deportivo Pasto of today is not much more and goes with only six points from seven rounds again a difficult season. The results at home can continue, but outside Alexis Garcia’s team is only very vulnerable with just one point out of three away games. That is logical, of course, since then the geographical advantage of the mountain air is lost. I can also give you a note that Deportivo Pasto will not raise this Apertura.
