One of the traditional derbies in Colombia, Clásico del Eje Cafetero, the distance between both towns is just 35 km. Deportivo Pereira finally won the full set of points at home beating Cucuta 2-1 in the weekend and continue their hard quest against the relegation. It won't be easy in Manizales as Once Caldas are still the better quality team but after boosting their roster in the break Pereira are hard to crack, lost just one game from six and pulled points in all 3 visits so far - 2-0 at La Equidad, 0-0 at Santa Fe, 1-1 at Huila. On the other side Once Caldas are going through a rough patch in Liga Postobon II, after winning the opening game vs Boyaca Chico are failing already 5 rounds to beat someone - 3 draws and 2 defeats, latest was 0-2 in the weekend at Quindio. The return of striker Jose Moreno after 3-games ban is just a small relief. In my view the fair handicap should be Once Caldas -0.5 with odds around 1.80 (after dropping now we have -0.75 at 1.70) and because of the current value I go for Pereira once more time.
