Deportivo Pereira worked great for us in last week winning a couple of bets, although they can be sorry for missing 3 points at Once Caldas (as usually, taking the lead in a game but Viafara "scored" quite unlucky own goal 10 minutes before the end). I've backed Pereira 4 times already so no need to repeat why I do it, the latest updates - same squad as in the visit in Manizales, coach Araujo who was temporary in charge after the leaving of Comesana got the position as permanent due to the good results vs Cucuta and Once Caldas.
Independiente (shortly DIM) were the 2nd worst team in Liga Postobon I after Pereira (finished on 17th position), fortunately the good ratings from 2009 and 2010 keep them safe from relegation fears. DIM started well this 2nd edition but fell back after 2 consecutive losses (0-2 from Deportes Tolima and 1-2 at home from Quindio in the last round). Defense will come with patches in this game as Davi Rancan and Leyton Jimenez are suspended while Roberto Cortes (17 starts in Liga Postobon I) is long-term injured.
Summing all results in 2001 DIM are the worst away team in the league (1-1-9), Pereira desperate for points and living an uptrend deserve a try at these odds.
