Deportivo Capiata vs Independiente CG
Competition: Paraguay Apertura
Date: 6 April 2018
Kick-off: 23:30 CET
It’s hard to believe that Deportivo Capiatá’s last game, the one at Olimpia, had just one goal. Capiatá have been hit hard by serious injuries, they have not one or two, but FIVE players who were unlucky to get seriously injured and are practically missing the season, but even so, they created half a dozen awesome chances against the Apertura leaders, and could have scored at least two goals. On the other hand, they were lucky the referee missed a penalty for Olimpia in the first half. Capiatá finally conceded in the 67th minute, they lost the game 1-0, but their overall performance was definitely a positive surprise. It was their fourth defeat in a row, they are left 7th in the table, but I repeat, their performance at Olimpia was very good.
Independiente de Campo Grande’s double chance (1.72), “both teams to score” (1.75), “over 2.5 goals” (1.90) and last but not least, Inde’s win in “draw no bet” (2.45) were my four tips when Inde hosted Libertad a week ago, and all four came good, as Independiente won the game 3-1. Sebastián Ferreira scored two absolutely spectacular goals, Inde’s first and third one, and he’s the top scorer in the Apertura thus far, with seven goals in ten matches. Generally, Inde looked good, but truth is, they needed a good deal of luck to be 3-0 up after 76 minutes. It felt as if everything they tried worked, and everything Libertad tried ended up in the… trashcan. They are third in the table, on 17 points, and would be second, above Nacional, if they hadn’t lost their game against them 0-3 in papers for fielding an ineligible player, a game they actually won 4-0 on the pitch.

Deportivo Capiata vs Independiente CG: Prediction
I’m thrilled to see Deportivo Capiatá be considered relatively clear favourites to win the game, because that makes Inde’s double chance and win in “draw no bet” pay better than what I expected.
Deportivo Capiata vs Independiente CG: Betting Tips
Inde’s double chance is at 1.62 betting odds. Their win in “draw no bet” pays 2.20. “Over 2.5 combined goals” is at 1.95. Actually, because of the… nature of both teams, I would act greedy and bet on “over 3.5 goals”, at 3.30. Most Capiatá and Inde games thus far had many goals, and even that 1-0 at Olimpia last weekend, Capiatá’s defeat, had a dozen huge missed chances by both teams.
