Deportivo Santani vs Sol de America
Competition: Paraguay Clausura
Date: 29 September 2018
Kick-off: 23:45 CET
Huge, absolutely huge win for Deportivo Santaní last weekend at home over Libertad, not only because it was… Libertad, but mostly because it boosted their chances of avoiding relegation. They remain second-to-last in the “promedio” table, where all points earned by teams in the last three years are taken into account, but the gap between them and third-to-last Independiente is now down to six points. It’s not small, but with 11 matches left, at least Santaní earned the right to keep hoping. Midweek, they beat a team from a lower division in the Copa Paraguay, qualifying for the next round.
Sol de América had finally found rhythm in the Clausura before visiting General Díaz last weekend, they had won back-to-back games, including a massive 2-1 over reigning champions and Clausura leaders Olimpia, but… totally dropped the ball at Adrián Jara. They lost 1-0, missing great chances to earn at least a draw, including a penalty in the dying minutes of the match. Franco Lazzaroni saw General Díaz’s goalkeeper deny him, leaving Sol empty-handed. They are on 13 points from 11 matches, fighting to earn a Copa Sudamericana ticket for next season. Midweek, their Copa Paraguay game got postponed due to bad weather conditions, so, unlike Santaní, they haven’t played in a week.

Deportivo Santani vs Sol de America: Prediction
Santaní are the ones who are… dying to win the game, but I just don’t trust them. I expect their… desperation to win the match, to lead them to taking big risks defensively. Sol disappointed last weekend, but still have players who can… kill you if they find open space. I’m backing the visitors to earn at least a draw.
