Sol de America - Guarani
Sol de America welcomes Guarani in the round 10 of the Paraguayan Apertura. Sol de America is ranked 7`th with 12 points while Guarani is ranked third with 17 points.
Sol de America is performing very inconsistent this season and they have played very hot and cold. They are yet to connect 2 wins in a row and they have 4-0-5 so far. After the initial win over Libertad, a lot was expected from the hosts but they faltered even in home matches. Sol de America is usually a resilient home side but they already lost twice at home. Once against Olimpia 0:1 but the other time they were just destroyed by the new team Lorenzo 1:6. The last time around they beat the lowly Santani 1:0 but did it at the very end after playing with a man more for most of the match.
The results in the previous season were really bad for Guarani and they just finished in the middle of the table in both Apertura and Clausura. Olimpia and Libertad had good times against Guarani lately.
Guarani had a not so good start to the season but they faced Cerro Porteno at home and lost 0:1. There was a response however and Guarani showed his teeth beating the strong Libertad 3:1, Nacional away with 2:0, the newcomers Lorenzo with 3:1 away, Luqueno 2:0 away. Guarani is worse at home than away. They are 3-1-0 away from home where they scored 8 goals while conceding twice. Guarani has 5-2-2 altogether.
The team is definitely awakened and I like their chances today against the unconvincing Sol de America. Guarani is known to take points from this ground.
