Particular attention is required for the home / away condition, since both teams present significantly different results at home and abroad.

One more season is coming and Deportivo Pasto is eager to show that he can win something positive, so he hopes to at least reach the final phase of the Apertura. Being aware that it is a balanced championship expects to have regularity and not make basic mistakes, being that his greatest desire for this second day is to obtain a good result, therefore, enter the field motivated to achieve victory, as it has quality enough to achieve it. For this match the coach Flabio Torres should take to the field what he has of better available.
The away team comes to this 2nd round after a victory in its premiere in the league, against Atletico Bucaramanga by (1-0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 15 goals scored and 15 conceded; against 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 22 goals scored and 11 conceded. In the last match they played, for the Copa Libertadores, they beat Olimpia at home by (3-1). In the last 10 away matches Junior has 3 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses. The team has conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, so their defense needs to improve, but their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 14 of the last 32 matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 20 out of 32 have ended with Under 2,5 goals.
In the last Clausura Junior Barranquilla had the best campaign of the first phase and was considered one of the favorites to the title, but then in the quarterfinals he stumbled and was eliminated. Now, he hopes to erase the elimination and go further, preferably fighting for the title, since he does not expect to be surprised this time. We are at the beginning of the competition and still do not want to waste opportunities, so it is behind the victory that will go far from their domains. For this game the coach Alexis Mendoza should bring to the field what is best available.
