Aldosivi – Colon
Aldosivi were close to beating Atletico Tucuman last Saturday, but they had to settle for a 2-2 away draw after conceding in the 92nd minute. However, Fernando Gago’s men have been improving in the league: they took seven points from the last nine available to make it ten in six rounds (four behind leaders Independiente), which means the side are sitting in the 22nd place of the relegation table.
Colon remain second-placed in the Liga Profesional’s table on 13 points (trailing leaders Independiente by one) following their 1-0 home success over Gimnasia LP last time out, with Eric Meza finding the back of the net in the 78th minute. The defending champions took ten points from the last 12 available (including three consecutive victories). On away turf, El Sabalero are unbeaten in this tournament, having won two and drawn one.
Aldosivi has finally found some form lately with interesting performances and good results, so even if Colon is a better team I think the hosts have enough not to lose this one.
BET: Aldosivi +0.25 @ 1.93
Banfield – Estudiantes
Banfield are now on three league games without a win (one draw and two consecutive defeats) following their 2-0 away loss at Argentinos Juniors last Saturday as a result of a poor performance. El Taladro have been irregular in this tournament, accumulating six points in as many games so far. Furthermore, Javier Sanguinetti’s men grabbed a single point in two home matches without even scoring.
Estudiantes managed their third consecutive success in league action last Sunday, when they beat Boca Juniors 1-0 at home with centre back Fabian Noguera netting the winner in the 75th minute. Thanks to that run, El Pincha are now fourth-placed on 12 points, trailing leaders Independiente by two, and hold one of the Copa Libertadores places in the aggregate table. On away turf, Ricardo Zielinski’s men beat Sarmiento and CA Central Cordoba and lost to Newell’s Old Boys. All regulars are available for Friday.
Banfield has been awful lately and it’s like they need a miracle to score a goal. Estudiantes is in very good form and they can definitely win this one.
