Newell’s vs Rosario Central
Newell’s Old Boys saw their three-game unbeaten streak coming to an end last Sunday, when they succumbed to a 2-0 away defeat at Racing Club. However, they remain producing a good campaign after their terrible first semester: Fernando Gamboa’s men earned ten points in six rounds, four behind leaders Independiente. La Lepra are without defeat in the last seven home matches in league action, winning four and drawing three: in fact, they have been perfect at their own stadium in this competition, beating Talleres, Estudiantes and Platense.
Rosario Central are now on four defeats in a row in the Liga Profesional as they were beaten by Independiente 2-1 at home last weekend. In fact, Cristian Gonzalez’s men lost five games in six rounds and accumulated only three points, which places them in the 25th spot of the league table. El Canalla also succumbed to four straight losses on away turf in domestic action (since beating Aldosivi 1-0 in April). Rosario Central lost 1-0 at Brazil’s Red Bull Bragantino on Tuesday 17, which means they were knocked out of the Copa Sudamericana in the quarterfinals.
Another edition of the huge Rosario derby, and it’s Newell’s that arrives in better form and should take the win here.
