Union – Atletico Tucuman
Union Santa Fe secured a valuable point on their visit to Talleres following a scoreless draw last Thursday, when goalkeeper Sebastian Moyano stopped a penalty in the 93rd minute. As a result, El Tatengue are on four points in two rounds in the Copa Liga Profesional and also made it three league games unbeaten without even conceding, having won two and drawn one in that spell. At home, Gustavo Munua’s men won their last three matches (over Atletico Tucuman, Colon and River Plate).
Things have been tough for Atletico Tucuman lately and recently-appointed coach Juan Manuel Azconzabal is also finding trouble. Last Thursday, the side rescued their first point in this competition after making it 2-2 at home against Platense in stoppage time. However, that result means they are on 11 league matches without a win, having drawn four and lost seven in that time. El Decano will probably be threatened by relegation unless they improve soon. Furthermore, Atletico grabbed only one point from the last 27 available on away turf.
Union is strong at home, Atletico has been terrible everywhere but specially away, so I can’t expect anything different than a home win here.
BET: Union -0.75 @ 1.95
Central Cordoba – Colon
CA Central Cordoba continue leaving good impressions under coach Sergio Rondina. However, they had to settle for a 1-1 away draw at Tigre last Wednesday after conceding in the 91st minute. Having secured four points in two games in this competition, El Ferroviario hold a healthy 13-point gap over the relegation zone after losing only one of their last five league matches (three victories and one draw). As hosts, Central Cordoba are on five matches unbeaten, having won four in a row and drawn one.
Colon showed an interesting performance last Thursday and managed a 3-1 success over Godoy Cruz playing as hosts at Patronato. Therefore, the team made it four points in the first two games in this Copa Liga Profesional under coach Julio Falcioni. In fact, El Sabalero lost only once across their last five league matches, along with two victories and two draws.
Both have scored 4 so far in 2 rounds this season, Central Cordoba is strong at home and Colon has a powerful attack, so I definitely expect goals here.
BET: OVER 2.25 @ 2.01
Racing – Argentinos Jrs
Racing Club wasted a two-goal lead at Defensa y Justicia last Thursday and they eventually had to settle for a 2-2 away draw. That result means La Academia secured only two points in as many games in this competition. Coach Fernando Gago is having trouble finding his team’s best version: they won only two of the last seven in league action, drawing two and losing three. However, Racing also are on three home matches unbeaten, having won two and drawn one since losing to Colon 2-1 in November.
Argentinos Juniors played enjoyable football last Tuesday to claim an easy 3-0 home success over Newell’s Old Boys. In fact, El Bicho won four of their last five league matches, suffering a single defeat in that time. Argentinos also won at Patronato in their last away game to break a five-match winless streak of one draw and four defeats on the road.
Argentinos has been playing very solid football, but Racing has a strong attack lead by colombian Edwin Cardona, so I like the chance to have at least a couple of goals and I’ll take the over on this short line.
BET: OVER 2 @ 1.83
Reading vs Birmingham City
I am betting over 2.5 goals to be scored here, both these sides are far better going forward than defending both sides are missing defenders for tonight in the case of Birmingham they are missing both centre backs while Reading are missing their full back Rahman and have started a young 18 year old in defence of late too. Birmingham look far more attacking since they signed Lyle Taylor and Onel Hernandez in January and Reading who recently welcomes back Lucas Joao looked excellent attacking away to Preston although nervous at the back in a 3-2 win that easily could have been a 3-3 draw. Reading have a new manager in lace in Paul Ince but with this being his first game in charge it is difficult to see how he changes the side this quickly.
