Arsenal vs Newell’s
Sarandi Arsenal returned to the bottom spot of the Liga Profesional’s table following their 3-0 away defeat to Independiente in round 20. Having won one, drawn two and lost four of their last seven league matches, El Viaducto remain on 16 points, which also dropped them down to the 21st place of the relegation standings. On a positive note, they succumbed to a single defeat across their last six league games, having won two and drawn three of those.
Thanks to a goal from Pablo Perez, Newell’s Old Boys managed their second consecutive victory in the Liga Profesional by beating Union Santa Fe 1-0 at home. In the context of a poor campaign, the team are now showing slight improvements. They made it 23 points in 20 rounds to escape the bottom spots of the relegation table, which is their main aim for the remainder of the season. On a sorry note, La Lepra are on three away games without a win, having drawn one and lost two since beating Lanus in September.
As bad as Arsenal has been this season, I’m willing to give them another chance as they will be at home facing this terrible Newell’s in a game they can win.

Platense vs River
Platense had a terrible trip to Santa Fe last time out, when they suffered a devastating 3-0 away defeat at Colon. That slump means El Calamar won only one of their last four league games, along with one draw and two losses, to accumulate 23 points in the league table. That places them in the 20th spot of the relegation standings, which is their main worry at the moment. Besides, Platense are on five home matches unbeaten at their own stadium, but they won only one of those and drew the other four.
River Plate took another step towards their first league title since 2014. The team played in perfect style to thrash Patronato 5-0 at home, which extended their unbeaten streak to 15 matches in the Liga Profesional (12 successes and three draws). El Millonario maintain their six-point gap over second-placed Talleres at the top of the league table (46 to 40) and need three more wins to become champions. On away turf, they haven’t lost any of the last seven in this competition (five wins and two draws since Godoy Cruz beat them 2-1 in round 5).
River is just days aways from winning the championship, they’ve been scoring freely lately and I think they can do it here again.
