Godoy Cruz – Talleres
Godoy Cruz are experiencing irregular form at the moment. Last Sunday, they played a poor game and ended up losing 1-0 at San Lorenzo, one of the worst teams in the league. After a good run, El Tomba have now claimed a single win across their last six league games (drawing three and losing two). Their campaign is decent as the team accumulated 26 points, but they remain occupying the 23rd spot in the relegation table. Godoy Cruz are on five home matches unbeaten, having won two and drawn three.
Thanks to a header from Diego Valoyes in the first half, Talleres managed an important 1-0 home success over Huracan last Saturday. Thanks to that victory, the team broke a three-match winless streak of one draw and two defeats in league action and kept the second spot of the league table on 36 points (trailing leaders River Plate by seven with six rounds to go). Alexander Medina’s men also continue occupying one of the Copa Libertadores’ berths. On a sorry note, Talleres are on three matches without a win on away turf, having drawn one and lost two since beating Racing Club 2-1 in September.
Even though Talleres is one of the best teams of the tournament they’ve been poor lately when playing away, so I’m going to trust this solid Godoy Cruz that is one of the surprises of the league.

Atletico Tucuman vs Racing
Atletico Tucuman are yet to win under recently-appointed coach Pablo Guinazu (two draws and one loss) following their heartbreaking 4-1 away defeat at newly-promoted side Platense. El Decano continue performing an irregular campaign in the Liga Profesional, having earned 21 points so far, which makes it difficult for them to fight for a Copa Sudamericana ticket in 2022. At home, Atletico managed a single victory in their last five matches, along with three draws and one defeat.
Racing Club recently-appointed boss Fernando Gago suffered the second loss in as many games at the club last time out, when the side lost 2-1 at home to Defensa y Justicia. After four winless matches in league action (drawing one and losing three), the team remain on 23 points in the Liga Profesional (a poor campaign for one of the big five). Racing need to improve in the remaining games to keep their Copa Sudamericana berth. On away turf, they won only one of the last six in this competition, having drawn three and lost two.
Atletico is the 2nd worst defense in the league with 30 goals conceded, Racing has conceded at least once in the last 9 games, so I definitely expect to see goals here.
