Banfield – Rosario Central
Banfield are now on seven league matches without a win, having drawn four and lost three. Last time out, they registered a scoreless away draw at Racing Club in an uneventful game. The team continue producing a poor campaign, with only nine points in ten matches, which keeps them far from any important aims in the remaining matches. Furthermore, El Taladro are the worst home side in this tournament, having grabbed only two points in four games at Estadio Florencio Sola.
Rosario Central’s three-game unbeaten streak of two victories and one draw in league action came to an end last time out, when the team succumbed to a 2-1 home defeat to Boca Juniors in a thrilling game. Therefore, Cristian Gonzalez’s men remain on ten points in as many games, which is a poor campaign for them. El Canalla managed only four points in five away matches in this tournament, having won one, drawn one and lost three so far.
Rosario Central is a better team than what their numbers say and they were very unlucky to lose against Boca in the last minute through an own goal, so I don’t expect them to lose against this poor Banfield.

Newell’s – River Plate
Newell’s Old Boys extended their winless run in league action to five games (two stalemates and three defeats) following their 1-1 away draw at Colon in round ten. Fernando Gamboa’s men have produced an irregular campaign so far. Having managed 12 points and far away from the relegation spots and the continental tickets, La Lepra don’t seem to have big aims in the remaining league matches.
River Plate showed a great display of effort despite suffering several absences last time out, when they settled for a 1-1 home draw against Independiente. Therefore, the team are on five matches unbeaten in league action (three victories and two draws) and made it 18 points in the Liga Profesional, trailing leaders Talleres and Lanus by two. As a result of this positive run, El Millonario remain occupying one of the Copa Libertadores’ spots. On away turf, River grabbed seven points from 12 on offer, having won two, drawn one and lost one.
Newell’s is too irregular and even though River is not at their top form, they welcome back two of their best players, Matias Suarez and Julian Alvarez, so I expect them to get the win here.
