Aldosivi vs Gimnasia
Aldosivi are struggling to leave their crisis behind. Last time out, the team showed improvements, but still ended up losing to Velez Sarsfield 3-2 away. It was their fifth consecutive defeat in the Liga Profesional (since beating Colon 3-0 in round seven), which means El Tiburon remain bottom in the relegation table after accumulating 13 points in 12 rounds. At home, Aldosivi managed six points in as many games, having lost the last two to Lanus and Godoy Cruz.
Gimnasia LP took a breather after six league games without a win (three draws and three defeats) last Monday, when they beat Union Santa Fe 1-0 at home thanks to a goal from German Guiffrey in the second half. It was the first win in three games under coach Nestor Gorosito. The team made it 14 points in the Liga Profesional and continue occupying the 20th place in the relegation table. On a sorry note, El Lobo are on 12 winless matches on away turf, drawing six and losing six (including the last four) since beating San Lorenzo 2-1 in January.
Aldosivi has lost 5 in a row but they’ve shown signs of improvement last week. They won’t lose forever, and this very poor Gimnasia that couldn’t win away in the last 8 months could be a good chance for the hosts to recover.

Arsenal vs Lanus
Sarandi Arsenal put up a good fight at River Plate last Sunday, but couldn’t stop their opponents’ offensive power and ended up losing 1-0. Following that loss, the side are now on nine league games without a win (drawing four and losing five) and remain bottom in the league table on eight points (they also are the worst team in the aggregate table).
Lanus are no longer league leaders following their 2-1 home defeat to Newell’s Old Boys last Monday. That loss stopped their four-game unbeaten streak of three victories and one draw in the Liga Profesional and also dropped them down to fourth spot of the league table on 23 points, trailing leaders Talleres by three. To make matters worse, Lanus remain out of the Copa Libertadores’ rankings in the aggregate table. On a positive note, Luis Zubeldia’s men have been confident on away turf in this competition, having registered four successes and a single defeat so far.
Lanus has the 2nd best attack of the league with 22 goals scored in 12 rounds, but they are also the worst defense in the top 10 with 18 goals conceded. Arsenal couldn’t score in the last 6 but this looks like a good opportunity for them to break this awful run, and they will definitely concede against a powerful attack that includes the league’s top scorer.
BET: OVER 2.5 @ 1.98
Central Cordoba vs River
After winning in coach Sergio Rondina’s debut, CA Central Cordoba returned to their usual standards last Sunday, when they lost 1-0 at defending champions Colon in a boring game. As a result, El Ferroviario claimed only one victory in the last nine league matches (drawing four and losing four). In fact, the side earned only 11 points in 12 games, which keeps them in the 19th spot of the relegation table. On a positive note, eight of those points were claimed at Estadio Unico Madre de Ciudades, where Central Cordoba won two, drew two and lost two.
River Plate produced a poor performance last Sunday, but they still had enough to beat bottom-placed Sarandi Arsenal 1-0 at home thanks to an own goal from Emiliano Mendez. The team extended their unbeaten run to seven matches in league action, winning five and drawing two since losing to Godoy Cruz in round five. Therefore, El Millonario are now in second spot on 24 points, two behind leaders, and hold onto their Copa Libertadores’ spot in the aggregate table.
I have to expect River to continue their good run to stay in the top places when they visit a Central Cordoba that is definitely below their level.
