Newells Old Boys vs Union Santa Fe
The hosts bagged a morale boosting 1-0 win over Independiente last week, but their overall form remains poor having failed to win in previous 6 (2D, 4L). The home form before this win was a similar 2 draws and 4 losses.
Scoring goals has been a consistent problem for Newells. They haven’t scored more than 1 goal in any of their last 7 home games.
Union are 14th in table, 8 spots above their Monday’s host. Their form is slightly better having won 4 of the recent 7 along with a draw and 2 losses.
Away from home, the team from Santa Fe managed to win just 3 of their 9 so far, and average 1 goal per game.
Considering the struggles of both teams in front of goal, we are expecting a low scoring affair and thus the under 2.5 goals appears to be the top option.
With Newells out to protect a 7-match unbeaten run in h2h games at this stadium, a double chance on the home team seems like a decent alternative.
Prediction:Both teams to score
Huracan vs Argentinos Juniors
Huracan have a better h2h record in recent seasons having won 3 of the recent 8 along with 4 draws and 1 loss. However, that defeat happened earlier this January in the cup competition.
At home, Huracan’s record against Argentinos Juniors is 6 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses.
Prediction:Over 1.5 goals
