PATRONATO V DEFENSA
Patronato won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 3-2 Superliga loss in their previous game against Rosario Central.
In that game, Patronato had 41% possession and 12 shots on goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Patronato was Sebastián Sosa (44', 77'). For their opponents, Rosario Central had 17 attempts on goal with 7 on target. Marco Rubén (4'), Luciano Ferreyra (85') and Emiliano Vecchio (93') scored for Rosario Central.
It has been all too rare in recent games where Patronato have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Patronato have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 10 goals along the way. Regardless, we will just have to wait and see if that trend will continue on in this next game.

In that match, Defensa y Justicia had 48% possession and 15 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. For Defensa y Justicia, goals were scored by Miguel Ángel Merentiel (22') and Walter Bou (71'). Estudiantes de La Plata got 8 shots at goal with 1 on target. Gustavo Del Prete (51') scored for Estudiantes de La Plata.
A run of accomplished displays by the Defensa y Justicia defensive players has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 3 from their last 6 fixtures overall. During the same period of time, their forwards have scored 8.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
