ESTUDIANTES V SAN MARTIN
Estudiantes Rio Cuarto enter this fixture following a 1-1 Primera B Nacional stalemate versus Almirante Brown.
It has not been often in recent games where Estudiantes Rio Cuarto have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Estudiantes Rio Cuarto have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 6 goals in the process. We will have to find out whether or not that trend can be continued on in this game.
San Martín de Tucumán go into this game following on from a 3-1 Primera B Nacional win vs Gimnasia y Esgrima Mendoza in their most recent game.
A run of resolute performances by the San Martín de Tucumán defenders has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 3 from their last 6 outings overall. Over that same time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 9.
Prediction: Under 3.5
ARSENAL SARANDI V GODOY CRUZ
Arsenal de Sarandí will be looking for an improved result here following a 1-0 Superliga defeat in their last game at the hands of Huracán.
In that match, Arsenal de Sarandí had 50% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Huracán had 22 attempts at goal with 8 on target. Matías Cóccaro (9') scored for Huracán.
Games involving Arsenal de Sarandí have tended to be pretty pedestrian encounters of late with defensive steel becoming an established trait. Over their past six clashes, the tiny aggregate goal return of 3 has been yielded between them and opposing sides at an average of 0.5 goals per match.
Going into this encounter, Arsenal de Sarandí are unbeaten in their last 3 league matches at home.
Last time out, Godoy Cruz drew 2-2 in the Superliga match with Newell´s Old Boys.
In that game, Godoy Cruz had 61% possession and 20 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Godoy Cruz was Martín Ojeda (58', 82'). Newell´s Old Boys got 7 shots at goal with 5 on target. Manuel Capasso (30') and Jonathan Cristaldo (45') scored for Newell´s Old Boys.
Indicating their penchant for fruitful matches, goals have been celebrated 23 times in the last 6 matches in which Godoy Cruz have sent out their troops, making it a mean average of 3.83 goals each clash. Opposition teams have hit 8 of these goals. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, though.
Heading into this fixture, Godoy Cruz are unbeaten in their previous 2 league matches away from home.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
SAN LORENZO V COLON
San Lorenzo enter this match after a 0-0 Superliga drawn game versus Atlético Tucumán.
In that game, San Lorenzo had 49% possession and 4 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. For their opponents, Atlético Tucumán got 16 shots at goal with 2 on target.
Their latest results show that things are going according to plan in the San Lorenzo defence. San Lorenzo have been mean at the back, with the total number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their last six clashes standing at 4. Such a trend might not follow through into this match, of course.
In their last fixture, Colón drew 0-0 in the Superliga tie with Banfield.
In that game, Colón had 57% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Banfield had 11 shots on goal with 2 of them on target.
The trend of at least one team not scoring a goal in games involving Colón has become apparent recently. Looking at their last six meetings reveals that this has happened 5 times. During those clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal aggregate of 5 while Colón have scored 2.
Prediction: Both team to score.
