ALMIRANTE BROWN V MAIPU
Almirante Brown prepare for this match following on from a 0-0 Primera B Nacional stalemate versus Temperley.
Under three goals per game were recorded in 5 of the past 6 fixtures where Almirante Brown have been participants. Breaking down the goal split during this period, opposing sides scored an aggregate of 4 and Almirante Brown totted up 6. That pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this next game, of course.
Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Nueva Chicago in Primera B Nacional competition, Maipu and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
The stats don’t lie, and Maipu have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 9 goals in total. In defence, Maipu have some weaknesses to address.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
COLON V TALLERES
Colón will be looking for a repeat result of a 1-2 Superliga victory vs San Lorenzo.
In that game, Colón had 40% possession and 11 shots on goal with 6 on target. For Colón, goals were scored by Paolo Goltz (45') and Eric Meza (64'). San Lorenzo got 14 shots at goal with 2 on target. Agustín Martegani (72') was the scorer for San Lorenzo.
Their latest results show that not much more can be done by the Colón rearguard. Colón have been mean at the back, with the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their previous six matches standing at 3. It will be interesting to see whether or not that trend will end up being continued on in this ground.
Talleres head into the game after a 2-0 Superliga win to defeat Atlético Tucumán in their last fixture.
In that match, Talleres had 68% possession and 10 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. For Talleres, goals were scored by Nahuel Tenaglia (69') and Michael Santos (76'). At the other end, Atlético Tucumán had 8 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target.
In the course of their 6 latest matches, Alexander Medina's Talleres have seen their efforts on goal rewarded 10 times therefore yielding them the goals per game average of 1.67.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
PALMEIRAS V INTERNACIONAL
Palmeiras prepare for this game after a 0-0 Serie A draw vs Bahia.
In that game, Palmeiras managed 48% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Bahia had 17 shots at goal with 5 of them on target.
It’s been all too rare in recent times that Palmeiras have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Palmeiras have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 10 goals along the way. Regardless, it remains to be seen whether that trend might be replicated in this next game.
Heading into this contest, Palmeiras have not won at home in their last 3 league games.
Internacional will come into the meeting following a 3-1 Serie A win with the defeat of América Mineiro in their last match.
In that match, Internacional had 49% possession and 10 shots on goal with 6 on target. For Internacional, the goals were scored by Patrick (14', 64') and Yuri Alberto (90'). For their opponents, América Mineiro got 11 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Ademir (16') scored for América Mineiro.
A succession of outstanding performances from the Internacional defensive unit has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their past 6 outings in total. During the same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 11.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
