It would be somewhat of an understatement to say that Argentinos Jrs have been in impressive form on their own patch of late, with maximum points being collected 17 times out of 20. Newells Old Boys, by way of contrast, have suffered 14 defeats in their previous 21 away matches at this level, with their most recent loss on the road coming in this fixture back this year.
seven of the previous 12 Newells Old Boys away matches had been of the under 2.5 goals variety, and the coach charges are past masters at keeping things tight in Liga Profesional. As for Argentinos Jrs, all five of their home games have served up no more than two goals.
It has been quite an unusual experience to see Argentinos Jrs both score and concede during the same 91 minutes in a Liga Profesional fixture recently, with this happening just three times out of a possible 11. Given that only six of the previous 21 top-flight games involving Newells Old Boys have produced goals at both ends, at least one of the two keepers should pitch a shutout here.
Argentinos Jrs vs Newells Old Boys Prediction
Newells Old Boys recent away form leaves a lot to be desired, with the team in claret and blue suffering nine defeats in 14 League One trips.
