Independiente will be wanting a better result here following a 0-2 Copa de la Liga Profesional loss in their previous game against Colón.
Under three goals per game were recorded in 5 of the past 6 fixtures where Independiente have taken part. Breaking down the goal split during this period, opposing sides scored an aggregate of 4 and El Diablo Rojo got themselves 4.
The trend of at least one team not scoring a goal in games involving Argentinos Juniors has been apparent of late. Looking at their last 6 meetings reveals that it’s happened 5 times. In those clashes, opposing sides have managed a goal total of 4 while Bichitos Colorados have scored 6. That trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, though.
Team News: Independiente
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just one fitness concern for the Independiente boss Julio Falcioni to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy group of players. Carlos Benavidez (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out.
Team News: Argentinos Juniors
Due to a fully healthy group available for selection, Argentinos Juniors boss Gabriel Milito doesn’t have any fitness worries to report ahead of this clash.
We believe that Argentinos Juniors will likely create enough chances to find the net against this Independiente lineup, but it probably won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We are anticipating a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 victory for Independiente at the end of this one. Let’s see what happens here.
