La Liga

Try your luck by playing on these analysed soccer matches

Sarmiento and Rosario Central are lock on three points ahead of their fifth round clash in Argentinean Liga Profesional on Friday evening at Estadio Eva Peron de Junin.

Both Sarmiento and Rosario are struggling to perform at the beginning of the new season.

The hosts, who returned to the top flight of the Argentinean football after four years, find it very tough to produce in the final third these days.

Sarmiento thus scored only one goal in the opening four affairs. That lone goal came in their only victory of the campaign, a 1-0 success against fellow strugglers Platense (who had a man sent off in that game).

Mario Sciacqua’s men have also been inefficient in this year’s Copa de la Liga Profesional run, scoring no more than 10 goals in 13 matches in Group B.

Nevertheless, Sarmiento will have something to hope for going into this tie with Rosario Central who have been anything but impressive themselves in the opening four matches of the campaign.

Rosario come into this match with an identical record of one win and three defeats in four outings.

They have been somewhat better up front, though, netting three goals in the process.

The team led by Cristian Gonzalez were unlucky to drop the ball in a 1-2 home defeat to Aldosivi last weekend, despite not being the inferior side on the pitch.

Sarmiento vs Rosario Central Head-to-head

It’s been four years since these two sides last locked horns, and back then they were also battling it out in the elite tier of the Argentinean football.

Rosario Central won two, drew two, and lost one of the last five meetings with Sarmiento.

Just one of these five outings produced three or more goals.

Sarmiento vs Rosario Central Prediction

Sarmiento scored their only goal of the season in a power play situation against Platense. We see a great opportunity for Rosario Central to take advantage and get their Liga Profesional campaign up and running with a three-pointer in Junin.

This shouldn’t be a high-scoring game based on everything we’ve seen from these two teams so far in the season. The Under 2.5 goals FT thus seems to be a banker bet at the odds of 1.50.
