A very interesting match takes place tonight aT “Estadio Norberto Tito Tomaghello” between Defensa Y Justicia and Atletico Tucuman for the 28th week of the Argentinian Primera Division.
Defensa y Justicia’s eight-match unbeaten run in the league came to an end two weeks ago when they were defeated by Sarmiento 1-0 away from home. Defensa had possession for most of the time but lacked creativity when it came to challenging goalkeeper Javier Burrai. The team conceded the only goal of the match with 30 minutes to go, but it was their first defeat in four away games. They hosted their postponed league match against Independiente on Thursday, losing 1-2. The team are now on 40 points, having claimed 22 of them at home, where they had been unbeaten for the previous seven matches.
Atletico Tucuman have suffered four losses in their last five league games following their 2-1 home defeat to San Martin SJ last time out. The team tried to control the match as they usually do at home, but the visitors were superior. Luis Rodriguez managed to cut the lead in the second half, but his team couldn’t even rescue a point. The side remain on 31 points and are no longer in with a chance of qualifying for a continental competition. However, they advanced to the round of 32 in the Copa Argentina by beating second-tier team All Boys on penalties last week. Atletico haven’t won any of their last seven league games on away turf, earning just three points during that time.
Prediction: Defensa y Justicia -1 AH at 2.46 @Pinnacle
