A very interesting match takes place tonight at “Jose Fierro” between Atletico Tucuman and Banfield for the 25th of Primera Division.
Atletico Tucuman are on three matches without a victory in the league following their 1-0 away defeat to Atletico Rafaela on Saturday. The team were dominated and had to focus on defending for most of the time, especially after Bruno Bianchi’s sending-off in the second half. Atletico eventually conceded a few seconds before the final whistle and lost the game. With their match in week 22 against River Plate postponed, they are on 28 points and nowhere near the Copa Sudamericana places. The team from Tucuman have won four of the 11 league matches played at home, accumulating 16 points so far this season.
Banfield claimed a victory at home in their derby against Lanus last weekend. It was an intense match during which they were superior and they managed to secure three deserved points thanks to a goal from Nicolas Bertolo just before the break. They have now won four consecutive league matches and have climbed into the last Copa Libertadores place on 45 points. They have won their last away game against Tigre, but prior to that victory, Banfield were on three defeats in a row on their travels.
