Argentinos Juniors vs Patronato de Parana Prediction
Argentinos Juniors breezed past Atletico Tucuman on the road last week, with no less than two unanswered goals to their name. Despite holding the hosts to a stalemate for the majority part of that latter matchup, their foes were far from disciplined, to be frank, and finished the ninety minutes with just nine men on the pitch.
As of now, the home team are unbeaten in their past three clashes in the SuperLiga. Impressively, they have also stumbled on just two occasions in their previous ten games in all competitions.
With thirty-five points to their name, Argentinos Juniors are third on the ladder, four points adrift of second-placed Boca Juniors.
In sharp contrast, the visitors are dwelling way below in the bottom half of the table. However, the guests have been showing signs of promise in their campaign as of late.
As a matter of fact, they have not been at the losing end in any of their last four games on the trot. Be that as it may, Patronato de Parana are yet to ensure a consistent winning form away from home.
Miserably, the visitors have not tasted success in their outings since their 1-0 win over Colon, way back in late July.
On the other hand, the hosts are sporting the best home statistics in the cluster. With home advantage out of the equation for the visitors, it goes without saying that Argentinos Juniors are the favorites to come away with the win in this one.
Furthermore, the home team have looked rock-solid in the defensive third here. In fact, they have conceded just twice in their past five games.
It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have not been keen on racking up the goal-scoring charts either. All of the past five fixtures at this stadium have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on final scorecards.
Meanwhile, Patronato de Parana have been struggling to find the back of the net on the road. Disappointingly, they have failed to get their names on the scoresheet in half of their past eight outings.
As such, count on Argentinos Juniors to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
