Arsenal Sarandi vs Newells Old Boys Prediction
Arsenal Sarandi edged past Colon with a 2-1 scorecard in their most recent matchup, thereby completing back to back wins for the first time since August. The hosts are also unbeaten in their past four fixtures in the Superliga and have dropped points on just one occasion as well.
At the moment, the home team are sitting sixth on the ladder, with a slender two-point cushion over their counterparts.
Meanwhile, Newells Old Boys mustered a stellar comeback in their last clash on the road with Independiente and posted a 3-2 scorecard at the end of the ninety minutes. Be that as it may, the guests have come out on top just once in their past four fixtures on the trot.
To make matters worse, the visitors have tasted success just twice in their outings this season. In sharp contrast, Arsenal Sarandi have stumbled just once on home soil so far.
Taking into account that the hosts have also emerged victoriously in three of their last four meetings with this foe here, Newells Old Boys are likely to have their back against the wall in this one.
However, Arsenal Sarandi have shared the spoils in three of their last four games at home. Considering that they failed to secure the bragging rights in their last h2h meeting here as well, a double chance is sizing up to be the safest punt.
Furthermore, the hosts have been causing all sorts of problems in the final third as of late at home. They have scored two goals or more in five of their past six matchups here. Impressively, they have also netted a total of sixteen goals on home soil so far, which is the most by any side in the cluster.
On the other hand, Newells Old Boys have found the back of the net five times from their last two outings alone. As such, count on nothing short of a high scoring affair come Saturday.
