Atletico Tucuman vs Newells Old Boys Prediction
Atletico Tucuman salvaged no more than a point for the second time in a row after the hosts managed no more than a 1-1 draw in their last matchup with Estudiantes on the road. Nevertheless, the home side are still unbeaten in their previous eight clashes in the Superliga and have garnered eighteen points from a possible twenty-four in the process as well.
At the moment, the hosts are sitting seventh on the ladder, with a three-point cushion over Newells Old Boys.
Meanwhile, their counterparts for the weekend have been slumping down the table rapidly for the past two weeks. Their most recent clash at home saw them at the losing end of a 3-2 scorecard against River Plate while on the road, Argentinos Jrs edged past them with a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
It is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent have just one win to boast of from their last five fixtures on the trot. To make matters worse, Newells Old Boys have tasted success just once on the road this season.
In sharp contrast, the hosts have been faring a lot better on home soil, and have stumbled only once so far. As such, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Atletico Tucuman in this one.
However, both teams have shared the spoils in each of their last two h2h meetings. Taking into account that the hosts dropped points in their most recent home match as well, the safest punt would have to be a Draw no Bet.
Furthermore, Atletico Tucuman have looked organized at the back. They have kept a clean sheet in half of their last six games in the top flight.
On the other hand, the away side’s front line have been disappointing in their recent outings, and have not found the back of the net in their last two.
Considering that their previous two head to head clashes here have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, rule out any possibilities of a high scoring affair unfolding this weekend.
