Atletico Tucuman vs The Strongest Prediction
Atletico Tucuman failed to make much of an impact in the first leg and ultimately succumbed to two unanswered goals by the end of the ninety minutes. The hosts managed just two measly shots on target in that latter matchup, as opposed to their foes who recorded eleven.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team are currently winless in their past seven fixtures across various competitions.
On the other hand, The Strongest will be making the trip to Estadio Monumental Jose Fierro on the back of a 1-0 defeat to J Wilstermann. To be frank, the visitors have been erratic in their clashes as of late.
As a matter of fact, the guests have been alternating between wins and defeats in their past six fixtures. Furthermore, it is also worth mentioning that The Strongest have been at the losing end in each of their past two outings, back in their domestic campaign.
In sharp contrast, Atletico Tucuman have been at their best on home soil. Impressively, the hosts are unbeaten in their past five fixtures here and have not tasted defeat since in their 1-0 loss to Independiente, back in September.
Taking into account that their last meeting with this foe at home also saw them secure the bragging rights with a whopping 3-0 scorecard, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Atletico Tucuman in this one.
Additionally, the hosts have keen on racking up the goal scoring charts in their clashes here lately. Admirably, they have found the back of the net nine times from their past five matchups alone.
Meanwhile, The Strongest have not been shy in front of goal, on the road, either and have failed to get their names on the scoresheet just once in their past ten outings.
Considering that their previous h2h meeting here was also a high scoring affair, expect a total of three goals or more on the final scorecards come Thursday.
