Gameweek 5 of Liga Profesional is set for this Friday as Banfield play host to Barracas Central where both these sides are separated by 20 places and 5 points. These two teams will be seen clashing at Estadio Florencio Sola.
Banfield are hoping to win again following a 1-0 Superliga win against Tigre. From the 4 matches played so far, they lost and drew one game each while having won 2 other fixtures.

Claudio Vivas’s men have hit the back of the net a sum total of 6 times in their last 6 outings. At the other end, the tally of goals that they have conceded in those fixtures is 5. The home side has scored in the last 4 games in front of their own fans.
On the other side, Barracas Central resides at the 27th position on the table with 2 points. Of the 4 matches played, they lost and drew 2 matches each. The visitors are yet to secure their first win in Liga Profesional and are currently second from the bottom of the table.
After a 1-3 loss in their previous game against Boca Juniors in Superliga competition, Barracas Central will be hoping for a better result here. That loss was their second in a row. They have been scored against in all of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 10 goals overall.
These two sides have never met in the past and this will be their first ever meet-up.
Banfield vs Barracas Central Prediction
Banfield has put together a good run of form and has now gone 3 games without defeat which includes consecutive victories. They will be looking to keep up the momentum today against Barracas Central, having lost just one game from the last 5.
Meanwhile, Barracas Central is yet to secure their first win in Liga Profesional and are currently second from the bottom of the table. They lost their last 2 games in a row and are also without an away win since their last 2 away fixtures.
The in-form Banfield is likely to get the upper-hand here considering it is their home game and the visitors have not yet secured a win in this competition.
