Banfield vs Godoy Cruz
Date: Monday, 18 March 2019
Kick-Off at 22:00 UK / 23:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Florencio Sola (Lomas de Zamora).
Godoy Cruz failed to match last season successes in this term of Superliga. Tomba ended last season runners-up to Boca Juniors and they sit as low as 14th after 22 rounds of the new campaign. They are winless in past six games across competitions and will head into the last game of Matchday No 23 in low spirits.
The opposition comes in the likes of Godoy’s table-neighbours Banfield who sit just one point below them in the league ladder. The hosts won’t enter the game in the highest of spirits either following a streak of successive losses to Atletico Tucuman and Defensa y Justicia.
El Taladro were unbeaten in four games in all competitions beforehand. They have been very tough to break down in front of the home crowd throughout the entire season. They won 3, drew 4 and lost 3 of 10 home matches with a goal difference of 8-8 in the process.
Banfield vs Godoy Cruz: Head-to-head
The head to head record favours Godoy Cruz who won 9, drew 5 and lost just 3 of 17 ties against El Taladro.
Tomba are on a thread of four wins and a draw in past five encounters with Banfield.
Five of last six head to head games produced goals at both ends.
Banfield vs Godoy Cruz: Prediction
Godoy Cruz found goals very tough to come of late. They notched just one in last six games in all competitions. It came on Tuesday evening when Lucas Bernardi’s men drew 1-1 away at Sporting Cristal in the second round of Copa Libertadores group stage.
Tomba generally have a poor away record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses in 10 matches so far in Superliga. They’ve bagged no more than eight goals in the process. Since they scored just one in past six outings, we have to recognize the value in backing Banfield to keep a clean sheet at the 2.20 odds.
