Banfield vs Rosario Central Prediction
Banfield came out on top in their most recent outing against Colon after Reinaldo Lenis scored the only goal of the game. Despite recording far fewer shots at goal, than their foes in that clash, the hosts were far more clinical in their efforts and deservedly made the trip back home with all three points in the bag.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team are now unbeaten in their past eight fixtures. At the moment, Banfield are sitting fifteenth on the ladder, with a five-point deficit separating them from Rosario Central.
On the other hand, the visitors had a two-match winning streak brought to an abrupt halt, last week on the road, by Independiente, who slotted five unanswered goals past them by the end of the ninety minutes.
The guests were kept at bay throughout the ninety minutes in that fixture. Miserably, they failed to bag even a consolation goal, despite managing five shots on target.
To be frank, the visitors have not looked sharp in their outings this term. In fact, they have picked up the win just once in their past eight trips on the road.
At the same time, Banfield are currently unbeaten in their last four games at home. Taking into account that the hosts have also made no mistake in securing the bragging rights in their previous two meetings with this foe here either, Rosario Central’s chances of a win are certainly looking bleak.
However, the home team have been forced to share the spoils in three of their past four fixtures on home soil. Considering that the visitors have also salvaged a point five times on the road this season, back a Draw no bet, just to be on the safer side.
Furthermore, Banfield are guilty of possessing a leaky defense. The fact that they have kept a clean sheet in just one of their previous eight games here certainly says it all.
Additionally, the visitors have had their names on the scoresheet in each of their past four trips to this stadium. As such, count on Rosario Central to find the back of the net along with the hosts in this one.
