Barcelona SC vs Lanus
South America – Copa Sudamericana
Date: Thursday, 5 May 2022
Kick-off at 1:30 UK / 2:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Banco Pichincha.
Round 4 of Copa Sudamericana is scheduled this Thursday as Barcelona SC of Ecuador is set to host Lanus from Argentina at Estadio Banco Pichincha.
The Argentinian side have the highest points with 7 in Group A with 2 wins and one draw so far. Lanus is leading the Copa Sudamericana group by only a single point and remain as the only side to be unbeaten up to this point. They won the previous fixture against Wanderers by 1 goal to nil.
In Copa de la Liga Profesional, Lanus is at the 11th position on the table with only 14 points from 13 matches. They come into this encounter after a 1-0 win against Independiente in their previous league encounter. That win marked their 4-game unbeaten run in the league.
On the other side, Barcelona SC are 2nd in Copa Sudamericana with 2 wins and 1 loss. They have 6 points in hand and need only 2 more to climb to the table top. They come here on the back of a 1-0 win in the previous schedule with Metropolitanos. The hosts score goals but they tend to concede almost the same amount.
Barcelona SC is leading Ecuador Liga Pro with 22 points in hand after playing 10 games. After losing 2 consecutive league fixtures, they won previously against Macara by 1-0. They will be looking forward to carry that same momentum in Copa Sudamericana and possibly to take a revenge.
Barcelona SC vs Lanus Head-to-head (h2h)
- They met only once in the reverse fixture where Lanus won by 3 goals to one.
- Over 2.5 goals were seen in the second half of that match.
Barcelona SC vs Lanus Prediction
Barcelona SC won thrice of their last 4 home games across various competitions. They have lost only once in the league at home. This will be their biggest opportunity to climb into the first spot and also to take a possible revenge for their earlier h2h.
Meanwhile, Lanus remain unbeaten in Copa Sudamericana and are also on a 4-game unbeaten run across various competitions. But in their domestic league, they were unable to secure an away win so far.
Knowing that, we feel that Barcelona SC would win this Thursday since they are backed by their home support.
