Defensa y Justicia vs Colon Prediction

Defensa y Justicia extended their unbeaten streak to five games on the trot last week by holding Atletico Tucuman to a 1-1 draw. The hosts have certainly been faring well in their clashes as of late and have stumbled just once in their past eight.

With twenty-five points in the bag, the home team are currently placed fourteenth on the ladder, with clear daylight separating them from their foes for the weekend.

On the other hand, Colon are just one spot away from hitting rock bottom in the table. The visitors have been the whipping boys in the Superliga this season, and have admitted defeat twelve times so far, which is the most by any side in the cluster.

Piling on even more misery, Colon are sporting the worst away statistics in the top flight as well, and are yet to garner a single point on the road.

In sharp contrast, Defensa y Justicia have been tasting nothing but success in their past three games at home. It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have not been at the losing end here since their 1-0 defeat to Boca Juniors, back in early October.

Taking into account that it was also the home team who came out on top when the two sides last locked horns here, Colon have been cast as the outright underdogs in this one.

Furthermore, Colon have hardly caused any problems in the final third away from home. Miserably, they have failed to get their names on the scoresheet on four occasions and have racked up just five goals to their tally so far.

Meanwhile, the hosts have conceded just once in their past four matchups on home soil. To top it off, their last h2h meeting here witnessed Colon lose by a hefty 3-0 scoreline.

As such, count on Defensa y Justicia to win and to do so with a clean sheet intact.
