Defensa y Justica will be hoping to keep up their good form when they welcome Gimnasia LP at the weekend to Buenos Aires. After some mixed football the home side seem to have turned a corner with two wins in a row, scoring 3 goals on each occasion. The recent turn in form has seen the club reach 11th place and a place for the play-offs is now on.

The team has a very solid home record with just 3 defeats from 14 games and has 10 points earned from their last 15 available. With just 10 goals conceded at home only two other clubs in Estudiantes and Lanus have a better record.

Gimnasia LP come into this fixture 3 points behind their hosts and they will know that a loss here will see the chances of a play-off finish look bleak. They can’t afford to drop any more points and yet they face a very difficult and tricky task.

Form has been very good with 3 wins from their past four games. Recent wins over Talleres and Colon has seen the side claim back to back victories away from home. Indeed Gimnasia would be 6th in the league based on away results and from a possible haul of 42 points on the road they have 21.
