Estudiantes vs Racing Club
Argentina – Superliga
Date: Monday, 7 May 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK
Venue: Country Club de Estudiantes de La Plata (La Plata).
One of the most interesting clashes of Argentine Superliga 26th round is going to be contested between Estudiantes and Racing Club. Home side is sitting in the middle of the table and Lucas Bernardi’s side hoped of a better campaign. They are in a slight crisis of results as they have been defeated three times in the last five matches. However, they still have the chance to snatch the place in the Copa Sudamericana next season since they are four points behind their rivals. they need to improve the game when playing at home pitch urgently since they suffered three straight defeats.
Racing Club are currently on 11th place, but they are not too far from the top five as they are six points behind Independiente but also have played one game less than the others. In the latest round, they managed to break the three-match winless streak with a win over Rosario Central. Lautaro Martinez and the lads have been one of the most efficient sides in the competition as they scored 41 goals so far.
Visiting teams rarely manage to snatch some points in their head to head clashes and since2002 Racing Club celebrated only two times in La Plata. Last four matches when Estudiantes were the hosting team were pretty efficient and in three of those we saw both teams scoring at least once.
Both sides are in a variable form and since the hosts have played a mid-week match in Copa Libertadores, Racing club could get away with a draw. Estudiantes are not performing well at home lately and they might drop some points once again.
The hosts have been playing very tight this season and in their matches we usually cannot see more than two goals. Estudiantes have been involved in six consecutive matches which remained under 2.5 margin, while the visitors did the same in the last three occasions.
Draw @ 3.00
Under 2.5 FT @ 1.61
