Gimnasia vs Banfield
Argentina – Primera Division
Date: Sunday, 4th June 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK Time
Venue: Estadio Juan Carmelo Zerillo, La Plata.
Gimnasia LP are in 14th place in the league and do have something to play for as they are just four points from a possible play-off place for the Copa Sudamericana. The team’s latest victory over Colon was very welcomed and ended a 4 game losing streak.
At home from 13 games they have won 5, drawn 4 and lost 4, and it’s clear that they have lacked consistency and this is why they are lingering in mid-table.
They have lost their last two games at home but we need to bear in mind these defeats came to the likes of River Plate and San Lorenzo.
Banfield have had a great season so far and are in 4th position where they hope to qualify for the Copa Libertadores. But they will need to push on as the likes of Estudiantes and San Lorenzo are right behind them. Recent form has been very good and apart from an away lost to Atletico Tucuman they have won 4 out of their last 5 games.
Their away form though has seen them lose 4 of their last 5 games, and on the whole the team has not travelled well.
