Date: Wednesday, 21 November 2018
Kick-Off at 20:10 UK / 21:10 CET
Venue: Estadio Juan Carmelo Zerillo (La Plata).
Both Gimnasia La Plata and San Martin San Juana re struggling badly coming into their 13th round of Superliga tie on Wednesday evening at Estadio Juan Carmelo Zerillo. The hosts will be hoping to rebound from a tough defeat to table-toppers Racing Club 0-3 in La Plata. It was their second consecutive defeat in the top flight of the Argentine football.
The negative thread dropped them down to 16th in the league ladder, but Pedro Troglio and his men will have a nice chance to bounce back against Verdinegro here. The visitors have been in an even worse shape of late. They lost three on the spin scoring just once in the process. The team offered a particularly dismal showing in the previous round when they lost 2-0 away at fellow strugglers San Martin Tucuman.

As for the outcome, we’ll go with Gimnasia to win given they were on a three-game unbeaten run at home before the aforementioned loss to pace-setters Racing Club ten days ago. Verdinegro lost three on the trot away from home conceding eight goals in total which is why we do find the value in backing the home win at 1.80 odds.
