Godoy Cruz vs Lanus
Date: Friday, 25 January 2019
Kick-Off at 22:00 UK / 23:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Malvinas Argentinas (Mendoza).
Godoy Cruz will have a nice opportunity to start the year in a victorious fashion on Friday evening when bottom-half Lanus come to visit Estadio Malvinas Argentinas.
The hosts were one of the most pleasant surprises of the previous season which saw them finish runners-up to Boca Juniors with a two-point deficit at the end of the campaign.
Tomba began the new season in a somewhat slower fashion, but they did end the year clinching four points from clashes with Tigre (1-3 win on the road) and Independiente (1-1 draw at home).
They sit 8th in the league ladder and have a game in hand on most of teams around them at the moment.
The team led by Marcelo Gomez still have a chance to join the battle for the top-three finish being just five points shy of Atletico Tucuman in third.
Godoy Cruz vs Lanus: Head-to-head
Lanus were a tricky opposition to Tomba over the course of history.
Granate lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into their 21st meeting with Godoy Cruz.
Nonetheless, Godoy Cruz celebrated a demolishing 4-1 victory when teams last met each other in February last year.
Godoy Cruz vs Lanus: Prediction
Lanus head into this as underdogs thanks to their dreadful spell of form on the road this season. They really struggled to produce in the final third on travels this term. Granate notched no more than four goals in seven away fixtures.
It is certainly not a record to give you any kind of optimism ahead of one of the toughest away matches in the competition. Godoy Cruz have a superb home record with five wins, one draw and one defeat in seven outings so far in the season. They only conceded three goals in the process.
Home win to nil is our top betting recommendation here.
