Huracan vs Banfield
Date: Monday, 17 September 2018
Kick-Off at 23:00 UK / 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Tomas Adolfo Duco (Buenos Aires).
Banfield got off to a surprisingly strong kick off to the new Superliga campaign. They won two and drew one of last three games and will come into Monday’s clash with Huracan as the fifth-placed team in the Superliga standings.
El Taladro’s back line looks rock-solid at the start of the new season. Banfield shipped just two goals in four games and they’ve actually dine well without even being prolific up front. The team scored only three goals at the same time.
The visitors head into this off the back of a narrow 1-0 victory over Patronato at Estadio Florencio Sola. Enzo Kalinski made the difference netting the only goal of the game right at the half-hour mark. Banfield shipped just one goal in last four games across competitions, a streak which includes a goalless draw away at Defensa y Justicia in Copa Argentina.
Huracan vs Banfield: Head-to-head
Huracan lead the head to head tie by two wins ahead of their 23rd encounter with Banfield.
Teams met each other twice this year.
Globo won the Torneo de Verano clash 1-0 in January, while teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw in the league tie two months later.
Just one of last five head to head affairs produced three or more goals.
Huracan vs Banfield: Prediction
Huracan finished the last season at the sky-high fourth place in the league standings. However, they are nowhere near such form a t the start of the 2018/19 campaign. Globo actually just clinched their maiden win of the season in the previous round, beating San Martin San Juan 1-2 on the road. They still only have five points in four matches and are desperate for spoils here against Banfield.
The value is, however, with the visitors who will come into the game in much higher spirits. They can be backed at 1.75 not to lose here. Alternatively, you won’t make a mistake backing a low-scoring contest knowing that the visitors played super tight at the back so far in the campaign.
