Independiente vs Banfield Prediction
Independiente were on the road the last match-day and were held by Aldosivi to a goalless draw. Meanwhile, Banfield had failed to take advantage of their home status, and man-advantage over Gimnasia, the previous game week, and had to settle for a 1-1 draw.
In regards to the result of the fixture, consider the form of both teams. Independiente were unbeaten in eight of their former eleven games, and at present are on an unbeaten run of four matches. They had also scored two or more goals in three of their last four fixtures, and at home remained invincible in 12 of their previous 14 match-ups.
In addition, they won ten of these fourteen games and had two separate four-game winning runs in the midst of this stretch.
On the other hand, Banfield may have avoided losses in their latest games, but do note that they were able to record just five wins from their preceding twenty-three fixtures, and just three from their previous eleven on the road.
Moreover, Independiente had registered four of the previous five h2h wins and had lost just once at home in the last ten years against this opponent.
Considering these arguments, count on Independiente to make the most of their home status, and avoid the loss at the least this Sunday. But a double chance is too short on odds to back.
However, considering the inconsistent defense of the hosts, and Banfield’s recent shift of form, there’s a more than likely chance for the hosts to concede at some point in the game, thus satisfying the BTTS option.
