San Martin San Juan vs Temperley
Argentina – Primera Division
Date: Thursday, 15th June 2017
Kick off at 23:45 UK/ 00:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Norberto Tito Tomaghello.
Defensa y Justicia are looking to bounce back after an unexpected defeat to Sarmiento before the international break this week when they host Independiente in the postponed match of the 17th round of Primera Division.
Defensa y Justicia
Los Halcones de Varela have been enjoying an ominous form over the last couple of weeks when they celebrated four consecutive wins without conceding a single goal along the way.
However, Sebastian Beccacece’s men ruined the streak with a shocking loss to out-of-form Sarmiento earlier in the month.
The team has nowhere to go in the final four rounds of the season as they currently sit at the 13th position.
The story is quite similar with Independiente who are currently five points above Defensa y Justicia in the league standings.
The Red Devils were undefeated in 17 straight matches in all competitions before a painful 3-0 loss to Boca Juniors in the previous round.
Defensa y Justicia vs Independiente: Head to head
This will only be the sixth head to head meeting between the two sides.
It is interesting to note that four of five clashes between Defensa y Justicia and Independiente ended with less than three goals scored.
Defensa y Justicia vs Independiente: Prediction
Since both teams mostly showed rock-solid defense in May, we believe there is a high chance for the H2H tradition to be continued.
The only head to head encounter from Estadio Norberto Tito Tomaghello was played in November 2013 and it has seen a goalless draw. Such scenario is far from impossible to be seen on this occasion and the bookmakers are more than generous offering the sky-high 11/2 odds for such a pick.
