Defensa y Justicia vs Lanus
Argentina – Superliga
Date: Saturday 23rd November 2019
Kick off at 22:40 UK/ 23:40 CET
Venue: Estadio Norberto Tomaghello (Buenos Aires).
These two teams will clash in Argentina on Saturday night and Defensa y Justicia will be looking for all three points when they do. The home side come into this game in 17th place with 14 points and whilst title chances have long since evaporated, they are trying to hold out hope for a play-off place, but they are currently 7 points adrift of that objective.
They have already lost 7 games from 13 played and their last match ended in a 2-0 defeat at Newell’s Old Boys. The home side are not in good form and have won just 1 game from their past five. At home their record is the 2nd worst in the league where from 6 games played, they are yet to win this season.
Lanus on the other hand are the team to watch and they come into this game in 2nd place with the same points as first placed Boca Juniors. However, Lanus’ 3 game winning streak came to an end last time out when Banfield beat them 1-0. The fact that Banfield are in 19th place and this was away from home this result was a big surprise.
Lanus have the 4th best away form and have lost just once on the road and are unbeaten in their last 5 games.

Defensa y Justicia vs Lanus: Prediction
Lanus are the better team but how badly has the defeat by Banfield shaken the club up?
We don’t think it should affect them too much as they dominated possession and had 18 shots. However only one of these shots was on target and the problem for them was they couldn’t crack Banfield’s defence.
The home side are struggling at home and even though this is a risky choice we think backing the draw is the best bet here for minimum stakes.
Both sides would take a point and move on from this game and we expect quite a cautious approach from the teams.
