On the other hand, Rosario has marked only one win in their recent three overall fixtures. The win did come in their prior clash against Gimnasia LP with a 1-0 scoreline.
To make things worse, Rosario has won only one of their recent five away fixtures. That away win against River Plate in early November was their previous away win. In sharp contrast, the host has stayed unbeaten in their last five home matches with just two draws in it.
As such, the home team will probably show more composure in the game to create more opportunities before the final whistle. So, the punters can go with Defense y Justicia as the favorites to win in the encounter.
Furthermore, Defensa has averaged only 1.0 goals per match in the campaign this season. Hence, there is a probability that the game will end with under 2.5 goals.
