Venue: Estadio Norberto Tito Tomaghello (Gobernador Julio A. Costa).

Defensa y Justicia vs Talleres Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The previous four games in a row saw the teams at home winning.

  • Six of the last eight wins went to Talleres.
  • It’s been seven years since the guests have registered a victory here.

Defensa y Justicia vs Talleres Prediction

Justicia had taken on the worst of the lot, Godoy Cruz,the last match-day, and the former had the home advantage as well. Expectedly, the team delivered a 2-0 for fans at their home.

Elsewhere, Cordoba were held to a goalless draw in front of their home crowd, by Union Santa Fe, in their latest league encounter.

As far as the result for this upcoming game is concerned, we need to address the form of Talleres on the road. The team were on a five-match losing run away from home, before they managed to win their last two such attempts.

However, it deserves mentioning that one of those two wins had come in the Torneos De Verano, and the other had come against the dead-last placed Godoy Cruz.

Moreover, this season alone, Talleres had two separate four-match losing streaks in away fixtures, and in fact had lost nine of their last thirteen as well.

On the other hand, Justicia are unbeaten in their prior three overall fixtures, and in their last three at home. They had also scored twice or more in two of their previous three overall games, and in their former two in front of the home crowd.

In addition, home teams have been the stronger side in recent h2h clashes. To quote a stat, team that hosted the game won the last four h2h encounters in a row, and kept clean sheets in the previous five. 

On the other hand, teams on the road could win a total of just two such battles in the last 16 years, and not a single one had come in the Superliga.

Likely, we arrive to the conclusion that backing Justicia with a DNB seems the logical option this Sunday.

However, do note that Tallers had scored a total of 16 goals from their prior five games combined, and eight from their previous two on the road. 

They had also recorded six of the preceding eight h2h wins, and they have even outscored the second-placed Argentinos Jrs by a total of six goals this league season.

Couple these with the fact that prior to the current form that Justicia have been showing at home, they had a period this season, where they used to go through losing streaks.

And as such, it’s extremely unlikely that Defensa y Justicia would be keeping a clean sheet this match-day.
