Lanus vs Estudiantes
Date: Sunday, 1 March 2020
Kick-Off at 22:40 UK
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Lanus, Buenos Aires.
Lanus have established themselves as one of the biggest threats to the leading duo Boca Juniors and River Plate. Even though this team is not involved in the title race this time, they had numerous victories and great performances against best squads in the country.
Lanus welcome Estudiantes this Sunday night, being in a position where they need three points very much to make a move to 3rd position on the table. Visitors also have a small chance to win 9th place and play Copa Sudamericana qualifiers. All in all, we should witness an interesting clash.
Lanus vs Estudiantes Head-to-head
Five out of the last six head to head meetings between these teams were not interesting to watch in particular, ending with two goals total or less.

The last h2h game was in late 2018 and it ended without a winner 1-1 FT.
Lanus vs Estudiantes Prediction
Lanus are entering this clash with very questionable form. Luis Zubeldia’s men have won only one out of the last five encounters, beating the weakest squad in the league Godoy Cruz. Games against Argentinos Juniors, Atletico Tucuman and Newell’s ended without a winner.
When it comes to home record, Lanus have a lot of room for optimism. They have secured six victories at this turf, drew three times and lost only one duel. The average number of goals in those duels is 2.30 per match.
Estudiantes have big troubles to collect points on the road. They were defeated in 50% of away matches so far, so we see good value in backing Lanus to win at 2.10. The average number of goals in Estudiantes’ matches so far is also around 2.00, so going for 2 or 3 goals total bet seems like a good alternative.
Lanus vs Estudiantes Bet Tips
Home win @ 2.10
Two or three goals total @ 2.00.
