Lanus vs Huracan
Argentina – Primera Division
Date: Thursday, 22nd June 2017
Kick off at 21:10 UK/ 22:10 CET
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Lanus.
Lanus and Huracan will come into the penultimate round clash with different aspirations.
The hosts need three points to secure the top ten finish and a place in Copa Sudamericana next year, while the visitors have not yet secured the survival in the top flight of the Argentine football.
Lanus will enter the match full of confidence after an impressive run of six consecutive wins.
It has, however, come to an end last weekend when the team got a point from the visit to sixth-placed Newell’s Old Town.
Jorge Almiron can be thrilled with his team’s defensive line as Granate has allowed only two goals in last seven league fixtures.
Huracan managed a highly-important 1-0 win over Union Santa Fe on Sunday to make a huge step towards securing a new Primera Division season.
Juan-Manuel Azconzabal is well aware of the toughness his team is up in the visit to Lanus and he could even possibly rest some of his star men for the last round’s clash with fellow strugglers Belgrano on the home patch.
Lanus vs Huracan: Head to head
Lanus have been much more successful winning eight out of 17 meetings with Huracan who came out victorious on only three occasions.
However, one of three wins for Balon came just in their last visit to Estadio Ciudad de Lanus back in May 2016.
Lanus vs Huracan: Prediction
Lanus have been way too good over the last couple of weeks and we can’t see how they would drop home points against the relegation-threatened Huracan.
Globo conceded as many as five goals in back-to-back losses on the road to Independiente and Olimpo which gives a decent value to the 10/11 odds offered on Lanus to bag two or more on Thursday.
