Newells Old Boys vs Godoy Cruz
Argentina – Primera Division
Date: Tuesday, 27th June 2017
Kick-off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Marcelo Bielsa, Rosario.

Newell’s Old Boys will be looking to finish the season in style with victory over Godoy Cruz in this mid-week fixture. The club has a tiny chance to still qualify for the Copa Libertadores but a lot has to happen in order for that to be achieved. Still the good news is that they should definetly qualify for the Copa Sudamericana.

The club have been poor in the last 3 weeks which has seen no wins and fans have pointed to this for the reason there will more than likely be no Libertadores action this year.

Form all round has gone downhill for the team who has just 1 win in their last 4 home games despite having overall one of the best home records in the league.

Godoy Cruz have played some great football this season but ultimately have come up short and on 40 points have no chance for any play-offs. They have lost 2 of their last 3 games as the club might be playing in ‘holiday mode’.

However the club have been brilliant recently on the road going 4 games unbeaten and that includes winning their last 3 matches in a row.
