Racing Club vs Newell’s Old Boys Prediction
Racing Club kept their unbeaten streak intact last week by taking down San Lorenzo on the road, albeit by a narrow 1-0 scorecard. The hosts are now without a taste of defeat in their past five games on the trot and have garnered nine points from a possible fifteen.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team have stumbled just once in their previous ten clashes across various competitions.
As of now, Racing Club are sitting fifth on the table, with a one-point cushion over their foes for the week.
Meanwhile, the visitors are on an impressive run of their own at the moment. In fact, the guests have not admitted defeat in the top flight since their 2-3 loss to River Plate, back in early December.
Be that as it may, Newell’s Old Boys have been struggling to get things going on the road this season. Miserably, they have just one measly win to boast of, from their last ten outings.
To make matters worse, the visiting contingent have not secured the bragging rights in their past two visits here either.
Taking into account that Racing Club have also stumbled just once at home so far, Newell’s Old Boys can rule out any hopes of coming out on top in this one.
However, the hosts have shared the spoils in half of their previous six games here. Considering that the visitors have also salvaged a point in each of their past two outings, back a draw no bet, just to be on the safer side.
Furthermore, Racing Club have been tough to breach at home. Impressively, they have kept a clean sheet in four of their last six fixtures here.
Moreover, all but one of their previous six h2h meetings at this stadium have been low scoring affairs. As such, count on goals to be scarce come Friday as well.
