After an interesting encounter in the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana, Rosario Central and Deportivo Tachira will meet yet again but this time the Academy will be the host this time. The teams will meet at Estadio Gigante de Arroyito on Friday for a spot in the quarter-finals of the tournament.
Rosario lost the lead twice in the first leg of the playoffs last time. The match ended in a 2-2 draw hosted by Tachira with three goals coming in the second leg of the game.
The host has only two wins in their last eight matches in the schedule. The Academy will come into the game on the back of a three-game winless run. Their previous encounter was on the road and they lost to Godoy Cruz with a 2-1 scoreline in Liga Profesional.
In the meantime, the visitor has been unbeaten in their last seven clashes. The away team has two draws in their recent three matches across all major contests. They will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw at home with Rosario in the first leg of the fixture.

Rosario Central vs Deportivo Tachira Prediction
The first leg encounter produced four goals in total in the 2-2 draw. The teams will play with the same morale on Friday which is why we can expect a couple of goals in ninety minutes.
Rosario Central has lost only one of their last ten home matches in the schedule. They lost none of their recent four fixtures at home in a row.
Besides, just two wins in Deportivo Tachira’s last ten away fixtures in their form doesn’t pose a huge threat to the host. Hence, the host has an edge in the fixture over the guest.
