San Lorenzo vs Atletico Tucuman
Date: 30th November 2017
Kick off at 22:15 UK / 23:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Pedro Bidegain (Buenos Aires).
San Lorenzo kept ground on Superliga leaders Boca Juniors with back-to-back wins over San Martin San Juan and Argentinos Juniors.
The Saint will aim towards making it three on the trot this Thursday when they are to host the mid-table Atletico Tucuman at Estadio Pedro Bidegain.
Manager Claudio Biaggio can be satisfied with the start to the campaign he has had with San Lorenzo who hold the second place with six wins and only a single defeat in ten opening outings in Superliga.
The lone defeat came at the start of the month when Banfield surprisingly took points from Estadio Pedro Bidegain.
Team’s biggest strength is the stern defensive line which is very tough to break down, while the job on the other end is mainly done by the likes of Nicolas Blandi and Ezequiel Cerutti who have combined the total of nine goals so far in the season.
Tucuman opened the new campaign in a poor fashion, but they managed to move closer to the top half after a series of super strong defensive displays.
The visitors kept their net untouched in four straight matches in all competitions before conceding last weekend in a narrow 1-0 away loss at mid-table rivals Estudiantes.
San Lorenzo vs Atletico Tucuman: Head to head
Atletico Tucuman came on top when the two sides met each other in mid-April this year (1-0) to end San Lorenzo’s two-win streak back from 2010 when they’ve last faced each other.
Both of the last two meetings between the two sides offered the same 1-0 scoreline.
San Lorenzo vs Atletico Tucuman: Prediction
