Kick-Off at 21:45 UK
Venue: Estadio La Ciudadela (San Miguel de Tucuman).
San Martin de Tucuman and Union will wrap up the 2nd round of Argentine Superliga on Monday evening.
The host got recently promoted and this is going to be their first match of the season in the Superliga. They finished as third last season in the second tier of Argentine league pyramid and managed to earn the promotion through the playoffs.
In the finals, they managed to catch up the opposition’s narrow advantage and book their ticket for the Superliga with a 5-1 victory. They have been pretty tight in the back although Ruben Forestello’s side haven’t produced too many goals.
San Martin de Tucuman are looking for a good start which should help them keep their spot in the top flight.
The visitors managed to finish in the top ten last season and snatch their place for the Copa Sudamericana. They have been paying very tight and although they suffered just six defeats, Union had too many draw matches.
Franco Soldano and the lads haven’t been too bad at away grounds as they managed to get back home with a win four times.
Union opened the new campaign with a narrow victory over Aldosivi and they were generally involved in low scoring matches recently.
San Martin de Tucuman vs Union: Head-to-head
Union have been a bit more successful in their head to head clashes as they celebrated three wins over their opponents, while the hosts booked two victories. In their six encounters, these two teams split the points just once.
San Martin de Tucuman vs Union: Prediction
Tight clash is expected and unlike their recent head to head matches, this one could end with a draw. San Martin de Tucuman are pretty good at home ground, but the visitors are more than capable of remaining undefeated.
The crowd was able to enjoy more than two goals just once and since Union’s last five matches remained under 2.5 margin, this one shouldn’t be much different.
