San Martin de Tucuman vs Gimnasia LP
Argentina – Superliga
Date: Tuesday, 4 September 2018
Kick-Off at 01:00 UK
Venue: Estadio La Ciudadela (San Miguel de Tucuman).
In the fourth round of the Argentine Superliga, San Martin de Tucuman are going to take on Gimnasia LP.
The hosts got promoted as they have been the best team in the playoffs. Although they missed the chance to snatch a direct place in the Superliga after suffering a defeat in the latest round of the regular season, they managed to find their place in the top flight.
Claudio Bieler and the lads needed to skip past four opponents and go through a much harder way, but they celebrated a 5-2 aggregate win over Sarmiento in the finals.
San Martin de Tucuman want to remain in the top tier in the next season as well and they’ve started the campaign by winning a point from the first two matches.
Home side needs to start winning as soon as possible in order to stand the chance of avoiding the relegation.
The visitors managed to celebrate a victory in the opening round of the season, however they suffered two defeats afterwards. They had a pretty disappointing season last time as they finished as 23rd from the total of 28 teams.
Pedro Troglio’s side hasn’t been too efficient, while their defence should have been much tighter.
The visitors have also been playing pretty bad at away grounds as they managed to get back home with just one victory they need to start scoring more often if they want to enter a series of good results.

San Martin de Tucuman vs Gimnasia LP: Prediction
This one is going to be really tight clash and very hard to predict as well. As both sides are in a similar form and they are playing pretty disciplined, we believe that the greatest battle is going to be fought in the middle of the park. The fairest outcome in this one should be a draw.
Both sides have issues in converting their chances into goals as they managed to find the back of the net just once so far. Their clashes have been low scoring ones as well and in this one we shouldn’t expect to see more than two goals.
