Union Santa Fe vs Independiente
Argentina – Primera Division
Date: Friday, 23rd June 2017
Kick off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: Estadio 15 de Abril.
Independiente dropped the ball last weekend when they only drew 1-1 on the home pitch with the relegation-threatened Olimpo.
Diablo Rojo thus dropped to the seventh position with only two games left to play until the end of the season.
The visitors still have hopes of catching the forth position (currently three points away), but the victory over Union Santa Fe is an absolute imperative.
Union Santa Fe
The hosts have been miles away from their best form in the finish of the Primera Division campaign.
Pablo Marini’s men won only a single out of last ten matches showing huge issues with the efficiency in the final third.
The weekend has seen Tatengue falling to relegation-threatened Huracan 1-0 on the road.
Ariel Holan as full of praise for his players after a super important 1-2 win over in-form Defensa y Justicia on the road.
The victory over Olimpo would have kept them at the fifth position only a single point behind San Lorenzo and Copa Libertadores spot, but they allowed a second-half equalizer to drop points to Olimpo on Sunday.
Union Santa Fe vs Independiente: Head to head
The draw has been by far the most common of the outcomes in the history of head to head encounters between the two teams.
It happened on as many as ten occasions in 15 matches including each of the previous four meetings.
It is also very interesting to note that only a single out of last ten H2H encounters between Union Santa Fe and Independiente offered more than two goals scored.
