Sarmiento vs Defensa y Justicia
Argentina – Liga Profesional
Date: Friday, 15 July 2022
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Eva Peron.
Sarmiento are comfortably placed in the mid-table of the Argentine top flight and it is majorly due to their consistent performances at home. At this venue they have found the back of the net at a good rate and they have also seldom lost here.
Their immediate objective would be to make a push to get into one of the top tier spots and it seems that they have a great opportunity coming up.
They are pitted against one of the worst teams in the league, Defensa y Justicia. Not only are they placed second to last in the table but they are also the only squad in the whole tournament to still register a win this season.
Going on, they also have a 100-percentage losing record on the road barring a single fixture and most importantly, they have a poor head-to-head record against this opponent over the years.
By the looks of things, it is expected that Sarmiento will post the 3 points on the board this Friday.
