Belgrano vs Newells Old Boys
Argentina – Primera Division
Date: Thursday, 22nd June 2017
Kick off at 21:10 UK/ 22:10 CET
Venue: Estadio Eva Peron de Junin.
Sarmiento will host Patronato in their last home fixture in the elite class of the Argentine football.
The hosts will move to the second tier of the Argentine football next year even though they have not been the weakest team of the competition in this term of Primera Division.
The dreadful run of six losses and two draws from early April to late May caused the relegation for the team led by Fernando Quiroz.
Sarmiento did manage to see an end to this poor streak with back-to-back wins over Defensa y Justicia (league) and Berown de Adrogue (Copa Argentina), but they quickly returned to the old habits allowing as many as five goals in a catastrophe against Velez Sarsfield on Sunday.
The hosts will have the chance to make it three games on the bounce without conceding a single goal on the home pitch knowing that Patronato have been struggling a lot with the efficiency in the final third lately.
Ruben Forestello’s men failed to score a single goal in three of their last four league outings. On the bright side, Patronato have been undefeated in last six games on the road, each of which have seen less than three goals scored.
Sarmiento vs Patronato: Head to head
The visitors have the chance to make it all even at three wins, draws and losses for both teams with a potential victory on Thursday.
The two sides have already played each other a month ago when Sarmiento and Patronato shared a point in a 2-2 draw at Estado Presbitero Bartolome.
Sarmiento vs Patronato: Prediction
We can’t see such high–scoring contest this time around since none of the two teams can be proud of their attacking form in the finish of the season.
