Betting on Banfield
Banfield is currently sitting at eighteenth place in the league standings with nine points, having won two games, drawn three and lost three. The team has only managed to score four goals while conceding six.
In their last match, Banfield went up against Talleres, a squad that has been shaking things up in the Argentine League. Despite having only 37% possession of the ball, Banfield was determined to come out on top. They took an impressive 11 shots on goal, with seven of those being on target. The team committed 11 fouls and conceded nine corners, but managed to clinch a 1-0 victory, putting a damper on Talleres’ aspirations to keep up with the league leader and top contender for the title, River Plate.
Fortunately, Banfield’s three valuable points from that game have now propelled them away from the bottom of the table.
Probable lineup (4-4-2): Facundo Cambeses; Emanuel Coronel, Alejandro Maciel, Aarón Quirós, Pedro Souto; Juan Bizans, Eric Remedí, Alejandro Cabrera, Brahian Alemán; Milton Giménez, Andrés Chávez.
Betting on Platense
El Calamar is currently ranked sixteenth in the Argentine League standings, with 10 points earned from two wins, four draws, and two defeats. While they’ve managed to score 11 goals, they’ve also conceded a staggering 13 goals – the most of any team in the competition.
If we take a look at the averages table, the situation is even more alarming, with Platense ranked at 26th place, just above Sarmiento de Junín and Arsenal. This means that unless they have a stellar season, they’re at risk of relegation.
Martín Palermo, the team’s coach, was on the brink of being let go if they didn’t secure three points against Defensa y Justicia. Fortunately, they managed to pull off a victory against one of the tournament’s top contenders.
Despite only having 37% possession during the game, the team took 13 shots on goal and hit the target three times. Moreover, they committed 11 fouls and both won and conceded seven corners. While victories are certainly a confidence booster, Palermo shouldn’t keep calm just yet. Platense still has a lot of hard work to do to secure their spot in the Argentine League.
Probable lineup (4-1-3-2): Ramiro Macagno; Nicolás Morgantini, Ignacio Vázquez, Marco Pellegrino, Sasha Marcich; Franco Baldassarra; Iván Rossi, Nicolás Castro, Vicente Taborda; Nicolás Servetto, Ronaldo Martínez.
The history between Banfield vs Platense indicates that they met 56 times, of which the Taladro won 18 and Platense 16. However, at JefeBet we believe that this time the three points will go to Saavedra.
Prediction: Platense Moneyline (BAN 1-2 PLA).
