Defensa y Justicia vs Banfield
Defensa y Justicia made an excellent recovery from their first defeat in the Superliga by beating Aldosivi 1-0 away in Mar del Plata, thanks to a direct free-kick scored by Matias Rojas. El Halcon keeps fighting for their first league title, sitting in second on 48 points (four behind leaders Racing Club who already played this round). Defensa won seven of their last eight league games, and their 1-0 home loss to Boca Juniors two weeks ago stopped a four-game winning run at Norberto Tomaghello’s stadium.
Banfield managed only one victory in six games since coach Hernan Crespo’s arrival, with the other games ending in three draws and two losses. Last time out, they lost 2-1 at home to Atletico Tucuman in an entertaining match. Therefore, El Taladro remains on 27 points, three behind the last Copa Sudamericana spot. On away turf, Banfield collected four points from nine available in 2019.
I think Defensa y Justicia is clearly the better side here and they should take advantage of Racing’s draw in this round to get only 1 point behind with only 3 matches left in the season.
