Colon vs Racing
Colon earned their first away point this term last Saturday when they settled for a scoreless draw at Defensa y Justicia. However, the team are dangerously close to falling into the relegation zone following their poor campaign: El Sabalero accumulated only 17 points and failed to win in their last six Superliga games (having lost the previous five). Colon lost three of their last four home encounters, only beating Estudiantes in that time.
Marcelo Diaz’s strike in the 86th minute gave Racing Club a 1-0 home victory in a thrilling derby against Independiente in spite of suffering two red cards. It stopped a five-game winless run of four draws and one loss in the Superliga and allowed the team to make it 31 points, one behind the last Copa Libertadores place. On a sorry note, Racing is on four winless matches on away turf (three draws, one defeat).
Racing Club comes from a huge motivational win in the derby vs Independiente and their morale has to be high enough to beat this very poor Colon.
