Rosario Central vs Gimnasia
Rosario Central rescued a point on their visit to Banfield after Cristian Gonzalez’s strike to make it 1-1 in stoppage time. El Canalla suffered a single defeat in their last eight league matches (five victories and two draws) and continue occupying one of the Copa Sudamericana places on 30 points. Central has won their last four home matches in the Superliga.
Gimnasia LP fans will have felt devastated following the side’s 1-1 home in a relegation clash with Patronato after conceding in the 84th minute. El Lobo hasn’t lost any of their last five league games, but four of them ended in draws. Having managed 17 points this season, they remain to occupy the bottom spot of the points average rankings. On a positive note, Gimnasia is on five away games unbeaten, winning three and drawing two.
Rosario Central has scored at least one goal in 8 of their 9 home games and against the desperate Gimnasia, I have to expect them to play an open game with many chances.
