Atletico Tucuman vs San Lorenzo Betting Tips – Argentina: Match counting towards the 3rd round of the second phase of the Diego Maradona Cup
Atletico Tucuman vs San Lorenzo at the Estadio Monumental José Fierro, in Tucumán. Tuesday, December 29, 2020.
Atletico Tucuman are running after the leaders looking to reverse the disadvantage acquired over the first two rounds.
The team began by losing at home against Banfield, by 2-0, in a match in which they have managed to have a lot of ball possession, but struggled a lot to penetrate a well consolidated defensive system from the visitors.
Against Talleres Cordoba, in the second round, they have maintained their 4-4-2 system, with two lines of defenders, and a vertical tactic using their wingers. This time, seeking a more vertical game, attracting the lines from the home team.
They have scored a penalty early in the game, but they were very passive for the rest of the match. They have called Talleres to their field, and conceded the draw in the second half, after a cowardly offensive game.
In the first phase they have managed to be more effective, with a more aggressive game, winning all their games and scoring a total of 19 goals in just 6 matches. Their system has also changed a lot when they have faced stronger teams.
San Lorenzo started this second phase as one of the favorite teams to fight for the first position in this group. The team, however, is not the most purposeful of this phase, and their trump card would be a more solid defensive game.
In the first phase they have gone through as first in their group, scoring a total of 8 goals in 6 games and conceding one goal only.
Their group was not the most complicated one, but it was a business card for the second phase, since it would impose a strong marking game, controlling their opponents.
The problem came when they had to be propositive. In the first round they have lost by 2-0 at home against Talleres, even with ball possession they have felt a lot of difficulties to be really dangerous, and they couldn’t manage to control the visitors’ ascents in the pitch. It was rare the times when they have managed to get close to the opponent’s goal, managing only two shots on goal in the entire game.
In the second round, once again at home, the same problem persisted against Colon. The team still managed to get out in front, had a little more ball possession, but could not create real scoring chances.
Colon were far more dangerous, reached San Lorenzo’s goal, and managed to turn the match around in the second half. A penalty in the final minutes sealed the draw, which was not fair at all for the home team.
At their home venue, where they needed to be more active, San Lorenzo failed. As visitors they should be more cadenced, trying a game of reaction and solid without the ball, because in theory they have no obligation whatsoever to be the ones proposing the actions of the game.

Atletico Tucuman vs San Lorenzo Betting Tips:
Even so, I do not see potential in this team to be truly dangerous. They attack sporadically, and a win here would be almost occasional. Tucuman are not a model of regularity, but their campaign in general shows me that they possess more tools, but need to try a more aggressive game, as they did in the first phase.
