Estudiantes vs Belgrano – Argentinian Superliga: Their moment is still delicate.
Estudiantes knows that they need to present more in order not to falter in this semester, jeopardizing their campaign next season.
Despite only being 1 point away from 7th place, for example, Estudiantes is outside of the Copa Sudamericana zone.
At least, after days with adverse results, Estudiantes, with a lot of difficulty, returned to winning ways on the previous round.
Playing as visitors, they have beaten Patronato by the minimum margin. That win brought new hopes for them, but they have no margin for error.
Making their attack be effective like it was on their last match and ignoring their recent results as hosts is the way to go for Estudiantes to look for strengths here.
The manager Lucas Bernardi won’t be able to count with Iván Gómez, who is suspended. The trend suggests that the manager will rest one or two starters thinking about their Copa Libertadores match.
Pratically everything that was already said also suits Belgrano. The team is some spots behind their opponent here only due to the tiebreak criteria. The difference to the Copa Sudamericana’s spots is only 1 point as well.
Just like their opponents, Belgrano was also being underwhelming, not looking like they were deserving of a spot.
However, on the last round, they had a brilliant performance after a long time, beating the relegated Arsenal by 3-0 at home.
It’s clear that we have to take into consideration the weaknesses of that opponent, but the fact that they didn’t crumble and kept a clean sheet after a long time gives them some hope.
Belgrano hasn’t been showing that much as visitors, but they seem to be the more focused team heading into this match.
The manager Pablo Lavallén will repeat the same starting line-up used on the win over Arsenal.
Estudiantes vs Belgrano – Betting Tip and Prediction:
There are rumours that Estudiantes might rest some pieces for the midweek match in the Copa Libertadores.
I don’t think so. Tonight’s duel is crucial for the club’s next season. Belgrano is heading the same direction, practically.
I believe that this will be a well-played encounter, fierce, but that the home advantage,
allied to the fact that Estudiantes has a little bit more quality give the hosts a slight favouritism here.
