Tips and Prediction
The northern Argentines have been catching up since ending Group B’s opening phase second to last with 15 points.
Given that there are still more than 20 games to be played, Sergio Rondina’s team is just one victory away from matching their total from the first round.
All five of their second-half goals have come after struggling to get off to a good start in the first. This has been made possible by half-time adjustments and minor tactical changes.
In league games this year, Central Corboda has never lost after scoring first. They have also not lost 1-0 leads in either of their two games this round where they took the lead.
In their five games played in round number two, they displayed far more patience despite being an aggressive club that likes to play on the front foot.
Argentinos Juniors have maintained a strong home record, tying 1-1 with Arsenal Sarandi last Sunday to extend their unbeaten streak to seven straight games at Estadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Three of their five goals scored this round came in the first half, demonstrating their ability to break through early in games.
Unfortunately for manager Gabriel Milito, his team has struggled on the road. In their two away games in the second round, they failed to score and managed only five shots on goal combined in 1-0 losses to Sarmiento and Newell’s Old Boys.
Despite having less than 60 percent of the ball over the course of 90 minutes in two of their last five games, Argentina is a difficult team to defeat when they have the ball. In three of their last five games, they have had over 70 percent of the possession.
Despite having a varied record, this club appears to have a decent mix of technical and creative midfielders, strong team cohesion, and the ability to manage the game’s general tempo.
We expect Juniors to have the ball for extended periods of time because both of these teams have played well with a hint of quality, but neither has been consistent. Juniors, however, has unable to capitalize on their extended possession.
