Argentinos Junior vs Defensa y Justicia Preview

Argentino Juniors could take themselves to just one point behind Defense y Justica when they lock horns at the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona on Saturday. The hosts currently sit in the top half of the table at 10th – with 29 points. After having a miserable month of May, where Gabriel Milito’s side registered just one win across six matches, their campaign looks to be coming back on track with three wins in their last three matches.  Late 94th minute winner by Heredia against Atletico Platenese saw the hosts get their first win in four, followed by yet another dominant performance in the Copa Libertadores. Heredia made it three out of three from the bench after he scored the winner last Tuesday in a 1-0 away victory against Velez Sarsfield. Although Milito’s men have been solid at the back, keeping nine clean sheets this year domestically – they have been struggling to score and haven’t scored a goal in the opening half of the game since May 12. They might have to yet again reply on their super sub Heredia to save the day off the bench and make it four in four.

Defensa on the other hand have enjoyed a good campaign this season, currently sitting seventh in the table with 33 points after 20 games played. They had an unbeaten start to the season, having not conceded a single goal in their opening three away games. The 1-0 loss to River Plate on Sunday was the only second loss in their last 14 matches in all competitions, keeping seven clean sheets during this period and having conceded more than once on only one occasion. Julio Vaccari’s side have been very strong defensively, especially away from home – keeping six clean sheets on their visits while having conceded just 4 goals, the best in the league among all teams. Defensa will also take confidence from the fact that they have won all of their last four meetings with Argentinos Juniors – keeping three clean sheets in the process. With two good defense in display, neutrals could be in for a low scoring affair, however with Defensa’s current form, they could have a slight edge over the hosts.
