Union vs Independiente Match Details:

League: Liga Professional

Teams Preview

Union

Union play hosts at the Estadio 15 de Abril on Sunday to an Independiente side who are just one point above them. They currently sit 24th in the table with 20 points, just 3 points above bottom placed Arsenal Sarandi. Sebastian Mendez’s side continue their struggles at home after being held on for a 1-1 draw against Lanus – after Machuca’s goal was cancelled out by Troyansky’s equalizer eight minutes later.

Union now have just one win in their last 7 home games in all competitions and have the worst record among all teams in the league when it comes to home form – winning just 9 points from 9 games played. However, they are undefeated in their last 5 matches, amassing 3 wins and 2 draws in this period, taking 11 points from an available 15. This run of form has surely lifted the spirits in Sebastian Mendez’s camp, and a win would take them 2 points above their opponents on Sunday.

Independiente

Independiente meanwhile are 22nd in the table with 21 points to their name, 1 above their opponents this weekend. Ricardo Zielinski’s side ended a winless run of three games against a 10-man Sarmiento, registering a convincing 2-0 victory. Prior to this victory, they fell prey to a late goal by sand against Lanus to eventually share points, sandwiched between losses in visits to both Arsenal Sarandi and Godoy Cruz, falling short by a goal each.

Independiente will be looking to get successive wins under their belt for the first time since last September, however, their dire away record doesn’t help the cause – having picked up just 1 win in their 10 away matches this campaign. Although, a matchup against a team with the worst home record would certainly raise a level of optimism among the players. Adding to this misery of their opponents, Independiente will also remember the fact that they are on a five-match unbeaten streak against Union, having kept three clean sheets in the last three meetings against them – which could give them a slight edge heading into Sunday.

Union 1-1 Independiente
