Estudiantes will welcome Gimnasia La Plata to for a matchday 1 fixture in Argentina Primera División. The last meeting on 20th March 2022 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met twelve times in the most recent seasons. Estudiantes has won 5 matches, and Gimnasia La Plata failed to win on every occasion. Recent outings average 1.83 goals, while both teams score 33% of the time.
Estudiantes’s last game in the Argentina Primera División against Argentinos Juniors at home ended in a 1-1 draw. They were lucky to collect one point since they played less with the ball and attempted fewer shots. Estudiantes scored before halftime in the 32nd minute.
Gimnasia La Plata’s recent game against Newell’s Old Boys ended in a home 3-1 win. Although El Lobo didn’t match their opponent’s intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Gimnasia La Plata had good chances in both halves and scored in the 17th, 48th and 54th minute.
Since the start of the season, El Orgullo de la Ciudad is more dominant at home. They have six wins out of 8 games on home soil. Although Estudiantes is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 13% home clean sheets.
Gimnasia La Plata has picked up 15 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Mensanas wins 1.43 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Estudiantes or Draw.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.41 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 72% of Estudiantes’s home and Gimnasia La Plata’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 69% of Estudiantes’s home and Gimnasia La Plata’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
