Rosario Central will welcome Gimnasia La Plata to for a matchday 5 fixture in Argentina Primera División. The last meeting on 29th July 2021 ended in a Gimnasia La Plata 1-0 win. Both sides have met eight times in the most recent seasons. Rosario Central has won 3 matches, and Gimnasia La Plata triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.13 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
Rosario Central’s latest fixture against Vélez Sarsfield ended in an away 2-0 loss. I expected more from La Academia rosarina. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
Gimnasia La Plata’s recent game against Racing Club 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 7th, 40th and 66th minute.
Since the start of the season, Rosario Central is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 9 games on home soil. Los Canallas’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 44% of home games.
Gimnasia La Plata has picked up 14 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Mensanas wins 1.33 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Gimnasia La Plata kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
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 Rosario Central or Draw.
