Racing Club to win

Racing wants to compete for everything, and to do so it will have to rotate the squad, opening up the possibility of a slight drop in the level. However, it would be very rare to see Racing lose their unbeaten home record.

So, we expect a home win.

Under 2.5 Goals

The need for the home side is to get good results while some players are rested, so, likely, we will not see an overwhelming Racing. They will be satisfied with scoring once or twice and prevent Union from getting through their defensive line.


Incredibly, the visitors are fourth in Group A of Argentina’s Primera Division and have scored just eight goals in nine games. Their next game is against Racing who are one of the teams with the fewest goals conceded.

For these reasons, we think Union will not score at the Presidente Peron.

Racing Club vs Union Preview: a top-four matchup

Racing Club

Racing Club, leaders of Zone A of the Copa de la Liga Profesional de Fútbol de Argentina, and the only undefeated team in the tournament. In Copa Libertadores, they have started in the same way and already have 6 points from their first 2 games, which makes them the group leaders.

There is no doubt that Racing is enjoying a very sweet moment in both the Copa Sudamericana and the Copa de la Liga. To keep this level, Fernando Gago is using rotation so as not to overload the players and have them all healthy.


Union and Newell played a great match on Saturday on the ninth matchday of the Argentine First Division. The home side won 1-0, thanks to a goal from Gaston Gonzalez, who scored from the penalty spot after 60 minutes.

On the other hand, Union de Santa Fe beat Bolivian side Oriente Petrolero 3-1 with goals from Franco Calderon, Mariano Peralta, and Daniel Juarez. After two games, Union has four points and they are joined at the top of Group H with Junior.
