Defensa y Justicia to Win
While Defensa y Justicia started the new season in Copa de la Liga Profesional with a loss to Newell’s Old Boys, Racing Club managed to get a draw in their duel against Gimnasia La Plata.
However, we can see the home team winning this game. After all, Defensa y Justicia was ahead of Racing in the aggregate standings last season and they are the vice-champions of Liga Profesional. Also, Racing failed to beat Defensa y Justicia in their last five meetings, with three of them ending in draws.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
While only two of the last five h2h duels between Defensa y Justicia and Racing Club have gone over 2.5 total goals, we expect that to happen in this game.
After all, we saw an average of 2.80 goals per game in those five most recent duels between Defensa y Justicia vs Racing Club, so we could see another high scoring game between these two teams.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
The last five head-to-head meetings between Defensa y Justicia and Racing Club have ended with both teams scoring and we would hardly be surprised if the same happened in their next game.
That being said, we did not see both teams score in any of the matches played by Defensa y Justicia and Racing Club in the first round of the new Copa de la Liga Profesional season.
Defensa y Justicia vs Racing Club preview:
Defensa y Justicia
The current vice-champions of Liga Profesional didn’t have the best of starts in the new edition of Copa de la Liga Profesional since their first-round game against Newell’s Old Boys ended with a loss. It seems that this competition doesn’t suit Defensa y Justicia since they were 11th of 13 teams in their group last season as well, which is why they will only play in Copa Sudamericana this season despite finishing second in Liga Profesional. On the bright side, the team has a clean bill of health.
After reaching the final of the Copa de la Liga Profesional last season where they lost to Colon, the fans of Racing Club are probably hoping that their team can take one step further this season and get the trophy. However, Racing Club was unconvincing at the start of the new season, with a scoreless draw at home against Gimnasia La Plata. Arias, Cristaldo, and Schelotto are all out with injuries right now.
