Defensa y Justicia to Win

Although Defensa y Justicia was very poor last season in Copa de Liga Profesional, they were still better than Newell’s. Meanwhile, Defensa y Justicia was second at the end of Liga Profesional, taking the title of vice-champions of Argentina.

On the other hand, Newell’s Old Boys also failed to impress in Liga Profesional. So, while we expect a tough game, we can see Defensa y Justicia starting the new season with a win.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Four of the previous five h2h duels between Newell’s Old Boys and Defensa y Justicia have gone under 2.5 total goals and we can see that being the case once again in this game.

That being said, Defensa y Justicia averaged 2.77 and 2.68 goals per game last season in Copa de Liga Profesional and Liga Profesional respectively, while Newell’s Old Boys averaged 2.69 and 2.24 goals per game in those competitions last season.

Both Teams to Score – No

We did not see both teams score goals in any of the last five h2h duels between Newell’s Old Boys and Defensa y Justicia, so it’s safe to assume that we won’t see both teams score again in their upcoming match.

We are confident in this prediction even though both teams scored in more than 50% of all matches played by both teams in Copa de Liga Profesional and Liga Profesional last season.

Newell’s Old Boys vs Defensa y Justicia preview: Can the guests do as well as last season in Liga Profesional?

Newell’s Old Boys

The team from Rosario, Santa Fe didn’t do well last season since they were 23rd in the aggregate standings at the end of the season. Newell’s Old Boys first ended the Copa de Liga Profesional portion of the season in the last place in their group, before doing a bit better in Liga Profesional in which they finished in the 19th spot in the standings.

Defensa y Justicia

Last season, we saw two faces of Defensa y Justicia. The first one was not so great after the team finished Copa de Liga Profesional as 11th team in their group with 13 teams. However, the team then put up some great performances in Liga Profesional and they finished it only behind River Plate. Overall, the team was seventh in the aggregate standings, which was only enough for a spot in Copa Sudamericana.
