These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Racing Club to Win
The home team reached the final game of Copa de Liga Profesional last season, but they lost to Colon in the match for the title. Still, that result is enough to ensure that they are respected ahead of the new season.
Meanwhile, Gimnasia had an average season and they finished it as the 14th team in the aggregate standings. So, our prediction is for Racing Club to beat Gimnasia La Plata, just like they did in three of their last five h2h duels.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Three of the last five h2h duels between Racing and Gimnasia La Plata have gone over 2.5 total goals and we can see that happening once again on Sunday.
That being said, both teams averaged fewer than 2.50 goals per game last season in Liga Profesional, but their h2h history suggests that we are about to see at least three goals.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams have scored in three of the last five h2h duels between Racing Club and Gimnasia La Plata, so we would hardly be surprised with the same outcome in their upcoming game.
Also, both teams scored in more than 50% of matches played by Racing and gimnasia last season in both Copa de Liga Profesional and Liga Profesional.
Racing Club vs Gimnasia La Plata preview: Can Racing start the new season well?
After barely getting into the playoffs in Copa de la Liga Profesional last season thanks to a better goal difference compared to San Lorenzo, Racing Club managed to reach the final game of the competition, where they lost to Colon. However, the team did very poorly in Liga Profesional, where they finished 15th in the standings. So, Racing ended the season as 10th in the aggregate standings, which means that they will play in Copa Sudamericana this season.
Gimnasia La Plata
The team from La Plata had a solid last season since they were eighth in their group in Copa de la Liga Profesional and then they were eleventh in Liga Profesional. Overall, the team was fourteenth in the aggregate standings, which is basically right in the middle of the table in a league with twenty six clubs.
