These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Defensa y Justicia to Win
Both teams have struggled at the start of the new season of Copa de la Liga Profesional, winning just one point each from the first two rounds of the competition.
However, Defensa y Justicia was much better last season and they are officially the vice-champions of Liga Profesional, so our prediction is for the guests to take the win in this game.
San Lorenzo and Defensa y Justicia to Draw at Half Time
Although we can see Defensa y Justicia takin three points from this match, we don’t expect that to be an easy task. In fact, we can see the teams tied at half time.
After all, three of the four matches played by San Lorenzo and Defensa y Justicia in the first two rounds of the new Copa de la Liga Profesional season have been draws at half time.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
While we’ve seen three or more goals in three of the last five h2h meetings between San Lorenzo and Defensa y Justicia, we don’t see that happening again in their upcoming duel.
The main reason lies in the fact that San Lorenzo averaged just 0.50 goals per game in the first two rounds of the season. Meanwhile, Defensa y Justicia averaged 2.50 goals per game so far.
San Lorenzo vs Defensa y Justicia preview: A very close duel
The team that was sixteenth last season in the aggregate standings is not among the favourites to make the playoffs this season in Copa de la Liga Profsional, so the fact that they only got one point from the first two rounds of the new season is not really surprising. On top of that, Santiago Vergini and Alejandro Donatti are out of the next game with injuries, while Yeison Gordillo is suspended.
Defensa y Justicia
Many were surprised by the fact that Defensa y Justicia finished second in Liga Profesional last season, especially after their poor performances in Copa de la Liga Profesional , which ultimately cost the team a spot in Copa Libertadores. Still, Defensa will play in Copa Sudamericana at least, but the didn’t have the best start of the new season with a draw and a loss in the first two rounds of Copa de la Liga Profesional. On the bright side, Defensa y Justicia has a clean bill of health.
