The intensity of football encounters is set to increase at the weekend. Including a Latin American tournament as exotic to us as the Argentine Primera. Saturday afternoon will see a sizeable portion of the schedule for the whole of the next round. Rosario Central and Jimnasia (La Plata) will also take to the pitch. Which of them can win now? The website’s analysts have compiled an exclusive pool of predictions for the June 25, 2022 clash. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet login.
Rosario Central want to start a new era
The Rascals have won both the national championship (long ago, last time in 1987) and the cup (and here just recently, in 2018). Last year’s draw brought only 16th place. And the Diego Maradona Trophy in the spring ended in failure: they took only 14 points from 14 games, and closed the standings in their group. After a poor start in the Primera (0-0 at home to Lanús, 0-2 away to Uracan), there has once again been a change of manager. Carlos Tevez, who only recently finished his career as a player, was chosen. The team won immediately, with a late goal from Servio beating Godoy Cruz on penalties. But then, the ex-forward was only just beginning to take charge. And nothing in particular has changed under him “on the plus side”: Velez Sarsfield lost 0-2.
Gymnasium (La Plata) are looking good this year
The gymnasts have never been national champions, although they have taken 2nd place more than once. And in general there was only a victory in a certain Centenary Cup in 1994. In general, the results were mostly mediocre, such as 11th place in the Primera-2021. This year, we have been able to show some good results. Nestor Gorosito’s side were just a little short of making the playoffs in the Diego Maradona Trophy – they took 24 points, but only 5th place in their group. After that, they managed to break through further in the cup by beating a certain Liniers. The La Plata representative got off to a good start in the Primera. They beat Patronato at home, with Estudiantes and Platense away it was 1-1. Before the current encounter, they hosted Racings and made a confident 3-1.
In the last 6 matches, the host side has at least not lost. Moreover, the hosts have won four times, including in both of their last two fixtures.
Rosario Central plays at home and is given a slight advantage in this regard. But it is not convincing, so it is better to limit ourselves to neutral ‘total over 2.0’ (odds – 1.7).
