Reason For Argentinos Juniors vs Sport Huancayo Predictions

  • Argentinos won 2 of their 3 Sudamericana home games to nil last year.
  • Argentinos have conceded just once in their last 4 Sudamericana outings.
  • Huancayo have lost 7 of their last 8 Sudamericana away games; failing to score in 6 of said fixtures.
  • Huancayo have lost their last 2 Sudamericana away games by 2-0 margins.

Argentinos looking to open up advantage

After making a respectable run to the last 16 of the Sudamericana last year, Argentinos come into the competition this season hopeful of going far once again. On paper, this tie with Peruvians Huancayo is one El Bicho should be winning without any issues and they’ll be looking to do most of the work at the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona on Tuesday.

Currently 4th in the Superliga Argentina, Argentinos are enjoying an excellent campaign and that has them come into the game in confident mood. Unbeaten in 10 home matches, of which they’ve won 6, the hosts are typically strong on their own patch and that leaves their prospects looking strong in this game.

Huancayo looking to stay in the tie

Meanwhile, if Huancayo can keep the score down in Buenos Aires, they could be in with half a chance of causing an upset in the second leg but there can be no doubting they are huge underdogs overall. Indeed, far from a powerhouse even in Peru, Huancayo don’t really have the resources or quality required to compete on the continental scene and an early exit looks highly likely.

Huancayo crashed out at this very stage last year to Uruguayans Wanderers and their away record in the competition is simply awful, leaving confidence low prior to arrival in Argentina. Indeed, the Preuvians have lost 7 of their last 8 Sudamericana trips and having also failed to even so much as score in 6 of said fixtures, the threat they pose on Tuesday is expected to be minimal.

A comfortable home win is expected

Ultimately, there only looks like being one winner here and that’s Argentinos Juniors. They are clear favourites in the match and tie overall and will want to put themselves in a good position prior to a more complicated second leg.

All things considered, we see good value in backing Argentinos to win to nil and are more than happy to get behind said line with maximum confidence. Argentinos have conceded just once over their last 4 Sudamericana games and with Huancayo having lost their last 2 Sudamericana away games by 2-0 margins, that’s a scoreline we fancy being repeated on Tuesday. Huancayo will try to sit deep throughout the 90 minutes but we can’t picture Argentinos having any issues in breaking them down.
