Tip Reasoning

Saturday’s Superliga Argentina action sees Defensa y Justicia doing battle with San Lorenzo. The hosts will be looking to keep up the heat on league leaders Racing by claiming all 3 points.

After continually punching well above their weight over the last few season, this campaign looks to be the one in which Defensa y Justicia really defy all odds. With a tiny ground, a playing budget dwarfed by most of the league and very few supporters, it’s almost unthinkable that Defensa can be where they currently are but excellent management and a clear and defined, progressive style of play currently has them as the Superliga’s only unbeaten outfit, with 11 wins from 15 games seeing them just 2 points shy of top spot.

A 1-0 win away at River Plate in midweek more than showed El Halcón’s title credentials and they’ll be desperate to back said three points up with another win on Friday. Accustomed to blowing sides away at the Estadio Norberto “Tito” Tomaghello with their high intensity football, Sebastian Beccacece’s troops arrive for the match with confidence sky high and with 5 wins from their last 6 home matches behind them.

Meanwhile, San Lorenzo find themselves at the opposite end of the spectrum; in the sense that they are one of the biggest clubs in Argentina but are massively under-performing. Currently 22nd with just 14 points from 15 games, it’s been a miserable campaign for El Ciclon so far and the side look a shadow of what they once were.

Simply put, the visitors squad lacks star quality all over the pitch and boss Jorge Almiron looks to have a real job on his hands. San Lorenzo pulled off a real coup in attracting Almiron towards the end of last year but so far, he’s failed to bring about an upturn in performance and the team have now failed to win any of their last 8 games; a run unlikely to end here given that they’ve not won on the road all season.

Ultimately, in terms of size and resource, San Lorenzo blow Defensa out of the water but on the pitch it’s a completely different story, with Defensa currently one of the nation’s strongest teams and looking like real title contenders.

This group of Defensa players fear nobody and at current prices, we’re more than happy to back them and feel they’ll have far too much for the visitors. Defensa have scored at least twice in 5 of their last 6 home matches and with San Lorenzo so weak on the road and not much better in general, a comfortable 2-0 margin of home victory could well be on the cards.
