Defensa Y Justicia vs Union Santa Fe Predictions

Sunday’s Superliga Argentina clash sees Defensa y Justicia and Union de Santa Fe doing battle. The hosts will be looking for all 3 points as they seek to keep their title dreams alive.

Whatever happens over the next two games, one thing is for certain; Defensa y Justicia can be proud of the campaign they’ve put together. With a tiny ground, few supporters and next to no stature, El Halcon are one of, if not the smallest club in the Superliga but have still managed to go most of the season unbeaten and outperform almost all of the nation’s big names.

4 points behind leaders Racing, Defensa know they have to win this game to keep their chances alive but if they do so and Racing don’t win away at Tigre, the title race will take an extremely interesting dynamic, as the two sides will meet in the final game of the season. Having won 7 of their last 9 home league games, Defensa will certainly be confident coming into this game and will take to the pitch hungry to at least do their part of the bargain.

Meanwhile, whilst not hitting the same heights as Defensa, Union have also had a decent enough season and don’t lack motivation in this trip, with securing continental football for the second year in a row the target. Currently inside the Sudamericana spots with a 2 points margin for error, Leonardo Madelon’s troops are desperate for strong performance in their remaining two games.

Nonetheless, having won just 4 of their last 14 league games, Union manly are where they are due to the strong start to the season they made and they haven’t been particularly impressive in recent months. As such, this trip to a very strong Defensa outfit ranks as a tough ask and the visitors will do well to take anything from the game.

Defensa are typically very dominant on home soil and are capable of totally blowing teams away on their day. They can play at a pace and intensity few teams in Argentina can and with nothing but a win ranking as an option on Sunday, we expect them to play in a very aggressive, attacking manner.

All things considered, we cannot see Defensa slipping up here and think they’ll win comfortably, making backing a home win the way to play as far as the betting is concerned. Union have kept just 1 clean sheet in their last 6 away league matches and said lack of resolve could well see them on the end of a heavy 3-0 defeat in this match.
