Tip Reasoning

Sunday’s Superliga Argentina action features a clash between Godoy Cruz and Independiente. The hosts will be looking to keep up their strong recent form by claiming another set of 3 points.

After a poor run of 4 defeats from 5 matches, Godoy Cruz are starting to hit exactly the kind of form that saw them finish as runners-up in last season’s Superliga and El Tomba arrive in excellent condition for Sunday’s match. 4 wins from the last 5 games has confidence sky high in home ranks and has lifted the side up into 8th place.

Having scored an average of 2 goals a game across said matches, the hosts are really starting to click in attack and a 3-1 win at Tigre last time out saw last season’s Superliga top scorer Santiago Garcia notch a brace. Home fans will be hoping Garcia can repeat said feat here against Independiente and be it him or somebody else, those taking to the pitch can be extremely assured of picking up a good result, having won a staggering 17 times from their last 19 home league matches.

Meanwhile, if Independiente are going to meet title aspirations, then they’re going to have to become a more consistent, ruthless outfit. Ariel Holan’s troops are capable of playing some fantastic football on their day but are guilty of failing to turn far too often, as has been the case in recent weeks during 1-0 defeats to Lanus and Boca respectively.

Already 11 points behind leaders and arch enemy Racing, El Rojo can ill afford to drop further points but they’ll be hard pressed to take something from Sunday’s game, given their less than sparkling recent away form. Indeed, the visitors have lost 3 of their last 5 trips and have won just 2 of their last 9; statistics which hardly provide a positive outlook ahead of travelling to Mendoza.

Ultimately, regular viewers of Argentine football will know how powerful Godoy Cruz have been at the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas throughout 2018 and you’d back them against just about anyone, and that certainly includes the side they face here, with Independiente far from firing on all cylinders.

As such, the bookmakers pricing Independiente as favourites makes very little sense and we’re looking to take full advantage of the excellent value on offer by backing the hosts on the Draw No Bet line with full confidence. At worst, Godoy Cruz shouldn’t lose the match but we envisage them making it three 1-0 defeats on the bounce for Independiente.
