Tip Reasoning

Saturday’s Argentine Superliga clash sees San Lorenzo playing host to Belgrano. It’s expected to be a close game as both sides arrive desperate for the points, with just two games left to play.

For San Lorenzo, picking up the three points in this fixture is essential as they look to hang onto a Libertadores spot, none more so than because a trip to River awaits in the final game of the season. Claudio Biaggio’s troops had been challenging for the title earlier on in the campaign, but just 5 wins from 13 Superliga outings in 2018 have seen El Ciclon lose ground, now sitting in 3rd with just a 3 point advantage over 6th placed Talleres.

The hosts have really been struggling in recent weeks, amidst injury problems, and are not playing well. Key creative man Fernando Belluschi has been absent for a number of games now and the team are struggling to look much of force going forward with him missing. Last week’s 0-0 draw away at Patronato was yet another show of the team’s impotency and though the side have picked up some decent results on home soil in recent weeks, a 5-0 defeat to Godoy Cruz aside, performances have been far from convincing, leaving fans concerned coming into the clash. None more so than because they face a Belgrano team in excellent shape, having won the last 3 games.

El Pirata had suffered a highly irregular campaign last season, ending 28th but have already hit the 40 point target set by club management at the start of the campaign and now have a Copa Sudamericana spot in their sights.

Pablo Lavellen’s troops may not play the most attractive football in the league but are very difficult to beat, evidenced by the fact they’ve fallen to defeat in just 5 of their 25 Superliga outings this season. Currently standing 10th and with a home game against already relegated Temperley to come, the Cordobés side arrive knowing if they can continue their winning streak in this game, then they’ll be in pole position to remain in the continental spots.

Ultimately, we’re expecting a tight, close game. Neither side is renowned for playing attacking football and with the stakes so high, little change can be expected in this one.

Nonetheless, at current prices and given the injuries present in home ranks, and the way they’ve been performing in recent weeks, backing Belgrano on the double chance line looks the way to play. Solid defensively, Belgrano have kept three clean sheets in a row and 13 overall this season, and that could well continue in a 0-0 draw, a scoreline which has been seen in 4 of the last 8 fixtures between the two.
