Tip Reasoning

Sunday’s Superliga Argentina derby action sees arch rivals San Lorenzo and Huracan doing battle. The hosts will be looking to take full advantage of the instability present in their rival’s ranks.

It’s fair to say 2018 was a year to forget for San Lorenzo fans. The side underwhelmed throughout the year, played in an uninspiring manner and seemed to constantly have key players in the treatment room rather than on the pitch. Now with a fully fit squad and desperate to kick-start Jorge Almiron’s reign, there really would be no better way to start the New Year than with a win over their enemy.

Currently fourth bottom of the Superliga and having taken just 13 points from 14 games, San Lorenzo need to find improvement quickly if they are to avoid an embarrassingly low finish for a club of their stature. Nonetheless, it does feel as though the mid-season break came at the right time for El Ciclon and they should be better prepared for the forthcoming weeks, having now had time to work with their relatively new manager for a sustained period.

Meanwhile, fighting at the right end of the table once again and with Copa Libertadores football to come, all was running along nicely as far as Huracan were concerned; until now ex-boss Gustavo Alfaro decided to depart for Boca in a highly controversial move. Alfaro had undoubtedly been the key piece in El Globo’s transformation into one of the division’s stronger outfits and it remains to be seen how they’ll cope in his absence.

Currently standing 4th with 26 points from 14 games, new manager Antonio Mohamed inherits a group that has been performing well but punching well above its weight on his return to the club. Having had very little time to work with his troops, Mohamed is certainly being thrown in at the deep end with a derby match to kick off his reign and he’ll be desperately hoping to end Huracan’s run of 5 straight defeats at the Estadio Pedro Bidegain.

Ultimately, the upheaval at Huracan has changed the entire dynamic of this derby and it’s now San Lorenzo who look the better placed to go on and win it. There’s certainly not as much between the sides as the table would suggest and it’s been more of a case of the hosts severely under-performing and the visitors somewhat over-performing so far this campaign.

As such, at current prices, we really like the look of backing a San Lorenzo win and said line is exactly where our money is going. For all their struggles, they’ve still lost just 3 of their last 16 home league games, winning 8 times in the process and with the crowd behind them here, we think they’ll edge the contest by a 1-0 margin of victory.
