Newell´s Old Boys head into this fixture after a 2-2 Copa de la Liga Profesional draw vs Atlético Tucumán.
It has been all too rare in recent times that Newell´s Old Boys have shown defensive steel. The reality is that La Lepra have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 11 goals in the process.
In the game prior to this, Huracán drew 1-1 in the Copa de la Liga Profesional tie with Gimna ' Plata.
For 6 of the previous 6 clashes involving Huracán, a notably low volume of goals have gone in between them and their opponents. The overall average number of goals per game within that period comes to a meagre 1.5, with the number of goals averaged by El Globo / Los Quemeros equalling 0.83. We will have to see whether or not that trend can be sustained in this game.
We’re thinking that Huracán and Newell´s Old Boys could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting. It could well end in a draw. That’s why we have predicted a very even match with a score draw at the conclusion of the game.
