Venue: Estadio Brigadier General Estanislao López (40000 seats)

Another engaging game in the Superliga. Colón is in the 15th spot after participating in four games. They welcome Huracán who are placed 16th after four matches.

Insights:
  • Colón have played more matches over 2,5 goals home than away.

Only a few days to rest for the hosting team, as they played a Copa Argentina game only three days back. That game was an away game at Patronato, so at least Colón are thankful to return home in this one. Game on!

Colón form and stats

OK but not perfect. That could be the conclusion for Colón's two home games in the Superliga so far this season, having collected 4 points here at Estadio Brigadier General Estanislao López.

The Colón coach Falcioni and his crew return home after a 1-1 draw away versus Patronato in the Copa Argentina. The first defeat after collecting points through three league matches.

Heartbreak before that as Colón lost 0-1 at Lanus's place.

This is expected to be a close game, with Colón perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Colón as a small favourite), we find 16 games. Colón has won 5 of these, drawn 5 and lost 6.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Colón as they are travelling to their away game against Talleres Cordoba in the Copa Libertadores. That match is four days after this one.

Early season league goal statistics from Colón's 2 home games: 3 goals, 2 conceded.

Huracán form and stats

Still no away game victory in the Superliga for Huracán with 1 draw and 1 loss from their first 2 attempts.

Huracán's last game ended in a draw, the home match versus Atletico Tucuman that finished 0-0. Midfield player Hezze was the top player of the team with a match rating of 7.7/10. Hezze hit two key passes and dribled past the opponent 1 of 1 times.

Ahead of that match was the away draw versus Defensa y Justicia that ended 1-1.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found 15 similar matches played by Huracán in our archives, and the results are: 6 wins for Huracán, 4 draws and 5 defeats.
