Struggling Colon will be hoping to pull off an upset when they welcome high-flying Racing Club in the upcoming league round. It's 20th vs 5th and the home crowd will have moderate expectations.

We should expect both teams to be fresh and ready for this match, as there is some time since both teams last played. Let's have a look at how the teams are doing!

Colón form and stats

5-1-4 (win-draw-lost) are the Superliga numbers at home for Colón so far this season. We have seen two home losses in a row now for Colón, who are hoping that the phrase “third time lucky” applies to them.

Stress levels are on the rise for Colón's attacking players as they have now played 300 minutes without scoring in a league game. W. Morelo was their last goal scorer.

Colón manager D. Osella and his team return home after a 0-0 draw away versus Defensa y Justicia (placed 13th) in the Superliga. Preceding that match was the home game against Banfield that was lost 0-1.

Colón are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 11 goals in 10 games. 12 goals have been conceded.

Racing Club form and stats
