It's early days in the Superliga and both Defensa y Justicia and Aldosivi are still hoping for a flying start in order to set the tone for the season. Three points can make a big difference at this stage.

Insights:
  • Defensa y Justicia has the fewest clean sheets (1) in Superliga
  • Aldosivi has the fewest scored goals (3) in Superliga

The hosts Justicia saw competitive action as recent as two days ago, playing in the Copa Sudamericana. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at Coquimbo Unido.

Defensa y Justicia form and stats

Defensa y Justicia, who have the fewest clean sheets (1) in Superliga, have collected 3 points from their Superliga home games so far after 1-0-0.

Justicia shared the glory with Coquimbo Unido in their last match, an away game that ended all square 0-0. A Superliga defeat was the result before that one, 0-3 away at Rosario Central.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Justicia have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found eleven games) they have won five times, drawn three and lost three.

The match schedule is unforgiving for Justicia as they have a new game in only two days, a Copa Sudamericana match thankfully also at home. Coquimbo Unido are visiting.

It's still early days, but we have some goal stats for the Defensa y Justicia at home in the league. 2 on target and 1 scored by the opposition; from 1 match.
