Huracán form and stats

Huracán have played three Superliga home games so far, perhaps enough to set expectations for the season. In that case, only 3 points from these matches could be a signal of rough times ahead. The last three games played by Huracán, regardless of arena, have all ended draws. Three draws from their last three home games means a steady supply of points here at Estadio Tomás Adolfo Ducó, but a victory now would be sweet for Huracán.

Huracán manager F. Kudelka and his team return home after a 2-2 draw away versus Newell's Old Boys (placed 12th) in the Superliga. Before that, Huracán drew at home versus Gimnasia La Plata.

Cristian Núñez was able to secure the draw 2-2 in the game against Newell's Old Boys after coming on as a substitute and scoring the final goal. In the starting lineup today?

This is expected to be a close game, with Huracán perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage.
