Racing Club form and stats

When playing at home in the Superliga, Racing Club have managed 2 wins, 1 draw and suffered 1 defeat from 4 games.

The Racing Club fans got no joy from their last match, a Superliga game also here at Estadio Presidente Juan Domingo Perón: A 2-4 defeat against Godoy Cruz (placed 8th). 0-0 away at River Plate before that.

As you can tell by the result above, the goals flowed freely in the previous game and the stadium rocked. Could there be another goal fest today?

Independiente form and stats

The visitors are W2-D0-L2 on the road this term. That's in the Superliga. Independiente seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

There might be some fixture complaints from Independiente as they are again playing away from home after losing on the road in their previous match, the Superliga match against Talleres Cordoba (1-3). A draw for Independiente before that, at their own venue hosting Boca Juniors (1-1).

The schedule is very tough for Independiente now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A Copa Argentina game at Tigre is waiting in only three days.

Independiente have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 4 league away games 4 goals have been scored. Independiente have conceded 5 goals in these away matches.

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: five - one - four (Racing wins - draws - Independiente wins). As for goals, five matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), five had two or less.
