Venue: Estadio Charrúa

A home win is expected from this fixture if the league table is anything to judge by. The Racing fans are optimistic that the difference between 4th and Atenas's 9th place in the table will show on the pitch.

These are busy days for the home team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Segunda Division. There’s little time for restitution or working hard at the training pitch these days, with both teams having played their last game less than four days ago. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at Villa Española.

Racing form and stats

3-5-2 (win-draw-lost) are the Segunda Division numbers at home for Racing so far this season. With a nice streak brewing from their home games, Racing are also looking for their fifth consecutive victory regardless of location. Two home wins in a row for Racing bring valid hopes of a third.

Nothing to worry about in defence for Racing, as their goalkeeper has completely shut out the opponents for 181 minutes in the Segunda Division.

It's back home for Racing, who return with a good feeling about themselves after beating Villa Española away with the result 2-0. Previous to that game, a home match hosting Rocha in a game that was won 1-0.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Racing as they are travelling to their away game against Central Espanol in the Segunda Division. That match is three days after this one.

The Racing fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 13 in 10 matches. On the other hand, Racing have conceded 11 goals. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 0 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.

Atenas form and stats

There's been little loot from Atenas's travels as they have only collected 6 points from 10 away games in the Segunda Division. Atenas, who have the the worst goal difference (-9) away in Segunda Division, only have 0 wins to counter their 4 defeats and 6 draws. The loyal fans travelling with their beloved Atenas have enjoyed the stadium food more than the matches as the visitors have gone ten consecutive matches without winning on the road. The last time three points were secured away was the Albion game.

Atenas might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Juventud proved too strong as Atenas slumped to a 2-3 defeat in front of their own fans at Estadio Atenas. Ahead of that match was the away draw versus Villa Teresa that ended 1-1.

A new game in only three days for Atenas, the Segunda Division home match versus Cerrito. Busy days.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Atenas as they have only managed to score 6 times from 10 away games in the league. Atenas struggle to build an impenetrable defensive wall in away matches with a total of 15 goals conceded from these games.

Head 2 Head

Atenas - Racing 2-0 was the story when these teams last met, earlier this season. Numbers for the last seven meetings between these two teams are: three wins for Racing, two draws and two wins for Atenas. Over 2,5 goals: two times; under 2,5 goals: five games.
