Huracan vs Estudiantes L.P. Prediction & Betting tips
Huracan will compete against Estudiantes in the night from Monday to Tuesday. Both teams are totally out of shape, although the home club has to win to stay in the race for continental football. The visitors only play for the sporting honor.
The Huracan season threatens to go out like a night candle. When trainer Antonio Mohamed went to work with the Red and White in December last year, the team was in fourth place and therefore on track for the Copa Libertadores qualification. Since then, however, it went downhill fast with El Globo, which since then only managed to win one of its eleven league duels. Huracan has since dropped to tenth place, which means that even qualifying for the Copa Sudamericana is hanging by a thread.
The remaining three rounds are therefore all finals, although Huracan is also active in the current edition of the Copa Libertadores. Last Friday the Argentines came to visit the Ecuadorian Emelec no further than a scoreless draw. That has become a known problem, because in the last six official duels the red and white managed to produce only two goals in total. Mohamed can call on attacker Lucas Barrios again next Tuesday, who you may remember from his periods at Borussia Dortmund and Spartak Moscow, among others. The experienced Paraguayan, good for two goals in seven league matches, was suspended last week.
For Estudiantes, the season is basically over. With only 24 points from 22 rounds of play, the red-and-white disappointment of the fans did not get any further than eighteenth place and the places that entitle you to continental football are far from out of sight. Last week, however, it was possible to laugh again, as the city derby against arch rival Gimnasia La Plata was won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Lucas Albertengo. With three red cards (two for Gimnasia and one for Estudiantes) it was an old-fashioned hot Argentinian soccer afternoon and so this victory was celebrated considerably afterwards.
However, trainer Gabriel Milito and chairman Juan Sebastian Veron are not satisfied and know that reinforcements are needed. Allegedly they want to seduce Javier Marscherano to come to La Plata. However, the duo would also be wise to bring in some extra scoring power. With only nineteen goals, El Pincha is one of the least scoring teams in the Superliga, and the eight league hits on foreign soil are already saddening. It is therefore not surprising that Estudiantes only managed to win an away game this season.
