TIP OF THE DAY: Belgrano – Lanus: The host is chasing only their second victory, Lanus shines away!

Due to a lack of better betting options, for the second day in a row, we have analyzed a match from the Argentine League Cup for you, and this time the choice fell on the encounter between Belgrano and Lanus. The start of the match between these two teams is scheduled for 01:15h.

Belgrano: Just one victory in ten played matches!

Belgrano was founded in 1905, and the greatest success in its history was achieved two years ago when it won the championship title in the second-highest division of Argentine football. Last season was more than good since Belgrano primarily managed to stay in the top league, and in the end, the popular Pirates finished 13th in the table. Regarding the last edition of the League Cup, this team eventually reached the quarterfinals where they were stopped by River Plate, who won that match 2:1, with a goal by Colidio in the fourth minute of injury time.

This time, the primary goal will be to qualify for the playoffs, with the acknowledgment that it will not be an easy task. At this moment, the popular Pirates are in the penultimate place in Group B with only eight points, which is really too little. In the current course of Argentina’s second most important competition, Belgrano has played ten matches and achieved only one victory, five draws, and as many as four losses. In the last five matches, last season’s League Cup quarterfinalist has achieved only one victory, with three draws and a loss in an away game against Boca Juniors in a spectacular encounter where we saw five goals, ending 3:2 at La Bombonera.

In the last round, the second-to-last team in Group B drew in an away game against Central Cordoba, with the match ending 2:2, noting that Belgrano went into the break with a one-goal lead, and it seems that this team could have had a bigger advantage at the end of the first half, as one goal was disallowed after VAR intervention. Regarding home performances, the Pirates have played five matches at their stadium so far, achieving one victory, three draws, and one loss. Finally, the only victory in the current championship course for this charming team was achieved at their stadium against Sarmiento, with a score of 4:1.

Lanus: Phenomenal performances away!

The football club Lanus was founded 109 years ago, and so far, this team has won the Argentine championship title twice, with the last time being in 2016. Among other achievements, we must highlight the Copa Sudamericana trophy in 2013, after triumphing over the Brazilian team Ponte Preta. Last season was very good for this team, as Lanus finished fourth in the table, which earned them a place in the Copa Libertadores, which was certainly the primary goal. The magnitude of this success is perhaps best evidenced by the fact that a giant like Boca Juniors failed to qualify for the group stage of the highest quality club competition in South America.

Regarding the last edition of the League Cup, in the end, Ricardo Zielinski’s charges finished last in Group B. However, it should be realistically acknowledged that for Lanus, this competition was not a priority, especially since they had already secured a place in the Copa Libertadores. In this year’s edition of the League Cup, the former Argentine champion is currently in second place in Group B, four points behind the leader Godoy Cruz, and as things stand, this team is one of the main favorites for a place in the final stages. In the last five matches, Ricardo Zielinski’s pupils have achieved three victories, one draw, and one loss, somewhat unexpectedly at their stadium against Central Cordoba, ending 0:1.

In the last round, Lanus achieved a new victory and consolidated their second place in the table, with Tigre being the victim this time. It was a truly fantastic match where we saw five goals, and in the end, it was 2:3 for the visitors, who went into the break a goal down but played in the second half as they have for most of this year’s edition of the League Cup, and fully deserved their sixth victory in the championship. Finally, the last head-to-head encounter between Belgrano and Lanus was played at the end of October last year, where Lanus won without much trouble, 2:0.
