TIP OF THE DAY: Club Atletico Lanus – Union de Santa Fe: A victory in this match will bring the host to the top of the table!

On Wednesday, there is a very poor selection for betting, so this time we have again analyzed a match of the Argentine League Cup, in which Lanus will host Santa Fe at their stadium. The start of the match between these two teams is scheduled for 01:30h.

Lanus: Victory brings the top spot on the table!

Lanus has won the Argentine championship title twice in its history, with the last occurrence not so long ago in 2016. Among other achievements, we should mention the Copa Sudamericana trophy in 2013, following a triumph over the Brazilian team Ponte Preta. Looking back at last season, it’s fair to say it could hardly have been better, as Lanus finished fourth in the table, earning them a spot in the Copa Libertadores, the most prestigious club competition in South America. Perhaps the best example of the level of competition in Argentine football last season is that Boca Juniors, after a long time, failed to qualify for the Copa Libertadores. Due to their earlier secured spot in this competition, Lanus did not focus much on the last edition of the League Cup, ending up at the bottom of Group B.

Regarding this year’s edition of the League Cup, the former Argentine champion is currently second in Group B, just one point behind the leader Godoy Cruz. This means that the popular Granate, if they win this duel against Santa Fe, will reach the top position in the table, which would certainly be a great achievement. In the last five matches in Argentina’s second most important club competition, Lanus has achieved three victories, one defeat, and one draw at home against Banfield, ending 1:1.

In the last round, Ricardo Zielinski’s team played a pretty good match away at Belgrano, winning 0:1, and before that, they beat Tigre away in a fantastic duel that saw five goals and several turnarounds, with Lanus winning 2:3. Notably, the second-placed team in Group B of the League Cup plays much better away than at home. So far, they have played five home games, achieving two victories, the same number of defeats, and one draw. As for away matches, Lanus has played six games outside their stadium, securing five victories and only one defeat, which was against the top-placed Godoy Cruz with a score of 1:0.

Santa Fe: The primary goal is to qualify for the playoffs!

Santa Fe was founded in 1907, and so far, this team has not won a championship title in Argentina. Last season, Santa Fe finished in a disastrous twentieth place in the table, but the team still managed to achieve its primary goal, which is, of course, staying in the top division. This team played particularly well in the last part of the championship and ended up with almost a double-digit point advantage over the teams that unfortunately got relegated.

Regarding the last edition of the League Cup, Santa Fe ended up in eleventh place in the table, meaning they did not qualify for the playoffs. The primary goal of this team will once again be to reach the playoffs, but it will not be an easy task. Currently, this likable team is in seventh place in Group B, two points behind fourth-placed Newell’s, and it is known that at the end of the regular part of the League Cup, the top four teams from both groups will qualify for the quarterfinals.

So far, the team coached by the legendary Kily Gonzalez has played eleven matches in this year’s edition of the League Cup and achieved four victories, the same number of draws, and three losses. Santa Fe played their best match at the beginning of this month, when they defeated the favored Boca Juniors at home, with the match ending 1:0.

In their last five matches in Argentina’s second most important club competition, the team has achieved three victories, one draw, and one loss. In the last round, the seventh-placed team in Group B played a great match at their stadium, where we saw four goals, drawing against Central Cordoba with a score of 2:2, noting that the guests secured a point in the seventh minute of stoppage time. Before that, the team was defeated away at Defense and Justice, with a score of 2:1.

On away games, Santa Fe has played five matches so far, securing two victories, the same number of draws, and the aforementioned loss against Defense, so it seems that this team is playing quite well away from home. Finally, the last head-to-head duel between Lanus and Santa Fe was played at the beginning of November last year, ending in a draw with no goals scored.
