With a victory and four draws, Independiente has 7 points and is in 22nd place in the league.
This game against Barracas Central was no different. Barracas Central had an impressive 79% possession, with Independiente playing clearly defensively and exploiting counterattacks and set pieces. The game started well for Independiente, who scored 0-1 in the first minute of the game. Shortly afterward, in a corner kick, Barracas Central would equalize, at 5 minutes of play. The game continued without great opportunities, however, Independiente would suffer a setback in the 28th minute with the expulsion of Barreto. From the moment of the expulsion, the game became more open, with goal opportunities appearing for both teams, however, the score ended up remaining unchanged.
Surprisingly, it is at home that Independiente has been experiencing more difficulties, with 1 draw and 2 defeats for the championship. In this match, Independiente will certainly try to give their supporters a victory, or at least manage to maintain their unbeaten streak.
Colon comes to this game after the fourth consecutive draw, against Newell’s Old Boys (1-1). After a series of 3 consecutive defeats at the beginning of the championship, Colon found its strength in the defensive organization. At this stage of the season, Colon is a very defensive team that looks for counterattacks and set pieces as a means of scoring, just like Independiente. Since this game change, Colon has managed 4 consecutive draws, worth the 4 points it has so far. As usual, in this game Colon had less possession of the ball, being then dangerous in offensive transitions. Colon was the first team to score, in the 16th minute by Ibanez, after a corner was taken. Colon continued to be extremely dangerous on the counterattack and the only reason they didn’t extend the advantage was their lack of effectiveness. However, it would be Newell’s Old Boys who would equalize, through Recalde, in the 69th minute, with a fantastic header. Colon had the opportunity to take the lead again, but ended up wasting a penalty. Colon had many opportunities to win this game and was the team that did the most to deserve it.
Despite being last, Colon has proven to be a very difficult team to beat and will look to increase its unbeaten streak to 5 games.
In the last 5 games between these 2 teams, Independiente has won 3 games, Colon has won 1 game and there’s 1 draw. All of those matches had goals, and had at least 2 goals, with a scoring average of 3 goals per match.
It is expected to be a really close match between these 2 teams, with none of them wanting to lose, so a draw is an expected result.
