Independiente Rivadavia vs Banfield Predictions


A tight Copa Argentina contest seems likely on Thursday.

I'm putting my money on under 2.5 goals scored at the Estadio Juan Bautista Gargantini.

  • Independiente have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 home matches
  • Independiente have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches
  • Banfield have seen under 2.5 goals in 2 of their last 3 matches
  • Banfield have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 3 away matches (Copa Argentina)

Head to Head


Independiente Rivadavia and Banfield have faced each other on five previous occasions. Banfield lead the H2H with four wins to one after a 2-1 win at this venue in April. That match was the first contest between these sides since 2014. 

Independiente Rivadavia Form


Independiente Rivadavia come into Thursday's contest unbeaten in three matches after a 1-0 road victory at Sarmiento on Sunday. Gaston Romero's 86th-minute winner secured back-to-back away victories in the LPA for the first time in their history. 

Unbeaten in their last four away fixtures, Rivadavia have been less consistent on home soil. Martín Cicotello's men lost four of their five previous LPA matches at the Estadio Juan Bautista Gargantini.

The hosts have struggled to score at this venue, with only four netted in their last seven in Cordoba.

Head coach Cicotello could keep faith with the same XI that edged past Sarmiento on Sunday.

Bruno Bianchi and Rufino Lucero are expected to remain absent for the home side. 

Banfield Form


Banfield make the trip to Cordoba without a win in their last three matches after a painful 3-0 defeat at Gimnasia La Plata. Three goals leaked in the last 16 minutes of the contest ensured more away day blues for El Taladro. 

Julio Falcioni's inconsistent side won three and lost three of their last seven matches.

El Taladro secured their place in this phase of the Copa Argentina with a comprehensive 6-0 win against Ciudad Bolivar last month. 

Banfield Team News


Head coach Falcioni is unable to call on several injured players ahead of Thursday's Copa Argentina contest. 

Juan Bisanz, Alejandro Cabrera, Alexis Maldonado, Gerónimo Rivera, Lucas Palavecino, Ezequiel Bonifacio and Franco Quinteros are all expected to remain unavailable.

Verdict

Both sides have struggled in recent respective home and away fixtures.

With that in mind, I expect a low-scoring contest with less than three goals netted.
