Defensa y Justicia vs Independiente prediction: A boring draw ahead?

Key stats

  • Nine of the previous 10 H2H duels between these two teams have gone under 2.5 total goals.
  • Defensa y Justicia have gone under 2.5 total goals in their last four matches in a row.
  • Independiente have gone under 2.5 total goals in three of their previous four games across the board.
  • We saw both teams score in just one of the last 10 H2H meetings between Defensa y Justicia and Independiente.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Bookies without a clear favourite

  • HOME: 7/4 (2.75) – 36.40%
  • DRAW: 15/8 (2.88) – 34.80%
  • AWAY: 29/20 (2.45) – 40.80%

We can see from these Defensa y Justicia vs Independiente odds that the bookies expect a close duel, while the guests are the expected winners by a slim margin.

That makes sense given Defensa y Justicia's form at the moment and the fact that they're still without a win in Primera Division after the first three rounds. That being said, Independiente are in the same boat, but they did win one point more so far.

Anyhow, if you liked our predictions for this game, make sure to also look at our top betting tips for today.

Defensa y Justicia preview: Hoping to end their winless streak

It's been a while since Defensa y Justicia last won a match. In fact, they've been without a win since the middle of April and for the last eight games in a row in all competitions. That being said, Defensa y Justicia made the playoffs in Copa de la Liga Profesional, so their current run of poor results is a bit surprising and certainly disappointing for their fans.

Meanwhile, Ulises Gimenez, Nicolas Fernandez, and Santi Ramos Mingo are all out with injuries at the moment.

Predicted Lineup: Fiermarlin – Tripichio, Marco, Aguilera, Caceres – Sosa, Gutierrez – Molinas, Palavecino, Echevarria – Blandi

Independiente preview: Looking for their first win in the league

Just like their upcoming opponent, Independiente have also started the new Primera Division season without winning any of their first three games, although they also only lost once. Still, that's a pretty slow start for a team that's playing in Copa Sudamericana and have narrowly missed the playoffs in Copa de la Liga Profesional.

When it comes to team news, Ivan Marcone and Santiago Toloza are injured, while Mauricio Isla is suspended ahead of this game.

Predicted Lineup: Rey – Isla, Fedorco, Laso, Perez – Martinez, Mancuello – Lopez, Millan, Tarzia – Avalos

Player to watch: Nicolas Fernandez

While we don't expect to see goals in this match, if anyone can break this deadlock it is Nicolas Fernandez, Defensa y Justicia's top scorer in all competitions this season with seven goals.

Fernandez to score from a penalty?

Two of the seven goals that Fernandes has scored so far in Copa de la Liga Profesional, Copa Sudamericana, and Primera Division have come from a penalty spot.
