Fresh on the back of a 1-1 draw with Gremio in the Copa Libertadores, Estudiantes make the trip to Sarmiento this week in search of three Liga Profesional points.

The hosts are not in good form right now and lack a natural goalscorer which could prove disastrous against a team of the quality of Estudiantes.

Estudiantes sit three points and 12 places ahead of Sarmiento before kick-off and we're expecting that gap to increase come the final whistle on Thursday.

Sarmiento preview: Won one of last six

Sarmiento put in a decent performance to secure a 1-0 win at San Lorenzo last time out as Manuel García scored the only goal of the game.

However, Thursday's hosts have lost each of their last three home games and seem to perform much better on the road where there is less pressure from their fans.

Predicted lineup: Acosta (GK), Insaurralde, López, Paredes, Méndez, Gudiño, Arismendi, Burgoa, Gho, García & Rosales

Estudiantes preview: Only lost two of last six

Estudiantes were in action in the Copa Libertadores against Gremio at the weekend, coming away with a 1-1 draw against the Brazilians thanks to a late equaliser from Mauro Mendez.

The visitors sit just three points off the top spot in Argentina after four games but a defeat at Sarmiento would see Thursday's hosts go level on seven points, so Estudiantes need to give their full concentration to this game.

Player to watch – Javier Correa

Javier Correa is enjoying life back in his homeland following a spell in Mexico with Santos Laguna.

The 31-year-old scored 13 goals across two seasons with the Mexican club but made his return to Argentina with Estudiantes in 2024.

With five goals and three assists so far this season, Correa is the joint-top goalscorer and assist provider for Estudiantes right now, making him a key player in the starting eleven.

Correa has been a key player for Estudiantes in 2024

We're backing Correa to put in another top-quality performance on Thursday which will help guide Estudiantes to all three points in what is expected to be a close and competitive 90 minutes.

Don't be surprised to see Correa's name either on the scoreboard or setting up a goal against Sarmiento as he is a key player for the visitors going forward.
