On May 9, Estadio Pedro Bidegain (Buenos Aires) will host the match of the 15th round of the Liga Profesional, in which San Lorenzo will compete with Defensa y Justicia. The battle will start at 00:00 CET.
The club does not belong to the main grandees of the country. Still, even the Copa Libertadores was won by “the Blue and Red” in 2014, moreover, the team became the national champion 12 times. To be honest, new trophies could not be taken after the Argentine Super Cup in 2015. The improvement starts nowadays. If the team took only the 6th place in the previous season (although it allowed to play in the Copa Sudamericana, where, however, Diego Dabova’s wards are not “touching the stars” and the chances of reaching the play-offs are minimal), nowadays, it is fighting for the 2nd place in the championship – it was possible to take 8 wins and 28 points during 14 previous matches. Just now, the team will play with the direct competitor – it will be more than important to squeeze the maximum in the following battle.
Defensa y Justicia
The club was created back in the mid-30s of the previous century. Still, it remained a purely amateur team for quite a long time. Speaking about the Primera, it made its debut less than a dozen seasons ago. Nevertheless, it has already managed to acquire international titles – the Copa Sudamericana 2020 and the Copa Argentina 2021. Taking into account the higher mentioned results, the 12th place of the previous Primera seems to be a serious step back. Nowadays, Julio Vaccari, who has replaced Beccacece in the previous autumn, is showing decent results. His players are holding in the group of the leaders, having won 8 out of 14 matches as their next opponent, but having 1 draw less. By the way, all 4 previous struggles brought only the victories of Defensa y Justicia, with the proviso that they also made misfires in the Copa Sudamericana.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Defensa y Justicia has got 4 wins and a single defeat in 6 previous matches since 2019. At the same time, the September battle brought a goalless draw.
Bookmakers believe that San Lorenzo has a good chance of winning at the home arena. Nevertheless, this is a duel of equal opponents, which rarely concede goals and are not particularly spectacular in the attacks. Thus, it is reasonable to bet on “total: under 2.0” (odd: 1.727).
