Union de Santa Fe
The club was founded over a hundred years ago. Still, some of its achievements can be literally counted on the fingers, and those are the victories at the level of the Primera B. It was only in 2019 when “the Unionistas” made their debut in the international tournaments – that was the Copa Sudamericana (to be honest, there were no any special achievements there). Speaking about the previous season, the team did not make any surprise, taking a place at the bottom of the table of both the Diego Maradona Trophy and the championship. Moreover, the Primera resulted only in the 22nd place out of 28 participants. Three more participants achieved the same number of points (32 points), however, this fact is more than formal. To tell the truth, one can only dream of such a result nowadays: the team is completely stuck at the very bottom of the standings. Does it make sense to spend energy on the cup in such conditions? Maybe it is better to focus on the struggle for a rise in the championship?
The team made its way to the top division of Argentina several times at the beginning of the century. Still, both in 2000 and in 2004, everything ended in a relegation to the Primera B. Nowadays, there were no even hopes that it would be possible to make a new attempt – the team occupied extremely mediocre places. Speaking about the current season, the team does not think about the chances of promotion – it is only eager not to lose the place of the existing level: there are more defeats than victories, the goal difference is negative. San Martin has recently defeated the club in a completely devastatingly manner in San Juan – 0-3. However, there will be a neutral arena this time, and, thus, a chance to please the fans with a victory over a representative of the elite division.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The last time the clubs had got a head-to-head match was in 2009, when both played in the Primera B. Then Union demonstrated better performance in Santa Fe, however, its victory was minimal, 1-0.
Bookmakers give preference to the nominal hosts of the arena, but the guests are in a good shape now. We recommend betting on “both teams to score: yes” (odd: 1.87).
