Aldosivi vs San Lorenzo
Competition: Argentina Superliga
Date: 2 December 2018
Kick-off: 21:10 CET
Aldosivi had earned just one point from their last four matches before hosting Newell’s Old Boys last weekend, having scored just one goal in those four matches (in that 1-4 home defeat to Banfield, with their goal that day coming late, while already losing 0-4). Last weekend, it was an own-goal scored by a Newell’s player in the 32nd minute that made all the difference between the two teams. Finally a win for the Mar del Plata side, even without impressing anyone with their football. They are 10th in the Superliga table, on 19 points from 13 matches. At home, they’ve won four and lost two games.
While the whole football world was waiting last weekend to see what would happen with the Copa Libertadores final, San Lorenzo and Huracán had their own… unwanted “adventure”. The derby between them was scheduled to be held on Sunday, got postponed when the final as well got postponed for Sunday, you already know River Plate and Boca Juniors didn’t play at all last weekend, but the derby between San Lorenzo and Huracán had already gotten postponed, and then, Buenos Aires was about to host the G20 summit, so… yet another mess in Argentina. San Lorenzo’s last game was that 0-2 home defeat to Atlético Tucumán, two weeks ago. Center-forward Nicolás Blandi remains unavailable, still troubled by his latest injury. According to reports, Jorge Almirón will try a new system, with five at the back.

Aldosivi vs San Lorenzo: Prediction
The hosts are considered slight favorites to win. San Lorenzo? I honestly don’t know what to expect from them at this point. Jorge Almirón had two weeks to work with his team, since their last game in the Superliga. Deep down, I expect them to look improved, and to leave Mar del Plata with at least one point.
Aldosivi vs San Lorenzo: Betting Tips
San Lorenzo’s win in “draw no bet” is at 1.90, with their double chance low, at 1.44. Given how poor Aldosivi have been lately, I would risk with San Lorenzo’s clean sheet, at 2.62.
