Banfield Prediction

Banfield return from the winter break with a welcome home match and will be looking to record back-to-back wins in the Superliga as they signed off in December with a 1-0 win away at Union Santa Fe which left the hosts in 11th place in the Argentinian top flight.

The hosts have lost just once in their least five league matches overall which was a disappointing 1-0 loss at home to second from bottom club Argentinos Juniors, but with a gap of two points separating them from the teams situated in the top nine of the Superliga, Banfield could jump into the CONMEBOL Sudamericana pack with a win tonight.

Banfield possess an okay looking home record that stands at 3-2-2 5/4 although they’d lost two of their last three at home before the winter break. Defeats to Estudiantes and Argentino Juniors would usually spark some worry over this fixture but Banfield have won the last three encounters at home to San Martin.


Key-Facts – Banfield v San Martin

  • Banfield have lost just once in their last 5 matches in the Superliga
  • Banfield have won the last 3 meetings between themselves and San Martin at home
  • San Martin have lost 5 of their last 7 Superliga matches


San Martin Prediction

San Martin sit in a lowly 23rd place on the Superliga ladder as they signed out in December with a 1-0 defeat away at Racing Club which became their fifth defeat in seven matches in the Argentinian top flight.

Indeed, San Martin have collected just three wins from their last 12 league matches overall, so the prospect of the visitors walking away with all three points, let alone a single one, seems highly unlikely even with Banfield’s two recent defeats at home.

The story gets even worse for San Martin away from home as the visitors have lost five of their last six on their travels with defeats suffered at River Plate, San Lorenzo, San Martin Tucuman, Rosario Central and Racing Club within an overall away record of 1-2-5 6/12.

In addition, San Martin have failed to score in 4 of their 8 away matches to date as the goals have been at a premium for the visitors on their travels so far this season.

Betting Tips Verdict

Banfield can bounce back here with a win but I advise using the handicap on the hosts.
