Independiente vs Atletico Tucuman Match Analysis and Prediction

Independiente will be looking to put an end to a five-game winless run in the Argentine Primera Division when they host Atletico Tucuman on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the visitors aim to not only maintain their unbeatennleague record, but to also secure a fifth consecutive victory.

Independiente head into the contest in a lowly 25th position after failing to win any of their last five matches.

The last team that they were able to defeat was in fact their weekend opponents, with Independiente claiming a 1-0 Copa Argentina victory over Atletico Tucuman on June 24.

They failed to build upon their cup win, suffering defeats in the following three matches before playing out a goalless draw against Rosario Central.

Independiente’s winless run was extended in midweek after goals from Manuel Duarte and Adonis Frias enabled Defensa y Justicia to claim a 2-0 victory over them.

That result was also their fifth across the opening five league matches, but they will now turn their attention to this contest where they will be looking to claim their third win of the this season.

While Sunday’s hosts have struggled since the previous meeting between the sides in June, the cup defeat was a minor setback for Atletico Tucuman who are unbeaten in the league this term.

A 1-1 stalemate against Godoy Cruz was followed by four consecutive victories, including a 1-0 win over Sarmiento in midweek.

However, the home encounter with Sarmiento looked set to end in a goalless draw, but Ignacio Maestro Puch scored an 86th-minute winner for his side and became Atletico Tucuman’s hero.

Consequentially, second-placed Atletico Tucuman are level on points with league leaders Argentinos Juniors.

Despite losing to Independiente in June, Atletico Tucuman will be confident about picking up a positive result after avoiding defeat in their four away league matches this season.
