Independiente visit Estadio José María Minella on Sunday for the Superliga tie with home team Aldosivi.
All Aldosivi v Independiente match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - plus the latest betting odds.
Aldosivi won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 3-0 Superliga defeat in their last game at the hands of Sarmiento.
In that game, Aldosivi managed 55% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Sarmiento got 23 shots at goal with 12 on target. Luciano Gondou (37'), Braian Salvareschi (63') and Yair Arismendi (82') scored for Sarmiento.
Three or more goals per match have been seen in 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Aldosivi have taken part. Their opponents scored 17 times in this period while Aldosivi bagged a total of 5. Regardless, we must now wait to see whether that pattern might be replicated in this next game.
Pre-game facts show that Aldosivi:
- haven't beaten Independiente when playing them at home in the last 2 league games.
- have not beaten Independiente in their previous 3 league matches.
- are without a home win in the past 4 league games. Things will have to change soon.

Team News: Aldosivi
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the sole fitness concern for the Aldosivi gaffer Fernando Gago to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy set of players. Marcos Miers (Ruptured ligaments) is out of contention.
Team News: Independiente
Independiente manager Julio Falcioni has to choose a team with limited availability. Carlos Benavidez (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Lucas Rodríguez (Inguinal Hernia) won’t be making appearances.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Aldosivi will need things to go their way to put one past this Independiente side who we reckon will score one, at least.
We’re therefore tipping a highly competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for Independiente when the referee blows for full-time.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
