Newell´s Old Boys

It’s been seldom in recent times that Newell´s Old Boys have shown defensive steel. In fact, Newell´s Old Boys have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, leaking 11 goals during that time. Let’s see if that trend will end up being sustained into this next match.
Their prior results show that Newell´s Old Boys:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Huracán in their last 2 games.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 league matches.
After being beaten in their last game against Independiente in Superliga action, Huracán and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that match, Huracán managed 51% possession and 16 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. For their opponents, Independiente had 7 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Alan Soñora (37') scored for Independiente.
It has become apparent that Huracán have suffered from a shortage of goals over their last 6 clashes, netting the poor return of only 4. In those matches, El Globo / Los Quemeros have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 3.
Their prior results show that Huracán:
- have not registered a win against Newell´s Old Boys in games played away from home for the previous 6 league matches. Not good.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 4 away league matches.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 5 matches in the league.

Team News: Newell´s Old Boys
The Newell´s Old Boys boss Fernando Gamboa does not have any fitness worries at all ahead of this match owing to a completely injury-free group to choose from.
Team News: Huracán
Due to a mostly healthy group, there’s only the lone fitness issue for the Huracán gaffer Frank Kudelka to contend with. Walter Pérez (Meniscal Injury) misses out for this game.
Here, we’re thinking that Huracán could well find it tough to break down this Newell´s Old Boys lineup who we think will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re therefore anticipating a good battle with a 1-0 winning score for Newell´s Old Boys at the end of the match.
Hoping for a good game.
