View all Lanús v Platense tips, stats and our pre-match poll below (including the best match odds).
Lanús will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 3-2 Superliga defeat last time out to Patronato.
In that match, Lanús had 48% possession and 5 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. For Lanús, the goalscorers were José Sand (15') and Ignacio Malcorra (31'). Patronato had 12 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Junior Arias (37'), Héctor Canteros (76') and Sebastián Sosa (78') scored for Patronato.
It’s not been often in recent times where Lanús haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Lanús have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 9 goals along the way. That pattern might not follow through here, though.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of River Plate in Superliga competition, Platense and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that game, Platense managed 43% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 2 on target. For their opponents, River Plate got 18 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Julián Álvarez (10') scored for River Plate.
The numbers tell their own story, and Platense have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 8 goals overall. In defence, Platense seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.
Coming into this clash, Platense are without a win away from home in their last 2 league games.
Team News: Lanús
The Lanús manager Luis Zubeldía doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all before this game with a fully injury-free group available to select from.
Team News: Platense
With a completely healthy group to choose from, the Platense boss Claudio Spontón has zero fitness worries to speak of before this game.
In this game, Platense will manage to find the back of the net against this Lanús outfit, but that is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them.
We think that it’s going to be a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning score for Lanús at the end of the match. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
