In the last match of 16th round in Argentinian Primera Division Defensa y Justicia host Newells Old Boys.
After four lost matches in a row in all competitions, Defensa y Justicia have managed to take all three points against Atlético de Rafaela, the team who beat them in Copa Argentina last month.
Defensa y Justicia promoted in Primera last season and they don’t have quality to make some good result this season.
Maybe they have some “Justicia” in team, but their “Defensa” is terrible. Home side has the second worst defence is Primera Division, conceded 28 goals in 15 matches.
They have the worst home performance (2-1-4).
For this match they will be without their top scorer Fernando Camacho (15/4 d), Luciano Vella (9/0 d), Emir Faccioli (7/0 d), Nery Leyes (10/0 m), Diego Villar (2/0 m), Emiliano Tellechea (12/2 m) and Leandro González (12/0 f), while Carlos Matheu (3/0 d) is doubtful.
Newell’s Old Boys is standing at the 7th position with 24 points. Their recent performance is pretty good. In the last two matches they have managed to beat San Lorenzo and Tigre.
Interesting fact is that the visitors are playing much better away from home where they lost only once this season (3-3-1).
For this match the visitors will miss two players: Diego Mateo (9/0 m) is injured, while Milton Casco (8/0 d) is out due to suspension.
NOB is definitely better side, but they will have to show that on the pitch. I expect that the visitors could take at least one point tonight.
