Aldosivi vs Gimnasia
Aldosivi are struggling to leave their crisis behind. Last time out, the team showed improvements, but still ended up losing to Velez Sarsfield 3-2 away. It was their fifth consecutive defeat in the Liga Profesional (since beating Colon 3-0 in round seven), which means El Tiburon remain bottom in the relegation table after accumulating 13 points in 12 rounds. At home, Aldosivi managed six points in as many games, having lost the last two to Lanus and Godoy Cruz.
Gimnasia LP took a breather after six league games without a win (three draws and three defeats) last Monday, when they beat Union Santa Fe 1-0 at home thanks to a goal from German Guiffrey in the second half. It was the first win in three games under coach Nestor Gorosito. The team made it 14 points in the Liga Profesional and continue occupying the 20th place in the relegation table. On a sorry note, El Lobo are on 12 winless matches on away turf, drawing six and losing six (including the last four) since beating San Lorenzo 2-1 in January.
Aldosivi has lost 5 in a row but they’ve shown signs of improvement last week. They won’t lose forever, and this very poor Gimnasia that couldn’t win away in the last 8 months could be a good chance for the hosts to recover.
