Argentine Primera Division: Lanus vs Sarmiento odds for September 18, 2023

Lanus vs Sarmiento

Lanus remain experiencing a rough start in the Copa Liga Profesional. Last Thursday, the team lost 2-1 away at Platense under interim boss Sebastian Salomon, which means they collected a single point in four matches in group B. In fact, Lanus claimed a single victory across their last nine matches in league action, drawing three and losing five, which places them four points behind the last Copa Libertadores’ spot in the aggregate table. At home, Lanus won one, drew two and lost two of their last five. Right back Juan Caceres is suspended for Monday after seeing a red card at Platense.

Sarmiento succumbed to their first defeat in the Copa Liga Profesional last Wednesday, when they ended up losing to CA Central Cordoba 1-0 at home in an entertaining game. That defeat put an end to their four-match unbeaten streak of two victories and two draws in league action. However, El Verde remain on seven points in the Copa Liga Profesional, which keeps them above the relegation spot in the aggregate table. Sarmiento are winless in their last six away games, having taken two points from 18 on offer in that spell.

Lanus will have club idol striker Lautaro Acosta back, so while I still don’t trust them I like this low totals line considering they’ve conceded in every game so far this season.

BET: OVER 2 @ 1.81
