Newell’s vs Godoy Cruz
Newell’s Old Boys managed a valuable point following a 1-1 away draw at Racing Club thanks to Sebastian Palacios’ strike in the second half. The side made it eight league matches without defeat (winning three and drawing five) to accumulate 35 points, only one behind the last Copa Libertadores spot. At home, La Lepra grabbed seven points from the last nine on offer in the Superliga.
Godoy Cruz stopped a two-match losing run in league action last Wednesday when they beat Velez Sarsfield 1-0 away thanks to a goal from Juan Brunetta. However, El Tomba remains occupying the bottom spot of the Superliga table on 15 points. Furthermore, only six of those were claimed on the road as a product of two wins and nine defeats.
Newell’s shouldn’t have much trouble to beat this very poor Godoy Cruz and grab important points for their dream of playing an international cup next season.
