Racing Club were close to beating Patronato on away turf, but they eventually had to settle for a 1-1 draw in Parana last weekend. As a result, La Academia are now on 21 points, four behind leaders. On a positive note, they have been unbeaten in the last nine league matches, winning five and drawing four of them. At home, Racing collected ten points from the last 12 on offer since losing to River Plate 6-1 in week three.
After two victories and three stalemates, Huracan have finally succumbed to their first defeat since interim boss Nestor Apuzzo took over the reins. It was a 1-0 home slump to Lanus in a hard-fought game last Monday. El Globo continue producing a poor campaign, with only 14 points in 12 rounds. In fact, only six of those points were claimed on the road as Huracan managed a single win, three draws and two losses. Huracan forwards Juan Fernando Garro and Andres Chavez remain sidelined due to their respective injuries.
I’m not buying this temporary improvement in Huracan because they are playing only defensive football and have no clue on what to do in attack once they concede a goal. they won’t have Andres Chaves and Juan Garro in attack what means they are weaker than usual, and Racing at home is a strong team.
