Newell’s Old Boys vs Argentinos Juniors Tips and Prediction
Tuesday’s victory over a tenacious Talleres team maintained Newell’s Old Boys’ strong start to the new Primera Division season.
Ramiro Sordo’s first-minute goal was enough to separate the teams in a tight match at the Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes, handing the hosts their second consecutive loss.
Prior to that, Javier Sanguinetti’s team opened the campaign with a 2-1 victory against Banfield on June 4, and six days later returned home to play San Lorenzo to a scoreless draw.
Since losing 2-1 to Velez Sarfield in November2.49 of last year, Newell’s Old Boys have gone undefeated in each of their past six league home games going into Monday’s match.
La Lepra and Pechofrios will want to keep the momentum going, but their next opponent is a team they have lost to in each of their last three meetings since 2018.
Similar to the hosts, Argentinos Juniors won their most recent match, edging a tenacious Independiente team 2-1 at home.
Leandro Benegas’ equalizer in the 44th minute was followed by goals from Thiago Nuss and Fausto Vera, giving El Bicho the victory at Estadio Diego Armando Maradona.
With the exception of a 1-0 setback at Sarmiento on June 11, Gabriel Milito’s team has now won two of their first three games, scoring four goals and conceding three.
Since their 1-0 victory over Rosario Central in November, Argentinos Juniors have lost six straight Primera Division away games and have only collected one point out of a possible 18.
Both Newell’s Old Boys and Argentinos Juniors have had strong starts to their campaigns and aim to continue their success. The visitors enter the contest unbeaten in seven straight games, and we forecast they will perform just enough to split the points with the evenly matched home team.
