Union vs Lanus Tips and Prediction
With two wins, two losses, and one loss in their first five games, Union has had a mixed start to the second season of the Argentine Primera Division.
In addition to what they accomplished earlier in the season, the team is currently ranked 13th in the table and is well-positioned to continue and move up the standings.
Depending on other outcomes, a win on Sunday might move them up two spots, so they must improve on their performance against Nacional last time.
In that Copa Sudamericana match, Union was lost 2-0 after giving up a couple of goals in the first 25 minutes without answering for the rest of the game.
However, Christian Alvarez will be hoping his team finds inspiration from their previous league game where they battled until the very end to defeat Boca Juniors 2-1 thanks to a last-second Franco Troyansky penalty.
In the second round of the competition, the visitors have only succeeded once so far, and generally speaking, they have had difficulties the entire time.
With only four victories in their first 19 games, Lanus are now ranked 19th in the league, which has put pressure on them at this point.
Since there are currently only two points separating them from the bottom-half of the standings, Jorge Almiron’s side is under pressure to play better in the remaining games of the season.
Lanus lost to Independiente del Valle in the Copa Sudamericana despite Tomas Belmonte’s 60th-minute equalizer for his team, just like their opponents on Sunday.
The club will be aiming to turn things around this weekend after being unable to hold on in that game and losing their second straight defeat after surrendering in the 93rd minute.
Both sides come into this game having lost their most recent game, thus they both have a strong motivation to turn things around right away.
Although Lanus are in critical need of points to get out of the relegation zone, Union have demonstrated their abilities throughout the season, and they should have enough to win this game.
