Independiente – Banfield Argentina Primera Pick: 2 +0,75 ah stake 2/10 Odds: 1.77 bet365 Sunday, 20:00 GMT

Argentina Primera Hosts will rest a lot of players due to international commitments. Independiente have been playing very tightly lately but 5 games in the last 12 days is too much, even if they have been rotating. They have 3 victories in the last 7 games but none of them was against a high-profile adversary.

Banfield recovered Datolo and Bersolo and also did not have penalties in their game on 22 February (unlike Independiente who went through overtime). Moreover, visitors have to travel just 15 KM for this game since both teams are from the same region in Buenos Aires. Therefore, good fan support should be present. Banfield have no victories since 26 January but they played well on the pitch, including a nice performance against Boca and an unlucky elimination from Nacional.

I think bookies are exaggerating Banfield’s poor form. Hosts have vital missings and their bench is not as long as the ones of Boca and River Plate. Moreover, Independiente have no wins at their home venue since 26 December.

Last time the two teams played in this stadium, Banfield won 0-1 here.
