Aldosivi vs Colon – Primera Division.
Estadio Jose Maria Minella, Mar de Plata – 29 August 2016, 23:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Aldosivi and Colon will play their fourth head to head match to open the new season in Primera Division. The teams have one win each with the last match ending in a 1 – 1 draw exactly one year ago when Sand gave Aldosivi the lead in the very first minute. However, Benegas leveled the score 27 minutes later. Sand was the top scorer of the league wearing Lanus’ shirt last season.
Aldosivi will have strong ambitions entering the new season as they brought Paraguayan striker with great potential Claudio Cesar Correa on loan as well as they signed Acosta from Pescara, Yeri from Banfield, Sosa from Danubio and Brum from Gimnasia La Plata. They did sell midfielder Santiago Rosales to Racing Club for €2.4M, but the team in general should look stronger than they did last season when they came 11th in the group B.
Colon on the other side were struggling a lot over the last couple of seasons usually ending in the bottom part of the league being much closer to the relegation than to the contest for the upper part of the table. They ended last season in an awful way with four consecutive defeats and no goal scored at all, so the fact they appointed new manager Paolo Montero should not surprise. The team signed Walter Acuna from Olimpo to strengthen the potential up front, but we doubt the Argentine youngster has the capacity of sending the team to where Montero wants to see it.
None of the teams belong to the top of Argentine football, and both Aldosivi and Colon had huge issues with scoring goals last season. The two of their three matches in total have seen less than three goals scored, as we expect this one at the opening of the new season to end in similar fashion. The odds of 3/5 given on Under 2.5 goals represent a decent value and will be our main pick for this match.
