​Argentine Division 1 -- Independiente vs Estudiantes La Plata Game Preview

Pick:

AH Estudiantes La Plata ()  @

Analysis:

Estudiantes will travel to Independiente on Monday and will have a chance to keep their first-place position in the Argentine Primera Division campaign.

Independiente
Independiente lost their first match of the season 2-1 to Argentinos Juniors last time out. That defeat extended their losing streak away from home in this tournament to six games. A win on Monday would help them a lot in their bid to qualify for one of South America's top club championships next season.




Estudiantes La Plata
After overcoming Sarmiento 2-1 in their previous meeting, the La Plata team remains unblemished after four matches in this round of the domestic season. They have not won a trophy since winning the Apertura domestic championship in 2010, but they are now tied with Racing for the overall title in Argentina.

Prediction
Estudiantes appear to have struck the correct mix for success this season, and Independiente may find it difficult to break down their tight defensive system.
