Banfield take on the visitors Barracas Central in the round 5 match of Argentinian Liga Profesional. The match will be played on Saturday, June 25th at Estadio Florencio Sola (Buenos Aires).
Banfield is unlikely to be able to seriously improve this season. The "White-Greens" have a championship title in their assets (although it was in Apertura back in 2009). And the season before last, they reached the final of the Professional League Cup. But recent results have been frankly mediocre. Last season they finished on the 20th place. In the Cop Diego Maradona they took 19 points in 14 matches in the spring - an average result that did not allow them to break into the playoffs. In parallel, there was a failure in the Copa Sudamericana, where 5 points were taken. In the Loga, they also started with the defeat of Newell's Old Boys and a draw with Arsenal (Sarandi). And only against Central Cordova they managed to win. But this was followed by a 1-0 at Tigre’s field.

Barracas Central spends first year at this level. The Camioneros were founded in 1904. But they didn’t really show anything, moreover, only in 2019 they rose from the 3rd division of the country (and until 2010 they even performed in the 4th division). But in the last draw they managed to win the 2nd league. The debutant has already shown that he should not be underestimated – they were able to take 19 points in Copa Diego Maradona - literally 1 was not enough to finish in his group in 4th place and reach the playoffs. But at the same time, the newcomer started modestly in the Liga. With Central Cordoba and Tigre, it was possible to finish in a draw, 1-1 each, and then it was 1-2 with Union (Santa Fe). The debutant also tried to fight with Boca Juniors, even equalized the score before the halftime. But in the 2nd half Barracas conceded 2 more.
Barracas Central will make their debut in the Liga. So, it is not surprising that he will play against Banfield for the first time in history. Barracas Central is not hopeless, but is clearly weaker than the opponent, who also plays at home in this match. Betting on Banfield to win.
Prediction for the match: Banfield to win.
