Barracas Central take on the visitors Rosario Central in the round 20 match of Argentinian Liga Profesional. The match will be played on Friday, June 9th at Claudio Fabian Tapia (Barracas).
Barracas Central were founded back in 1904 and even made it to the top level of Argentine football. However, that was during a time when everything was limited to amateur formats. Later on, the team from Buenos Aires took on very modest roles for a long time. Eventually, they managed to make their debut in the Primera B league in the 2019/2020 season. And last year, they finally played in the top division. By the way, they did quite well: they finished 5th in their group in the Diego Maradona Cup, narrowly missing out on the playoffs. In the "classic" championship, the newcomers secured a mid-table position, finishing 17th with 34 points after 27 matches. Currently, Rodolfo de Paoli's team is showing a similar statistical performance, and they have even started an unbeaten streak since the end of April. Of course, the 2-5 defeat to "Estudiantes" was shocking considering the overall performance. Now they need to prove that it was just a one-time setback by redeeming themselves in front of the fans with a successful home game.

Rosario Central are both older and, more importantly, have a much higher status than their opponents. While the latter is in their 2nd season in the Primera, the "yellow-blues" have won 4 championship titles. Moreover, they have also had success in cup competitions, with a trophy win in 2018. However, there was a recent decline that led them to the second division of Argentina. Last year, their statistics were also quite disappointing. In the Diego Maradona Cup, they finished last in their group, and in the Primera, they barely made it to the top 20. The current statistics are better, mainly because Miguel Angel Russo's team has a successful home record, which ensures a decent accumulation of points. On the other hand, they have only managed to win against "Huracan" in away matches. It was only in the last round that they achieved a breakthrough against a division newcomer, "Instituto," winning 4-1.
For understandable reasons, the clubs did not play against each other until last year. In 2022, there were matches in both the Diego Maradona Cup and the Primera, both held in Rosario. First, unexpectedly in March, "Barraquenses Central" won 3-1, but in August, the hosts took revenge with the same scoreline. The odds slightly favor the away team. However, in any case, it shouldn't be boring. Let's bet on the final outcome with a "total over 2.0 goals."
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 scored goals.
