Patronato take on the visitors Rosario Central in the round 20 match of Argentinian Liga Profesional. The match will be played on Wednesday, September 21st at Estadio Presbítero Bartolomé Grella (Paraná).
Patronato more or less corrected their spring failures. The “Santo” is one of those teams that do not particularly have something to be proud of. Until the middle of the last decade, there was a pause of 37 years between performances in the elite division. Returning, the club also showing quite modest results. For example, in last year's championship there was only 23rd place - with 26 participants. And in the spring, in the Copa Diego Maradona, they managed to gaine a miserable 10 points in 14 matches, which was the worst record of the tournament. Against this wretched background, the performance in the Liga Profesional in the summer is not even progress, but some kind of breakthrough. They manage to stay at the top half of the table, and the defeat against Racing Avellaneda was only the 2nd in the last 10 meetings.

Rosario Central again not particularly impressive. The "Railroad" are definitely not Boca nor River Plate. But she still has 4 championship titles in their assets. And the club won the cup not so long ago, in the 2017/2018 season. Against this background, the latest results, if not disappointing, then definitely not encouraging. After 16th place in last year's championship, Rosario Central also failed in the Copa Diego Maradona, where he closed the table of their group (though with 14 points). In the course of the current Liga, a risky decision was made: Tevez, who had quit playing as a football player, got appointed a coach. Carlitos, at least, did not lead to a sharp improvement: as before, wins alternate with draws and defeats. Recently they played only 1-1 with Estudiantes at home. Moreover, Frias scored the equalizing goal in the 91st minute.
Rosario Central have not lost a head-to-head for 3 years in a row. In 2019, there was a draw, then they managed to beat Patronato twice. Both teams aren't particularly bright. But Patronato plays at home, and should win against Rosario's level opponent.
Prediction for the match: Patronato to win.
