Racing Club - Failing to Find Consistency in Argentine Primera Division (DLLWW)
Racing Club dominated and kickstarted their Libertadores 2023 campaign against Nublense and managed to win (0-2). After a clean sheet victory, Racing didn't continue the same form in the Argentine Primera Division and lost to Gimnasia (3-1) and Newell's Old Boys (0-1). However, the recent drawn fixture against Independiente (1-1) will give the home team some confidence before the match against Aucas. Matias Rojas scored the important equalizer from the penalty spot in the 38th minute of play. Despite the current form, Racing has been defeated only once in its last seven home matches. With 6 goals scored in the last five matches played, Racing will be confident in securing the lead and scoring at least a goal against Aucas.
Expected Opening Lineup for Racing Club
Gabriel Arias; Iván Pillud, Leonardo Sigali, Emiliano Insúa, Gabriel Rojas; Tomás Avilés, Aníbal Moreno, Nicolás Oroz; Matias Rojas, Paolo Guerrero, Gabriel Hauche.
