Estudiantes de La Plata
Estudiantes had a successful season in Argentina but failed to qualify directly for the Libertadores Cup. They beat Audax Italia (2:1 on aggregate) and Everton De Vina (2:0) in the knockout stages. In the group stage, Estudiantes performed very well. They managed to finish top of Group C, scoring 13 points. As for the Professional League Cup, the club reached the quarter-finals, which they lost on penalties to Argentinos Juniors.
Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata
In the Professional League Cup, Gimnasia had no luck. They fought to the last to qualify for the play-offs but failed to qualify for the higher-ranked Argentinos Juniors by a measly one point. In their previous match, they faced the Liniers in the round of 64 of the Argentinian Cup. It was not a particularly entertaining encounter, but the team beat their opponents to clinch promotion to the next stage (1:0).
Expert Betting Tips
In the La Plata derby, bookmakers favour Estudiantes for the win. Gimnasia is a tough team, but the Lions are still better now than their arch-rivals. We don't think there will be many goals because the opponents have not reached a classic total in four of the last five matches. We suggest betting on the first team not to lose, strengthening the odds with the total under.
