Estudiantes is skillfully and successfully maneuvering between two tournaments: home one and international. The last time the Lions lost more than a month at home to Boca Juniors with a score of 1:0. Since then, the home team has five wins and three draws in two tournaments. Estudiantes eliminated Everton de Viña from Copa Libertadores qualification, beat Velez Sarsfield at home and drew with Nacional in Uruguay. In April, in the League Cup played a draw with Godoy Cruz, outplayed Central Cordoba and Barracas Central, and these teams were crashed. The excellent results allowed Estudiantes to lead the Group B standings. They scored 21 points, two more than Tigre and Aldosivi.

With 10 points from their last five matches, Tigre are in second place in Group B, two points behind leading Estudiantes.

Expert Betting Tips
Despite a 5:0 victory over Central Cordoba and a 6:1 win over Barracas Central, we believe Estudiantes will not win this coming Wednesday. The Lions will face the Tigers, their closest pursuers and direct rivals. It's no coincidence that the bookmakers have put this line on the game. Tigre on the road has not perfect statistics, but only one defeat in five matches.
The opponents are nearly equal in class, which is eloquently verbalized by the bookmaker line. If the odds for a tie are under three, then it is definitely worth considering this option for a bet. Also pay attention to the fact that Tigre likes to play away to a draw, it is obvious that this team has such a tactic of the game. At home - to play for a win, away - for a draw.
