Rosario Central vs Newell’s Old Boys Tips and Prediction
Despite playing well on defense against Independiente last weekend and preventing the hosts from getting a shot on goal, Rosario was unable to break through and had to settle for just their fourth draw of 2022.
Since Carlos Tevez took over as manager, El Canalla have only collected four of the potential 12 points, so his club still has a lot to improve on if they want to avoid placing in the bottom three. At the time of this writing, Rosario is currently ranked 23rd in the Argentine Primera Division table, eight points below archrivals Newell’s Old Boys and only three points above the relegation zone.
El Canalla will be confident of winning the Thursday derby against La Lepra because they have only lost one of their last eight meetings with them, despite losing their most recent meeting 1-0 at home in March. El Canalla has won four of their last six home games this season.
With four wins and four draws, Newell’s Old Boys are one of only three top-flight teams that are still unbeaten in the second half of the season.
La Lepra have lost each of their previous three games, including the draw last weekend against Racing Club, and have been unable to maintain their top spot in the Argentine Primera Division standings.
Argentinos Juniors, Atletico Tucuman, and Godoy Cruz are the other three teams with 16 points, along with Javier Sanguinetti’s group, which is now second in the standings.
In their last five visits, Newell’s Old Boys have had a mixed record at Rosario Central, winning twice, losing twice, and drawing once.
La Lepra, on the other hand, have gone unbeaten in their previous four away league games, winning three of them, and they’ll be fired up to upset their city rivals on Thursday in hopes of returning to the top of the standings.
Both teams, especially the home team, who is precariously placed just above the bottom three, will not want to leave this highly contested derby on the losing end.
We anticipate Rosario to get a hard-fought point at the Estadio Gigante de Arroyito, despite the fact that Newell’s Old Boys will be considered the small favorites given their current performance.
