Independiente isn’t having the best possible season, but improvement in form is more than obvious in their case in recent weeks. Currently, team stands only at 12th position at the table, but have three victories and one draw in last four games played. They come from two consecutive victories, most recent one being against Temperley 1:0 last weekend.
Even though it was only a narrow victory, their performance and quality difference was bigger than what the final result shows. Only goal was scored via Albertengo in 54th minute, but the visiting side created few more dangerous situations in front of opponents goal, while the hosts looked rather passive and barely had any chance. They are now six points away from the positions that will be playing in Copa Libertadores play-offs and no doubt that such positions would be their goal – so the team will be going for another three pointer here and continuation of their good form.
Atletico Rafaela, on the other side, currently sits third from the bottom without much bigger ambitions for the rest of the season. They are eight points away from the Copa Sudamericana play-off placed and middle of the table, while looking at their roster’s quality – there is no doubt that the team won’t be able to interfere in that fight.
After seventeen rounds played, they have only two victories, six draws and nine defeats, being at the same time the team that conceded the most goals in the league – thirty till now. In the most recent game, they suffered heavy 1:5 defeat at home against River Plate. They were playing mostly using counter attacks and tried to stand more passive, but actually had a decent amount of chances, however effectivity remains one of their bigger problems. All they were able is to reduced the deficit temporarily to 2:1 before the halftime, but the players of River Plate were simply too good, are much more experienced and simply knew what they want during the match.
Without any doubt, Independiente is much more quality side here. Playing at home should only give them extra push and they should be able to get an easy victory without problems in the last phase of the match.
