Preview: Patronato vs. Independiente - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Monday's Argentine Primera Division clash between Patronato and Independiente, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Patronato will be looking to claim just their second win of the season when they play host to Independiente on Monday.

The visitors, meanwhile, are currently in sixth position, and they will be aiming to clinch their third consecutive victory in all competitions.


Match preview

Patronato have four points to their name after their opening four league matches, leaving them in 23rd place in the Primera Division.

Their league campaign began with a 1-1 home draw against Velez Sarsfield before losing 2-0 to Gimnasia in their first away match.

After picking up one point from their opening two games, Patronato bounced back in style on matchday three, picking up their first win of the Primera season.

A Facundo Cobos strike proved enough to help his side edge out Aldosivi, but they were unable to follow that win with a positive result, falling to a 3-1 away defeat in their most recent outing.

Having seen three players sent off in both of their away defeats, Patronato will be pleased to return to home surroundings, with the hosts aiming to build upon the four points that they have collected from their two home games.

In contrast to their hosts, Independiente have won two of their opening four league games, helping them accumulate seven points.

Both of those league wins occurred on home turf, while their two away matches have yielded only one point, although they picked up an away cup win in their most recent encounter.

A 79th-minute strike from Juan Cazares helped Independiente squeeze past Atletico Tucuman to book their place in the last 16 of the Copa Argentina.

Following their cup victory, Independiente will now turn their attention back to league action as they bid to clinch their first away league win of the season.

They will also be aiming to continue their recent fine form in front of goal, having scored in each of their last five matches in all competitions.

We say: Patronato 1-2 Independiente

Although Independiente have failed to win their opening two away league games, they have prevailed in their last two meetings with Patronato, and we think they will take confidence from those results to claim a narrow victory on Monday.
