Against All Odds: Eye of the Tigre

11May 2013

Argentina - Torneo Inicial


Argentina's Racing Club are odds-on for their clash with Tigre tonight but Paul Robinson thinks that those who tune into Beffair Live Video at 00:15 could see a surprise result.


Racing Club have made a pretty poor start to the new campaign as they are only 10th in the league and already knocked out of the Copa Argentina at the hands of minnows Tristán Suárez. They've won just one of their last five matches in the Primera Division and failed to even score against Velez Sarsfield last time.


Perhaps most worryingly for manager Luis Zubeldía is the fact that his side have won just once at home this term. They may have only lost once as well, but four draws just aren't good enough. Goals have been at a premium at Estadio Presidente Perón - four scored in half a dozen matches - and they've fired three blanks.


Tigre have been much improved this year and they are up in 12th place thanks to two victories from their last three. It's their Copa Libertadores form which has perhaps been the most impressive though as after making it out of their group, they have a first leg advantage over Olimpia in their last 16 tie.


Their record away from home has been a bit hit and miss - three wins and three losses from their last half dozen in all competitions - but the positive is that they are scoring plenty of goals. They netted two at Colon and Velez Sarsfield and five at Libertad. That should stand them in good stead tonight against a team who are struggling for a cutting edge.


Racing Club's form doesn't warrant them being an odds-on shot, so with their price trading around the 1.98 mark, I have to make them my lay of the day.
