Argentina has a few days to recover from their dismal Copa Argentina exit and return their attention to their current domestic season.
After missing out on one of the biggest South American competitions by two points last season, the team from La Paternal has put itself in a far stronger position to avoid missing those tournaments again next year. presently ranked seventh overall, six points above the cutoff for a spot in the Copa Sudamericana in 2023.They have only lost once in league action, a 1-0 loss to Defensa y Justicia in the first half, although their home form has been a major factor in their domestic success this season.
Expect a close game with little chances when Gabriel Milito’s team takes the field because their past nine league games have all been decided by one goal or fewer and they haven’t given up more than one goal domestically at home.
In their 10 domestic games played at home this season, Argentinos have scored six times during the first half hour, suggesting that they receive a significant energy boost from their fans.

Diego Martinez looks to have this team on a trajectory to stay in the top-flight, hanging near the middle of the aggregate table despite recent results not going their way (13th).
El Bicho play with a lot more structure and balance at home even if they lost their most recent home game on Wednesday.
