As the Argentine Primera Division heats up, all eyes are on the upcoming clash between Argentinos Juniors and Central Cordoba.

This match promises to be a pivotal encounter, with both teams eager to secure crucial points. Here’s a detailed preview, prediction, and team news for the highly anticipated game at Estadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Match Preview

Argentinos Juniors will host Central Cordoba on Wednesday, seeking to maintain their impressive home record. Currently sitting fifth in the cumulative table,

Argentinos are coming off a 1-0 defeat to Belgrano. Despite their struggles on the road, their home form has been stellar, keeping them in contention for a top spot.

Argentinos Juniors' Home Dominance

Argentinos Juniors have been a formidable force at home this season. They remain unbeaten at Estadio Diego Armando Maradona in both phases of the competition.

With 32 domestic points in 2024, they are just four points shy of the title leaders, River Plate.

Pablo Guede’s squad has won four consecutive home matches across all competitions, with two clean sheets in that span.

Central Cordoba's Defensive Woes

Central Cordoba, on the other hand, has struggled defensively throughout the season. They have conceded the most goals (13) in the second phase of the competition.

Lucas Gonzalez's tenure as manager has been challenging, with 11 losses in 18 domestic matches.

Their away form has been particularly poor, with three consecutive defeats and a concerning goal difference.
