As the Argentine Primera Division heats up, Talleres and Platense are set to face off at the Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes on Friday.

This matchup promises excitement as both teams aim to secure crucial points. Here’s a detailed look at the form, news, and predictions for this game.

Team Form

Talleres

The home team has had a stellar start to the season. Talleres remains undefeated after four rounds, securing three wins and one draw.

They sit joint-top of the league with 10 points, trailing only on goal difference. Their robust defence and consistent attack have seen them score in every league match except one, with their recent form showing a two-match winning streak.

Platense

Platense, on the other hand, has had a mixed start. They are currently 17th in the table with five points from four matches.

Despite a promising start with a win against Boca Juniors, Platense's inconsistent performance, particularly in front of the goal, has been a setback.

Their away form is also concerning, with only two wins in their last ten away league matches.

Recent Performances

Talleres' recent performances include a 4-2 victory over Central Cordoba and a 1-0 win in the domestic cup against Colon.

Their only recent setback was a loss to Sao Paulo in the Copa Libertadores.

Platense managed a significant win against Boca Juniors but struggled in their last outing, losing to Huracan on penalties in the Copa Argentina.

Team News

Talleres

Talleres will be missing Gustavo Bou (groin) and Ulises Ortegoza (knee) due to injuries.

Bruno Barticciotto, who has scored three of Talleres’ nine goals this season, will be a key player in their attacking lineup.

Predicted Lineup: Herrera; Benavidez, Catalan, Suarez, Navarro; J. Portillo, Galarza, M. Portillo; Martinez, Girotti, Barticciotto.

Platense

Platense is dealing with several injuries, with Raul Lozano (knee), Gonzalo Valdivia (ankle), Ciro Rius (knee), Gabriel Hachen (muscle), and Carlos Villalba (foot) all sidelined.

Mateo Pellegrino, who has scored both of Platense’s goals this season, will be pivotal in their attacking efforts.

Predicted Lineup: Cozzani; Saborido, Vazquez, Suso, Quiroga; Juarez, Gomez, Picco, Ocampo; Pellegrino, Martinez.

Prediction

Given Talleres' superior form and home advantage, they are favoured to win this matchup.

Platense's inconsistent performance and poor away record further tilt the scales in favour of Talleres.

Our Prediction: Talleres 2-0 Platense
