Defensa Y Justica can grab a first home win of the campaign

"Defensa Y Justica badly need this victory and have a decent home record domestically, while Aldosivi have lost three out of three away and scored just once."

Back Defensa Y Justica to beat Aldosivi & under 2.5 goals @ 3.55/2

We start the week with a trip to Argentina where Defensa Y Justica are tipped to win their basement battle with Aldosivi.

Defensa Y Justica v Aldosivi
Monday 11 July
23:00 BST kick-off

There's a basement battle at the bottom of the Argentina top-flight as Defensa Y Justica host Aldosivi still looking for their first win of this campaign.

Aldosivi actually prop up the division on goal difference after a recent 5-0 hammering at Racing Club, but at least they managed to grab a win last time out.

The hosts still haven't broken their duck, with just four draws and four goals scored to show from their six outings so far.

This looks like an attritional battle and Defensa Y Justica won't have a better chance of grabbing a win than against a team who've lost three out of three on the road so far and scored just once.

There has been just four goals in Defensa's three home games with the hosts scoring just twice, so added with Aldosivi's scoring problems on the road then this game hardly screams goals.

Aldosivi could well pinch a draw here at what is a big price considering just how many stalemates we've seen in Defensa home games.

But the hosts badly need a win, and know this is the perfect opportunity, so a low-scoring home victory is definitely the bet here.

Goals are favoured by the bookies here as the hosts have stuck four away against Aldosivi in their last three home meetings, but only one of those has been a recent contest.

And going on recent form, and the current situation, this won't be a flowing game with the hosts needing just to grind out an important three points.
