Godoy Cruz

Godoy Cruz comes from an away match where they secured an important point against Estudiantes with a 1-1 draw on June 3. After a significant period without being on the field, they are back. Their position in the league standings is not very good at the start of the season. Godoy has accumulated 2 points from three matches, meaning the team has yet to win at the start of the competition.

The team's record is 2 draws and 1 loss, scoring 1 goal in attack and conceding 2 goals in defense. The loss came against Barracas Central, raising an alarm since Barracas Central is a club fighting to avoid relegation in Argentine soccer.

Rosario Central

Rosario has played more matches in the league so far, with 4 games, and has accumulated 5 points in the competition. They are dividing their attention with a split schedule, participating in a continental cup.

Rosario Central was in the group stage of the CONMEBOL Libertadores Cup but was eliminated before reaching the next stage. The team finished third in Group 7, behind Atlético-MG (Brazil) and Peñarol (Uruguay). However, third place secured a spot in the Round of 32 of the Copa Sudamericana playoffs, where they will face Internacional, a Brazilian team, in July.

So, after this visit to Godoy Cruz in the Liga Profesional, their next two matches will be against Barracas in the Copa Argentina and Internacional.

Returning to the league, Rosario Central played against Lanús and drew 1-1 on June 2, wasting points at home.

The team is in the mid-table, in 13th place with 5 points. Their only victory came as a visitor. Rosario Central beat Dep. Riestra 2-0, with goals scored by striker Lucas Martínez Dupuy and Fabricio Oviedo.

Godoy Cruz vs Rosario Central Betting Odds

Analyzing the odds from bookmakers, the home team Godoy Cruz enters as a slight favorite, with odds priced at +108 to win the match. Rosario Central is at odds of +320 on the moneyline. These odds may adjust as the match approaches.

There isn't much difference between the teams in the league. However, we must consider that Rosario Central has a more exhausting schedule at the moment.

For goal markets, an early bet would be interesting, as the goal line in bookmakers is at Over 2.0 goals with odds +108. Godoy Cruz should be more aggressive on the field due to their urgent need for victories in the league.

Prediction

My recommendation is for the match to have OVER 2.0 Asian Goals with odds +108 at Bet365. Place your bet before the odds drop by betting on Bet365 bookmaker with a bonus available for ThePicks users.

The Over 2.0 Asian Goals market gives us protection in case only two goals are scored, allowing for a refund of the investment. But I believe this should be the minimum that will happen. About 65% of the matches had the Over 1.5 Goals completed. Godoy Cruz is a team in this match where bettors can align the statistics with the need for victory. The team will face a tough challenge after this match against Rosario Central, as they will play Racing as visitors. Home teams maintained an average of 1.29 goals per game in the league, bet on OVER 2.0 Goals odds +108.
