Independiente soccer club have come to this competition after failing to secure an entry into the knockouts of the Libertadores. But this stint in the Libertadores seems to have benefited them.
They have improved their form considerably and they are also consistently finding the back of the net. It also needs to be mentioned that they have been on a good run at home for the past few weeks.
Meanwhile, Lanus have been on a poor streak of results recently. Most of their recent games have ended in losses and they have let in goals in huge numbers.
Particularly on the road they have been a total failure lately and in such fixtures their defense has been absolutely abysmal.
Independiente soccer club were unbeaten in 14 of their past 18 overall fixtures, and they had scored 2 or more goals in 2 of their past 3 games.
It also deserves to be mentioned that during this stretch they had registered 2 wins in a row on 3 separate occasions.
Moreover, they have lost just once at home since February and just twice in total in the past one year.
On the other hand, Lanus were winless in 7 of their previous 9 overall games, and they had let in 2 or more goals in 2 of their past 3 fixtures.
