Independiente are playing Huracan at the Liga Profesional, Round 2 of Argentina on September 15.
Independiente (also known as Indenpendiente) and Huracan (commonly referred to as Huracán) meet again a year after the Liga Profesional Round 2 match which ended in a draw 1-1. Independiente are aproaching the match after a defeat from Estudiantes de La Plata last Sunday. The coach and the players will probably put extra effort in the defense as they have been conceding goals for 3 consecutive matches now.
Huracan, on the other hand, are approaching the match in a good mood securing victories in 5 straight games against Racing, Banfield, Instituto, Velez Sarsfield and Platense.
Independiente have lost to Estudiantes de La Plata in their previous match while Huracan are on a winning streak – they have won Racing, Banfield, Instituto, Velez Sarsfield and Platense in their previous 5 matches. Overall, Independiente have won 6 of their last 19 matches, losing 9 and drawing 4, while Huracan have won 6 of their last 20 matches, losing 9 and drawing 5.
Independiente have won twice (2-1 against Velez Sarsfield on 28th of August and 0-0 against Central Cordoba on 16th of August) and lost 4 times (1-1 against Estudiantes de La Plata on 10th of September, 0-1 against Colon on 20th of August, 0-2 against Boca Juniors on 30th of July and 1-0 against Tucuman on 24th of July) in their most recent 6 matches.
Huracan have won 5 times (3-5 against Racing on 10th of September, 2-0 against Banfield on 22nd of August, 0-2 against Instituto on 10th of August, 1-0 against Velez Sarsfield on 31st of July and 0-1 against Platense on 23rd of July) and lost once (0-1 against Talleres Cordoba on 15th of July) in their most recent 6 matches.
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just a single fitness concern for the Independiente gaffer Carlos Tevez to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group of players. Rodrigo Márquez (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t play.
Owing to a completely healthy squad to pick from, the Huracan boss Diego Martínez has zero fitness concerns to report coming into this match.
Independiente and Huracan have met 6 times since March 2020. Independiente have won 3 times, 1 match ended in a draw while Huracan have won twice. The most recent match between them took place on August 17, 2022 at the Liga Profesional, Round 2 of Argentina which ended in a draw – 1-1. Independiente have scored 10 goals in these 6 head-to-head matches in total while Huracan have scored 6.
