Back-to-back league wins over Patronato and Aldovisi have certainly aided their push up the table.
Despite the recent good results, they are just five points clear of their 23rd place opponents in the table.
The two latest wins brought relief for the home side, as they had failed to score in their previous three outings in the Primera Division.
Union’s recent home form has been inconsistent, as they have won just three of their previous eight matches on home soil in the Argentinian top-flight.
Their recent home matches have tended to be low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in nine of their previous 11 league matches on home soil.
Union have had the upper hand over the visitors in recent meetings, as the home team have won four of their previous six meetings with the visitors.
Platense have started the new league campaign in an inconsistent manner. A 0-0 draw against Patronato last time out means that they have won just one of their last eight league matches, having failed to win any of their previous five outings in the Primera Division.
Unsurprisingly, considering their position in the table, Platense have a poor recent away record in the Argentinian top-flight. In fact, they have won just one of their previous eight league matches on their travels.
Poor defensive displays have played a key role in that underwhelming recent away run, as Platense have conceded at least two goals in five of their previous eight league matches on their travels.
PlusBet.net predicts that Union Santa Fe will record a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
