Meanwhile, Newell’s Old Boys have picked up just over 70 wins during this period. It is remarkable that a higher number of games have finished as a draw.

The recent trend between the two clubs is also in line with this statistic, as the two outfits have had little joy when it comes to celebrating three points on a frequent basis.
Rosario Central were able to display much better form during the 2019-20 campaign as the team finished in the ninth place of the league table.

The crucial problem for Rosario Central in the 2019-20 season was defence and it seems that the problem has not been sorted out completely.
Newell’s Old Boys
Newell’s Old Boys were able to finish just one point behind rivals Rosario Central in the 2019-20 table.

Newell’s Old Boys were defensively better than rivals Rosario Central last season, but the team still has a long way to go before they are able to turn this good run into consistent success.
