There aren’t many selection issues, with just one fitness concern for the Estudiantes de La Plata boss Ricardo Zielinski to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Ezequiel Muñoz (Ruptured cruciate ligament) misses out.

With a completely healthy squad to pick from, the Argentinos Juniors manager Gabriel Milito does not have any fitness concerns to report ahead of this clash.
When taking all factors into account, Argentinos Juniors should get enough chances to score a goal against this Estudiantes de La Plata side, although it probably won’t be as many as they’ll concede.
We think that it’s going to be both teams to score in a 2-1 advantage for Estudiantes de La Plata when the full-time whistle blows. Should be a good one.
