Team News: Argentinos Juniors
The Argentinos Juniors boss Gabriel Milito has a full complement, with no fitness worries at all coming into this clash thanks to a completely healthy group to pick from.
Team News: Racing Club
Thanks to a largely full-strength group of players, there’s only the lone fitness worry for the Racing Club manager Juan Pizzi to contend with. Ezequiel Schelotto (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We feel that in this game, Racing Club are dangerous enough to get a goal against this Argentinos Juniors outfit, however it realistically won’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We reckon that it will be both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Argentinos Juniors at full-time. Could easily see this go either way.
