Team News: Talleres
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the sole fitness concern for the Talleres boss Javier Gandolfi to be concerned with due to a largely intact set of players. Julio Buffarini (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined.
We think that La T will possibly opt for a 4-2-3-1 system for the game featuring Guido Herrera, Gastón Benavídez, Matias Catalan, Lucas Suarez, Juan Carlos Portillo, Ulises Ortegoza, Rodrigo Villagra, Diego Valoyes, Rodrigo Garro, Ramón Sosa and Michael Santos.
Team News: Argentinos Juniors
Due to a mostly full-strength group of players, there’s just the one fitness problem for the Argentinos Juniors boss Gabriel Milito to be concerned with. Lucas Ambrogio (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t be playing here.
From our viewpoint, Bichitos Colorados seem likely to make use of a 3-5-2 lineup, going with Alexis Martin Arias, Kevin Mac Allister, Marco Di Cesare, Lucas Villalba, Javier Cabrera, Franco Moyano, Alan Rodriguez, F. González Metilli, Santiago Montiel, Leonardo Heredia and Gaston Veron.
In this match, Argentinos Juniors have the capability to put a goal past this Talleres lineup, however it may not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We think that it’s going to be a narrow 2-1 winning margin for Talleres when the full-time whistle blows. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
