Team News: Defensa y Justicia
The Defensa y Justicia manager Sebastián Beccacece doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a completely injury-free group ready to go.
We are thinking that Halcón will probably make use of the 4-2-3-1 system in the match and select Ezequiel Unsain, Nicolás Tripichio, Adonis Frías, Nazareno Colombo, Alexis Soto, Federico Versaci, Julián López, Nicolas Fernandez, Gabriel Alanis, Gastón Togni and Agustin Fontana.
Team News: Arsenal de Sarandí
Due to a completely healthy squad available to select from, the Arsenal de Sarandí manager Leonardo Madelón doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash.
There’s a good chance that Los del Viaducto will likely utilise a 4-4-2 formation using Alejandro Medina, Julian Navas, Ignacio Gariglio, Gustavo Canto, Damian Perez, Mauro Pittón, Braian Rivero, Dardo Miloc, Joaquín Ibáñez, Sebastián Lomónaco and Facundo Kruspzky.
When taking everything into account, Arsenal de Sarandí will have a tough ask to be putting a goal past this Defensa y Justicia outfit who we think will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
