Team News: Atlético Tucumán
The Atlético Tucumán boss Lucas Pusineri has a full complement, with no fitness worries at all coming into this clash owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection.
We are thinking that El Decano should opt for a 4-4-2 formation for the game and select Carlos Lampe, Martin Garay, Bruno Bianchi, Manuel Capasso, Matias Orihuela, Ciro Rius, Guillermo Acosta, Ramiro Carrera, Joaquin Pereyra, Cristian Menendez and Ramiro Ruiz.
Team News: Talleres
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, the Talleres boss Pedro Caixinha doesn’t have any fitness worries to report coming into this clash.
There’s a good chance that La T could decide to play in a 4-2-3-1 system, starting the game with Guido Herrera, G. Americo Benavidez, Matias Catalan, Rafael Perez, Enzo Hernan Diaz, Rodrigo Villagra, Alan Franco, Francisco Pizzini, Rodrigo Garro, Matias Godoy and Diego Valoyes.
In our opinion, Talleres may find it difficult to score against this Atlético Tucumán team who we reckon should get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We therefore fancy a narrow 1-0 advantage for Atlético Tucumán at the end of the 90 minutes.
Little in this one.
