Team News: Huracán
Looking at personnel, there is just one fitness concern for the Huracán manager Diego Dabove to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. César Ibáñez (Ruptured cruciate ligament) will miss out.
It seems likely that El Globo / Los Quemeros could opt for a 4-3-3 formation in the match featuring Lucas Cháves, Guillermo Soto, Fernando Tobio, Lucas Merolla, Walter Pérez, Santiago Hezze, Federico Fattori, Franco Cristaldo, Benjamin Garre, Matias Coccaro and Rodrigo Cabral.
Team News: Banfield
Due to a fully healthy group ready to go, the Banfield manager Claudio Vivas does not have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this game.
We are inclined to think that El Taladro seem most likely to make use of a 4-4-2 lineup, settling for Facundo Cambeses, Emanuel Coronel, Dylan Gissi, Alejandro Maciel, Luis Mago, Julian Palacios, Alejandro Cabrera, Lautaro Ríos, Agustín Urzi, Ramiro Enrique and Juan Manuel Cruz.
We envisage that Huracán should really create the chances to score more than once when they face Banfield, who may well struggle to score themselves.
We’re therefore expecting to see a comfortable 2-0 margin for Huracán at the end of this one.
