Team News: Patronato
The Patronato manager Facundo Sava doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this match with a completely healthy squad ready to go.
It looks as if El Patrón should go for a 4-4-2 formation, handing starts to Facundo Altamirano, Raúl Lozano, Leonel Mosevich, Francisco Álvarez, Lucas Kruspzky, Jonás Acevedo, Franco Leys, Tiago Banega, Sebastián Medina, Axel Rodriguez and Jonathan Herrera.
Team News: Boca Juniors
Out of a mainly available squad, there’s just a single fitness problem for the Boca Juniors manager Sebastián Battaglia to be concerned about. Agustín Almendra (Ankle Injury) misses out for this game.
It’s our belief that Los Xeneizes seem most likely to play in a 4-1-3-2 lineup, choosing Agustin Rossi, Luis Advincula, Carlos Zambrano, Marcos Rojo, Frank Fabra, Alan Varela, Juan Ramirez, Pol Fernández, Oscar Romero, Sebastián Villa and Luis Vázquez.
Here, we’re thinking that Patronato might have a difficult job to breach the defence of this Boca Juniors side who we think will likely score & stay on top.
That’s why we have predicted a good battle with a 0-1 win for Boca Juniors at the conclusion of the game.
Should be a close one.
