Team News: Colón
The Colón manager Néstor Gorosito will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this match owing to a fully injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: Rosario Central
Rosario Central manager Miguel Russo has to currently contend with reduced team options. Walter Montoya (Ruptured ankle ligament), Maximiliano Lovera (Stiffness), Axel Werner (Strain), Facundo Agüero (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury) and Francis Mac Allister (Ruptured cruciate ligament) are not able to play.
We feel that over the course of the game, Rosario Central will need to push hard to score against this Colón lineup who we reckon will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 advantage for Colón at the conclusion of the game.
Should be interesting.
