Team News: Talleres
The Talleres manager Pedro Caixinha will be thankful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash with a fully healthy group ready to go.
It’s our opinion that La T will probably use the 4-2-3-1 system in the match and select Alan Aguerre, Julio Buffarini, Matias Catalan, Rafael Pérez, Angelo Martino, Christian Oliva, Alan Franco, Francisco Pizzini, Matías Godoy, Juan Giacone and Rodrigo Garro.
Team News: Colón
Thanks to a completely healthy squad available for selection, the Colón manager Sergio Rondina has zero fitness concerns whatsoever before this match.
We’re of the thinking that Los Sabaleros might make use of a 4-1-3-2 lineup, settling for Ignacio Chicco, Augusto Schott, Facundo Garces, Gian Nardelli, Leandro Ojeda, Leonel Picco, Christian Bernardi, Facundo Farias, Santiago Pierotti, Tomas Sandoval and L. Miguel Rodriguez.
In our view, Colón will need to push hard to break down this Talleres team who will likely be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We therefore see a 1-0 victory for Talleres when the referee blows for full-time.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
