Team News: Danubio
Salvador Ichazo (Unknown Injury) and Matías Jones (Knee Injury) are unavailable for Danubio manager Mauricio Larriera. Ineligible players who cannot play in this game through suspension are Lucas Rodríguez and Lucas Monzón.
Team News: Defensor Sporting
Owing to an otherwise full-strength squad, there is just a single fitness issue for the Defensor Sporting boss Ignacio Risso to be concerned about. Gastón Álvarez (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
We’re thinking that Defensor Sporting and Danubio could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.
A close call, and we think a draw is quite likely. We’re therefore expecting a tight encounter, finishing with a score draw after 90 minutes.
