Team News: Danubio
The Danubio manager Esteban Conde doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this game with a completely injury-free squad available to choose from.
Team News: Fénix
Thanks to a mainly healthy group, there’s just the lone fitness issue for the Fénix boss Leonel Rocco to be concerned about. Agustín Requena (Meniscus damage) won’t be playing here.
We’re inclined to think that Fénix will have to work hard as a team to be putting a goal past this Danubio side who will likely be able to grind out a win.
We’re therefore expecting a good tussle with a 1-0 winning margin for Danubio when the referee blows for full-time.
We’ll see what happens.
