Team News: Defensor Sporting
Mathías Cardacio (Muscle Injury) and Gastón Álvarez (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be taking part for Defensor SC manager Ignacio Risso.
Team News: Fénix
Thanks to a mainly available squad, there is only a single fitness problem for the Fénix manager Juan Carrasco to be concerned with. Agustín Canobbio (Leg Injury) misses out for this game. Andrés Barboza cannot play in this game through suspension.
We feel that in this game, Fénix will likely create enough chances to score a goal against this Defensor Sporting side, although it probably won’t be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re expecting a very close game with a 2-1 advantage for Defensor Sporting by the conclusion of the game. Should be a good one.
