Team News: San Lorenzo
Looking at personnel, there is just one fitness concern for the San Lorenzo manager Rubén Insúa to be concerned about from a near full-strength group of players. Jeremías James (Ruptured cruciate ligament) is out of contention.
We think that Ciclón look set to use the 3-4-3 formation in the match featuring Augusto Batalla, Federico Gattoni, Cristian Zapata, Gaston Hernández, Jalil Elias, Juan Ignacio Méndez, Gonzalo Maroni, N. Fernandez Mercau, Ezequiel Cerutti, Adam Bareiro and Nahuel Barrios.
Team News: Estudiantes de La Plata
Estudiantes de La Plata boss Ricardo Zielinski has some current player fitness concerns. Fabián Noguera (Knee Injury), Mauro Boselli (Foot Injury) and Ezequiel Muñoz (Ruptured cruciate ligament) are not ready for selection.
It’s our belief that Los Pincharratas might utilise a 3-4-2-1 system, going with Jeronimo Pourtau, Agustín Rogel, Jorge Morel, Luciano Lollo, Leonardo Godoy, Jorge Rodriguez, Fernando Zuqui, Emmanuel Mas, Manuel Castro, Pablo Piatti and Leandro Diaz.
We feel that over the course of the game, Estudiantes de La Plata will need things to go their way to register a score against this San Lorenzo team who we think will likely score one, at least.
That’s why our selection here is for a very competitive game with a 1-0 victory for San Lorenzo at the end of the 90 minutes.
