Team News: Tigre
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the lone fitness concern for the Tigre boss Juan Sara to contend with due to a largely intact set of players. Ijiel Protti (Achilles tendon rupture) misses out.
Team News: Estudiantes de La Plata
Estudiantes de La Plata boss Eduardo Domínguez has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Deian Verón (Lumbago), Luciano Lollo (Pubalgia), Javier Altamirano (Torn muscle bundle), Franco Zapiola (Ill), Zaid Romero (Torn muscle bundle), Guido Carrillo (Hamstring Injury), Fabricio Iacovich (Metatarsal Fracture) and Pablo Piatti (Ruptured cruciate ligament) are not able to play.
Our feeling is that Estudiantes de La Plata and Tigre could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
