Team News: Montevideo City Torque
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just a single fitness concern for the Montevideo City Torque gaffer Pablo Marini to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Nicolás Digiano (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out. Leandro Ezquerra will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: River Plate
Thanks to a largely full-strength group of players, there is just the one fitness issue for the River Plate boss Jorge Fossati to be concerned about. Facundo Boné (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Horacio Salaberry and Sebastián Píriz.
We’re thinking that River Plate could find themselves up against it to be putting a goal past this Montevideo City Torque lineup who we think will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re therefore anticipating a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 win for Montevideo City Torque at the end of this game.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
