Team News: Platense
The Platense manager Omar de Felippe will be thankful to have no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this match with a completely injury-free group to pick from.
Team News: Racing Club
Due to a mostly healthy squad, there is just the sole fitness worry for the Racing Club boss Fernando Gago to be concerned about. Mauricio Martínez (Ruptured cruciate ligament) misses out for this game.
Looking at these two, we feel that Racing Club and Platense could both well score here although it’s hard to see a clear-cut winner.
