Team News: Racing Club
There’s just the lone fitness concern for the Racing Club boss Fernando Gago to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Mauricio Martínez (Ruptured cruciate ligament) is sidelined.
In all likelihood, La Academia could opt for a 4-3-3 formation in the match and select Matías Tagliamonte, Facundo Mura, Leonardo Sigali, Emiliano Insua, Fernando Prado, Jonathan Gomez, Emiliano Vecchio, Anibal Moreno, Gabriel Hauche, Maximiliano Romero and Enzo Copetti.
Team News: Unión de Santa Fe
With a fully healthy group available to select from, the Unión de Santa Fe manager Gustavo Munúa has no fitness concerns to report ahead of this clash.
We believe El Tatengue seem most likely to play in a 3-4-2-1 lineup, settling for Santiago Mele, Franco Calderón, Juan Carlos Portillo, Facundo Aguero, Federico Vera, Juan Ignacio Nardoni, Enzo Roldan, Lucas Esquivel, Mauro Luna Diale, Bryan Castrillon and Jonatan Álvez.
We’re envisaging that Unión de Santa Fe may not find it easy to be putting a goal past this Racing Club outfit who we think will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore expecting a very competitive game with a 1-0 advantage for Racing Club at the end of the 90 minutes.
It should be a good one.
