Team News: Tigre
The Tigre boss Diego Martínez does not have any fitness concerns at all before this match owing to a completely injury-free group to pick from.
We think that Matadores should use a 4-3-3 system, beginning the first half with Manuel Roffo, Lucas Blondel, Víctor Cabrera, Abel Luciatti, Sebastián Prieto, Ezequiel Fernández, Alexis Castro, Sebastian Prediger, Lucas Menossi, Mateo Retegui and Facundo Colidio.
Team News: Rosario Central
Rosario Central manager Germán Rivarola has not got a full squad to pick from. Juan Komar (Unknown Injury), Francesco Lo Celso (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Luca Martínez Dupuy (Ruptured cruciate ligament) can’t be considered.
We reckon that El Canalla could decide to play in a 4-4-2 system, going with Gaspar Servio, Ismael Cortez, Cristian Baez, Facundo Almada, Lautaro Blanco, Gino Infantino, Mateo Tanlongo, Marcelo Benítez, Luciano Ferreyra, Alan Marinelli and Alejo Veliz.
When taking all factors into account, Tigre can and should see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
At the same time, Rosario Central will be up against it to get a goal of their own although we do see them scoring here.
Accordingly, we see a controlled 3-1 margin for Tigre at the conclusion of the game.
