In all likelihood, Los Sabaleros should go for a 4-4-2 formation this time featuring Ignacio Chicco, Augusto Schott, Facundo Garces, Paolo Goltz, Rafael Delgado, Juan Alvarez, Leonel Picco, Juan Sánchez Miño, Christian Bernardi, Facundo Farias and Ramón Abila.
📋 Team News: Tigre
Thanks to a fully healthy group ready to go, the Tigre boss Diego Martínez has zero fitness concerns at all ahead of this match.
It’s our belief that Matadores will likely utilise a 4-4-2 formation, starting Manuel Roffo, Lucas Blondel, Brian Leizza, Abel Luciatti, Sebastián Prieto, Ijiel Protti, Ezequiel Fernández, Sebastian Prediger, Alexis Castro, Mateo Retegui and Facundo Colidio.
We feel that Tigre and Colón could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
Let’s see how it plays out, but a draw is looking likely to us. We therefore think that it’s going to be a hard-fought 1-1 score at the end of this game.
