📰 Team News: Lanús
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just a single fitness concern for the Lanús manager Frank Kudelka to contend with from an otherwise complete squad. Pedro de la Vega (Ruptured cruciate ligament) will miss out.
It looks as if Granate will possibly employ a 5-3-2 system in the match featuring Fernando Monetti, Leonel Di Placido, Matías Pérez, Diego Braghieri, Franco Ortellado, Nicolas Pasquini, Tomás Belmonte, Raul Loaiza, Facundo Pérez, Franco Troyansky and José Sand.
📰 Team News: Arsenal de Sarandí
Owing to a completely healthy group to choose from, the Arsenal de Sarandí boss Leonardo Madelón does not have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash.
We are inclined to think that Los del Viaducto seem likely to elect for a 4-4-2 system, going with Alejandro Medina, Cristian Chimino, Ignacio Gariglio, Gustavo Canto, Damian Perez, William Machado, Mauro Pittón, Dardo Miloc, Facundo Kruspzky, Sebastián Lomónaco and Lucas Cano.
In this match, Arsenal de Sarandí will likely create enough chances to score a goal against this Lanús lineup, although that possibly won’t quite be enough to avoid a loss.
We’re predicting a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Lanús at the end of this one. It really should be an interesting one.
