THE TEAM NEWS

ESTUDIANTES

  • Estudiantes La Plata sit in eighth place of the standings with 22 points and while they have posted a W7, D1, L7 record this season, they have won four of their last five matches. El Pincha, as they’re known locally, are coming off a 3-2 away loss at Colon Santa Fe the last time out.
  • Centre-back Jonathan Schunke has been listed as out after he was sent off the last time out. Franco Sivetti and Gonzalo Jara have been ruled out through injury.

Expected starting XI: Mariano Andújar; Facundo Sánchez, Facundo Mura, Juan Eduardo Fuentes, Ivan Erquiaga; Enzo Kalinski, Iván Gómez; Manuel Castro, Gastón Fernández, Edwar López; Mateo Retegui

ATLETICO TUCUMAN

  • Atletico Tucuman have been one of the biggest surprises in the Argentina Primera so far, as they sit in sixth place with 23 points but could move all the way up to third place if they win here while other results go their way. They enter this game on an impressive seven-game undefeated streak and their latest league result was a 2-2 home draw against San Lorenzo.
  • Augusto Lotti and Gustavo Toledo have been listed as out due to injury. Cristián Erbes, meanwhile, will be suspended after he was shown a red card during the previous league match. The loss of the central midfielder will be a big one for Tucuman.

Expected starting XI: Cristián Lucchetti; Marcelo Ortiz, Bruno Bianchi, Yonathan Cabral, Fabián Monzón; Guillermo Acosta, Leonardo Heredia, Ariel Rojas; Gonzalo Castellani; Javier Toledo, Leandro Díaz

THE PREDICTION

Estudiantes have been solid of late but their morale shouldn’t be very high given their recent loss, while Atletico Tucuman have been one of the hottest teams in the Argentina Superliga thus far. Their ability to secure positive results despite the environment or the opponent have made them reliable, and they are also showing a defensive stability since they concede less than one goal per game on average (12 goals conceded in 14 matches). Estudiantes have an even better defence, though, with only 11 goals conceded, and this should lead to a low-scoring affair. Based on how well these two teams match against each other, this game could well end in a draw.
