THE TEAM NEWS

INDEPENDIENTE

  • Independiente are coming off a 2-2 away draw at Union de Santa Fe in their most recent league match, and that result now has El Rojo riding a three-game winless streak in the Superliga (D1, L2). Their five-game form reads W2, D1, L2, and they sit in 14th place with manager Sebastian Becaccece under heavy pressure.
  • Central midfielder Pedro Pablo Hernandez has been ruled out through injury, and he is expected to remain sidelined for a considerable amount of time. Fabricio Bustos is suspended after he was sent off in the previous match and Gaston Togni is out as well.

Expected Starting XI: Martín Campaña; Juan Sánchez Miño, Alan Franco, Jorge Figal, Gastón Silva; Lucas Romero, Pablo Pérez, Andres Roa; Martín Benítez, Silvio Romero, Cecilio Domínguez

SAN LORENZO

  • San Lorenzo suffered a 1-3 home defeat against Defensa y Justicia the last time out. That result made it three defeats in a row which resulted in Juan Antonio Pizzi’s dismissal a few days ago. San Lorenzo are 12th in the standings with 16 points but own a W1, L4 mark in their previous five league matches.
  • Nicolas Blandi and Victor Salazar have both been ruled out through injury. San Lorenzo are not expected to have any other absentees, though.

Expected Starting XI: Nicolás Navarro; Marcelo Herrera, Fabricio Coloccini, Bruno Pittón, Gianluca Ferrari; Gerónimo Poblete, Nahuel Barrios, Fernando Belluschi, Lucas Menossi, Ángel Romero; Alexander Díaz

THE PREDICTION

Both teams are dealing with poor runs of form, and neither has looked overly convincing in recent weeks to determine which side might be considered to be favourite. With that in mind, expect this heated derby to end up a bad-tempered stalemate that helps neither team.
