THE TEAM NEWS

LANUS

  • Lanus are coming off a 4-2 away win over Talleres in their last outing and that result extended their undefeated league run to eight games (W5, D3). They have 19 points and sit in third place in the standings but they could overtake Boca Juniors if they get the win here.
  • Tiago Pagnussat has not been training with the team due to personal reasons and is expected to miss this match while Lautaro Acosta continues to nurse an injury. The rest of the squad, however, should be available.

Expected Starting XI: Agustín Rossi; Leonel Di Plácido, Ezequiel Muñoz, Lautaro Valenti, Nicolás Pasquini; Marcelino Moreno, Facundo Quignón, Lucas Vera; Carlos Auzqui, José Sand, Alexandro Bernabei

BOCA JUNIORS

  • El Xeneize are coming off a 1-0 home defeat against Racing Club in their last match; that was their first league defeat in the entire season although they remain at the top of the standings with 21 points (W6, D3, L1). They also own the league’s best defence with only two goals conceded.
  • Boca Juniors won’t have many absences ahead of this encounter although three players have been listed as doubtful; these are Carlos Tévez, Ramon Ábila and Nicolás Capaldo. All three, however, should be fit enough for this contest.

Expected Starting XI: Esteban Andrada; Julio Buffarini, Lisandro López, Carlos Izquierdoz, Emanuel Más; Eduardo Salvio, Iván Marcone, Nicolás Capaldo (Agustín Almendra), Alexis Mac Allister; Mauro Zárate (Carlos Tévez), Jan Hurtado (Ramon Ábila)

THE PREDICTION

Boca Juniors might be coming off a loss but they have been extremely good all season long and should field their best XI here. Lanus, however, are no pushovers and have not lost since the second match of the season – on the road against River Plate. Expect this game between two title contenders to end in a draw.
