Mouth, moved by the controversy caused by the lack of professionalism of some footballers and in the run-up to the final of the Argentine Cup, he will seek this Saturday a triumph that gives you some peace of mind, when visit the bottom Arsenal, in Sarandí, in a match corresponding to the twenty-fourth date of the Professional League. The match will be played from 5 pm at the Julio Humberto Grondona stadium, with the arbitration of Néstor Pitana and the televising of Fox Sports Premium.

The cast of La Ribera lives a complicated present due to extra-football problems and poor performances on the playing field, which was reflected in the results: it comes from losing with Independiente in Avellaneda (0-1) and from drawing as a local of Newell’s (0-0).

Now, the team led by Sebastián Battaglia will try to change the image to achieve the long-awaited qualification for the next edition of the Copa Libertadores. To get that place in the international competition, the “xeneize” team has two chances ahead: the accumulated table, where it is one point behind the last one that qualifies for now, Students, or to win the Argentine Cup, which it will define next Wednesday with Workshops

So, if they beat Arsenal, they will make sure they are in the pre-group phase of the next Libertadores. As for the team to visit Arsenal, the captain, Carlos Izquierdoz, who had been sent off for a child action in the game with Rojo, will return, while Edwin Cardona and Sebastián Villa, two of those targeted due to the lack of sportsmanship and professionalism , they would be from the game.

The Colombian footballers, who played the last minutes with Newell’s and changed the face of an erratic team, would enter for Eduardo Salvio and Exequiel Zeballos, while Izquierdoz would do it for Lisandro López.

Three changes at Arsenal

The Viaducto team is going through a difficult time, as it is last in the LPF and comes from a tough defeat by a landslide against Central Córdoba (0-5). Thinking of Boca, the interim coach Darío “Cafú” Espínola would make at least three modifications, one per line: in defense Emiliano Papa would enter for Tadeo Rodríguez, in midfield Facundo Kruspzky would do the same for Brian Farioli and in attack Lucas Albertengo would replace to Alejo Antilef.

Workshops, with Boca in the spotlight

With his head set on the final of the Argentine Cup, Workshops will preserve some headlines in another of the matches of the day visit from the 19:15 (Nazareno Arasa arbitration and televising of Fox Sports Premium) to Sarmiento, in Junín, in a match corresponding to the twenty-fourth date of the Professional League.

The “T”, which comes from eliminating Godoy Cruz in the semifinal of the Argentine Cup, has the double objective of obtaining that contest, which he will define with Boca, and achieving qualification for the next edition of the Copa Libertadores. The place for the international competition can be obtained by obtaining the federal competition or by getting among the first three of the accumulated table of the LPF.

Although he is close to the latter, coach Alexander Medina will point to the clash with Boca and will give rest to some footballers. Without Diego Valoyes, suspended for accumulation of cautions, the players that could be preserved are Nahuel Tenaglia, Enzo Díaz, Michael Santos and Juan Ignacio Méndez.

While, on the side of Sarmiento, the interim DT Martín Funes, who has three games, of which he lost two and drew one, without being able to score goals, would repeat the line-up that comes from falling in the Nuevo Gasómetro with San Lorenzo (0 -1).

For recovery and points

Godoy Cruz will try from 19:15 at home in Mendoza (referee Sebastián Zunini; TNT Sports) leave behind the elimination of the Argentine Cup when he receives Platense in Mendoza. Tomba comes from thrashing the Board of Trustees in Paraná 3-0 in the Professional League, after which he was eliminated from the Argentine Cup by Talleres after falling 1-0 and lost the possibility of playing the final against Boca.

The coach Diego Flores gave no indication about the team that he will put to receive the Saavedra cast, but it is estimated that he would not make too many changes in relation to the team that played last date. For its part, Platense beat Huracán 4-2 at home and coach Claudio Spontón did not confirm the team either and could keep the same eleven that came out to play that match.

Racing wants to continue on a streak

In the meeting that will close the day on Saturday, Racing will seek a new victory under the command of Fernando Gago when he visits Hurricane, whose coach Fran Kudelka was left on the line after the 4-2 loss to Platense. The match will be played from 21:30 at the Tomás Adolfo Ducó stadium, with arbitration by Hernán Mastrángelo and TNT Sports televising.

Huracán has 45 points and the obligation to win to continue excited about entering the Copa Sudamericana, while Racing has 50 and is the last team that would qualify for the tournament with two dates remaining until the end of the tournament.

For its part, Racing beat Lanús at home 3-1 and coach Fernando Gago will not have Aníbal Moreno available, who will have to meet a suspension date for having reached the fifth yellow and Leonel Miranda would go in his place.

Lanús receives Central

Lanús, which still has a small chance of being able to access the Copa Libertadores, and Rosario Central, trying to qualify for the South American, they will meet in La Fortaleza from 21:30, with arbitration by Fernando Echenique and televised by the Public TV.

Lanús, who has just lost to Racing, has the second most defeated fence of the tournament and has already received the official notification from coach Luis Zubeldìa that he will not continue in office, has 55 units in the general table and is four behind Boca in the He fights to advance to the Libertadores and is the reason why he must add a victory and hope that the xeneizes do not win.
