Professional Football League: San Lorenzo, urged, receives Tigre

San Lorenzo will try to end this Sunday a streak of 9 games without victories in the New Gasometer when they receive Tigre for the fifth date of the Professional Soccer League, from 13, with arbitration by Ariel Penel and live television by ESPN Premium.

Rubén Darío Insúa’s team needs to endorse at home the important win against Central Córdoba (2-0), achieved last Tuesday at the Estadio Único Madre de Ciudades in Santiago del Estero.

In the New Gasometer, San Lorenzo won for the last time on December 12, 2021 (3-2 vs. Newell’s Old Boys) and combined six draws with three losses in their appearances this year.

In addition to the accumulated casualties of Cristian Zapata, Néstor Ortigoza and Agustín Martegani, Insúa will have to add the injured Franco Perruzzi and Ezequiel Cerutti for this match. So the youthful Agustín Giay, Javier Mascherano’s Sub 20 footballer, and Iván Leguizamón, the great “azulgrana” hope that has been on the scoreboard for two consecutive dates, will enter.

Tigre, current runner-up in Argentine soccer, will seek recovery after two defeats in a row. Victoria’s team suffered a thrashing during their visit to Boca Juniors (3-5) and then received a blow from Banfield (0-1) at their Jose Dellagiovanna stadium.

DT Diego Martínez, like Insúa the previous date, made a strong decision with a change in goal. Manuel Roffo will enter for Gonzalo Marinelli, in one of the four changes along with Diego Sosa for Nicolas Demartini, Lucas Menossi for Sebastián Prediger and Ijiel Protti for Agustín Obando.

Racing seeks to recover

Racing Club, with opposite results inside and outside Avellaneda, will try to recover at home against Aldosivi from Mar del Plata, from 18 with arbitration by Fernando Echenique and broadcast by TNT Sports.

Fernando Gago’s team alternates victories at home with away defeats since the tournament began. This Sunday he will seek his third consecutive victory in the Cylinder after falling in La Plata against Gimnasia.

The present “academic” is notoriously far from the good pass in the previous championship, from which he left undefeated after falling on penalties against Boca Juniors in the semifinals. That classic marked a slump for the team, which was later eliminated from the Copa Sudamericana by the modest Racing de Uruguay and from the Copa Argentina by Agropecuario de Carlos Casares, from the First National.

With the intention of giving Racing a change, Gago will return to the 4-3-3 tactical module with the return of Tomás Chancalay by Chilean Eugenio Mena and the appearance of Emiliano Vecchio -for the first time as a starter- replacing Jonathan Gomez. A final variant will be given with the inclusion of the Uruguayan Fabricio Domínguez or the Colombian Johan Carbonero – brand new reinforcement – for the injured Paraguayan Matías Rojas.

Racing, with 6 points, will have as a rival the last one in the LPF, who comes from drawing with Platense after losing in a row against Argentinos Juniors, Estudiantes de La Plata and Patronato de Paraná. The team from Mar del Plata has had an interim coach since the start of the tournament due to the resignation of Martín Palermo in the preseason and awaits the assumption of its new manager, Leandro Somoza, who will debut in the next match against Rosario Central.

With calculator in hand

Platense, one of the undefeated teams in the Professional Football League (LPF), will be local against Sarmiento de Junín, with the average in their sights. The match will be played at the Vicente López stadium from 3:30 p.m., with refereeing by Silvio Trucco and broadcast by TNT Sports.

Platense, who was reinforced by several important names such as Mauro Zárate, has eight points and is one of the tournament’s entertainers, while Sarmiento (6 units) has as a pending account to add as a visitor after two defeats in that condition.

The match will be played with a calculator in hand, as both fight to remain in the top flight, with an identical average (1,125), product of 63 points over 56 games played.

In Platense, the coach, Omar De Felippe, will repeat to the same names that they brought a point from Mar del Plata against Aldosivi (0-0) and that in the end he had a doubtful play that ended in a free kick due to the intervention of the VAR after sanctioning a penalty for “Marrón”.

Sarmiento, meanwhile, would present a change of system with the entry of Julián Brea on the right side of the midfield for Federico Rasmussen and the departure of Manuel Guanini in the background for Federico Andueza, already recovered from the left ankle injury.

You want to continue with ideal score

Argentinos Juniors will be local this Sunday against Arsenal, with the intention of keeping their ideal score at La Paternal in the current Professional Football League (LPF). The match of the fifth date will be played from 8:30 p.m. with arbitration by Leandro Rey Hilfer and broadcast by ESPN Premium.

Gabriel Milito’s team (6), which will not have its striker Gabriel Ávalos (injured), needs to recover from the loss against Newell’s in Rosario, so they will seek their third consecutive victory at the Diego Maradona stadium.

In their two previous matches for this tournament, Argentinos beat Aldosivi de Mar del Plata and Independiente, both 2-1.

Arsenal, overwhelmed by the average for remaining in the First Division, will go for its first win after suffering a defeat and chaining three draws.

The league record records 9 victories for “Bicho”, 7 draws and 8 successes for the Viaducto team.
