El Globo had a great start to the season as it debuted with a 4-2 victory over Defensa y Justicia in Florencio Varela and on Wednesday advanced to the round of 16 of the Argentine Cup after beating Yupanqui 4-1 in Caseros.
Despite eight goals in two games, the team led by Diego Dabove had no peace since the defender and captain, Lucas Merolla, refused to renew the contract after his lost pass to Boca Juniors and would not be part of the game by decision of the leadership. His replacement would be Gastón Sauro.
Banfield, for its part, could not get past a goalless draw against Unión de Santa Fe, at home, and extended its streak of games without winning to four. In addition, the Drill suffered a new loss since Agustín Urzi, who was the starter on the first date, was transferred to Juárez, from Mexico. The departure of the left-handed midfielder is added to that of Ramiro Enrique, who was sold to Orlando City of the United States MLS.
To rearm the team, which will also not have the expelled Alejandro Cabrera, Javier Sanguinetti plans to make four variants. Eric Remedi would enter for Cabrera, Horacio Tijanovich would debut instead of Urzi and Matías Romero and Andrés Chávez would replace the Uruguayan brothers Nicolás and Sebastián Sosa Sánchez.
