With the casualties of Nahuel Barrios and Agustín Giay, expelled against Huracán, and the return of defender Gonzalo Luján, the variant that DT Insúa would handle is the entry of Agustin Martegani by Ezequiel Ceruttione of the weakest of the team in these six dates in which he leads the competition, or by Carlos Sánchez.

DT Sebastián Romero will not have defender Matías Mellusowho suffers from a muscle strain, and His replacement will be Matías Bazzi, 22 years old and with 15 minutes in the first division.
