With three games, the 7th date of the Professional League championship will start this Thursday: From 5:00 p.m. and with ESPN Premium television, Barracas Central will receive Independiente in his small stadium on Olavarría and Luna as At 9:00 p.m. there will be two games: Argentinos Juniors-Arsenal (TNT Sports) and Instituto-Atlético Tucumán (TV Pública and ESPN Premium).
Independiente has only won once so far in the tournament: on the first date at Talleres in Córdoba. Later, they produced two home losses and three consecutive draws, the last one against Instituto after winning 2-0 in the first half hour of play. Coach Leandro Stillitano was not satisfied with what the team did against Cordoba, so he will make several changes: Joaquín Laso will be replaced by Patricio Ostachuk as right back, while in midfield Iván Marcone, with groin pain, will be replaced by Sergio Ortiz and Agustín Mulet will be replaced by Mateo Barcia. If Independiente continues without adding three, Stillitano’s continuity can enter a risk zone.
For its part, Barracas Central has just lost 1-0 to Newell’s in Rosario, has 7 points and His technician Rodolfo De Paoli will make two changes: Maximiliano Rodríguez for Agustín Dattola in defense and Marcos Benítez for Brian Calderara in midfield.
Toned by his reaction in Avellaneda after losing 2-0, The Institute will receive the Tucumans without changes at its Alta Córdoba stadium that on Saturday they beat Banfield 1-0 in their first match in the tournament and they will also keep the team. At the same time in La Paternal, the irregular Argentines that last Sunday beat Tigre 1-0 in Victoria, will face the limited Arsenal that on Monday lost 1-0 with Belgrano in Sarandí and last in the table of averages, if it does not recover, it is in serious danger of being relegated.
