Professional League: Wednesday reloaded with football

Wednesday comes loaded with football: In addition to Platense-Boca, the highlight of the second day with the second challenge of Sebastián Battaglia in command of the xeneize team, another four games will populate the day of the Professional Football League. There will be action early: at 2:15 p.m., Rosario Central-Arsenal (broadcasts Fox Sports Premium); at 4:30 p.m., Defense and Justice-Newell’s (Public TV and ESPN) and Lanús-Gymnastics and Fencing La Plata (Fox Sports Premium); at 6:45 p.m., Hurricane-Vélez (TNT Sports).

The first match will face the two teams that are shipwrecked at the bottom of the table after the first seven dates of the contest: Rosario Central, located in the last place, and Arsenal de Sarandí, which is next to last. The Rosario team has just four points in the local tournament -which he neglected due to his participation in the South American Cup, where he reached the quarterfinals- and, after drawing on Sunday in the classic with Newell’s in Independence Park, he wants to get out of last place as soon as possible. The situation of the Viaduct is not the best either: with just one more unit, they come from being thrashed by Racing (3-0) in the debut of their coach Israel Damonte, who replaced Sergio Rondina in office.

Lanús is the only one who animates the day that is on with the platoon of those from above, where evidently Boca has not even managed to climb. Luis Zubeldia’s set (13 units) is quite a contradiction: is the highest scoring team in the tournament (with 14 goals, seven from veteran José Sand), but at the same time it is the most vulnerable defense of the LPF and with such a weakness (13 goals conceded; 1.85 per game) it becomes difficult to be the protagonist of the fight for the title. Gimnasia, 13th with nine units and a streak of 10 games without victories as a visitor, arrives at the Fortaleza seeking to leave behind its irregular start and relying on the good performance of last Sunday, when it drew 1-1 at home against Marcelo Gallardo’s River .

At the same time of the crash in Lanús, 16.30, Defense and Justice will receive Newell’s in Florencio Varela, in a match that receives both with the same objective: to return to the triumph. The two teams come to tie on the last date: the Halcón (8 points) added a point in Avellaneda against the Independiente leader (0-0), while the rosarino cast (11) equaled Central (1-1) in the classic disputed in the Coloso Marcelo Bielsa.

Finally, at 18.45 will face two that had a poor start in the Professional Football League tournament: Velez and Hurricane. The team led by Mauricio Pellegrino, however, achieved the last date a victory that was urgent, its first in the tournament, with a win over Lanús, whom they beat 3-0. The Globe, on the other hand, adds six dates without winning and is pressed by the numbers: those driven by Frank Kudelka show the worst average in the table for the descent, in addition to being the team with the fewest wins (it only has three) in the accumulated classification that counts to get into the international cups.
