Banfield’s season was not good at all, and Javier Sanguinetti returned to take charge of a team that was struggling to find its way. Since then, in three games played, the team performance has been very inconsistent with loses, draws and wins.
Unlike Claudio Vivas, the former Banfield coach, he took drastic decisions in his first days as head of the team. He told Jesús Dátolo, Nicolás Domingo and Enrique Bologna, the most important players in the squad, that they would not be taken into account.
So, we are talking about a team under construction, coming into this match after a 0-0 draw at home against Sarmiento de Junín. For this match, the Buenos Aires team is expected to play the same starting 11 as last weekend.
Probable lineup: Facundo Sanguinetti; Mateo Pérez, Gregorio Tanco, Aaron Quiroz; Abel Amaya, Alan Di Pippa, Ignacio Rodríguez and Julián Eseiza; Maximiliano Cuadra; Juan Manuel Cruz, Amos Jeremías Perales.
Talleres de Cordoba Preview
Talleres is a different team since Javier Gandolfi took over as interim manager following the departure of Pedro Caixinha. Everyone was surprised that, while reaching the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores for the first time in its history, the team was placed in the last positions of the league. After the elimination, the Portuguese continued a few more games but ended up crossing the exit door.
Gandolfi as DT managed 13 games, of which he won 7, drew 3 and lost 3. The last one was against Gimnasia Esgrima La Plata, whom they defeated 2-1 at home. Now, they face Banfield, and there are rumors that Talleres coach could join the coaching staff of Martín Demichelis, who is being tipped by many to replace Marcelo Gallardo as River Plate’s manager.
Probable lineup: Guido Herrera; Julio Buffarini, Julián Malatini, Lucas Suárez and Ángelo Martino; Alan Franco Palma, Christian Oliva; Matías Godoy, Matías Esquivel and Leandro Salas; Gonzalo Álvez.
There is no doubt that this will be a vibrant match between Banfield and Talleres de Córdoba at the Coloso Marcelo Bielsa. Both have renewed coaching staffs that have given back confidence to their players. However, at JefeBet we believe that the victory will go to Talleres in regular time.
Prediction: Talleres wins 2 to 0.
