Patronato vs San Lorenzo
Patronato six-match unbeaten run of two victories and four draws in the Superliga came to an end last Saturday when the side lost 2-0 away at Defensa y Justicia. Therefore, El Patron continues occupying one of the relegation spots, having accumulated 23 points this term. Patronato hasn’t lost any of their last three matches at Presbitero Grella Stadium, earning seven points from nine available. Patronato defensive midfielder Dardo Miloc reached the yellow-card limit at Defensa y Justicia and is suspended.
San Lorenzo returned to one of the Copa Sudamericana places following their 4-3 home triumph over Lanus in a thrilling game. The team managed two wins in a row under the tutelage of interim bosses Leandro Romagnoli and Hugo Tocalli to climb into the eighth spot on 36 points. On away turf, El Ciclon performed an irregular campaign, with five wins, one draw and five losses. San Lorenzo right back Marcelo Herrera collected his fifth yellow card against Lanus and is suspended. Striker Adolfo Gaich returns after missing the last game due to his ankle problem.
Patronato is desperate for points because they are in the relegation places, while San Lorenzo has one of the worst defenses in the league but a very strong attack, especially with Adolfo Gaich back in the lineup, so I have to expect at least a couple of goals here.
