Preview: Godoy Cruz vs. San Lorenzo - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Saturday's Argentine Primera Division clash between Godoy Cruz and San Lorenzo, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Two teams in the bottom half of the Argentine Primera Division second phase will meet on Saturday as each looks to secure their first win of this section.

San Lorenzo will be making the trip to face Godoy Cruz in a game that both teams need to turn into a positive result.


Match preview

After four games without a win, Godoy Cruz will attempt to change their fortunes on Saturday when they host San Lorenzo.

It has been a difficult period for the hosts, particularly in front of goal as they have only managed to score once across their past four fixtures which has been their biggest issue.

Godoy Cruz did secure a point during their most recent outing against Independiente Rivadavia following a goalless draw, and the defensive aspect of that game will have provided a confidence boost.

However, the need to get back to winning ways is clear, especially since one victory could see them leapfrog their opponents and climb into the top half of the table.

During the first phase of the competition Godoy Cruz proved themselves to be one of the strongest teams regarding home fixtures, and continuing that form will be crucial.

In the same opening phase, the visitors failed to win a single match away from home which was a major problem for them and is something that they have to address in the second phase.

Whether or not San Lorenzo can make that happen this weekend remains to be seen, as they also lost their first match on the road in this section of the Argentine Primera Division.

Leandro Romagnoli's men did manage to pick up a point during their most recent outing, though, which should have added a little confidence to the team.

Cristian Ferreira scored the crucial equaliser in the 66th minute of the game against Lanus, and that has allowed them to climb into 19th in the division.

However, San Lorenzo did suffer a 1-0 loss the last time they faced Godoy Cruz, and that is a result they will be eager to avenge this time around.

The back four for Godoy Cruz is unlikely to be tampered with heading into this weekend after keeping a clean sheet in their most recent outfit.

However, after a lack of goals as of late there could be some tinkering at the other end of the field with Martin Pino being an option to come into the team.

The visitors are missing Gaston Hernandez and Manuel Insaurralde due to ACL injuries at the moment, which has been a blow for the team.

Facundo Altamirano is another injury issue that San Lorenzo are having to cope with as he is suffering from a hamstring strain.


Godoy Cruz possible starting lineup:
Petroli; Arce, Barrios, Rasmussen, Galdames; Poggi, Leyes Sosa, Fernandez; Cejas, Pino, Conechny

San Lorenzo possible starting lineup:
Gomez; Lujan, Romana, Sanchez, Hernandez, Baez; Medina, Perruzzi, Tapia; Herazo, Bareiro



SM words green background

We say: Godoy Cruz 2-1 San Lorenzo

Neither team heads into this weekend with much momentum or confidence due to their poor runs, but that could lead to each believing this is the perfect match to change their fortunes.

Godoy Cruz were a much stronger outfit within the first phase of the competition and that should lead to them being the slight favourites here.
