Gimnasia looks for their first road victory vs Barracas

Barracas Central will have to face Gimnasia, who is currently hungry for a road victory where they last won in the middle of August. Gimnasia is currently fifth in the Argentine Liga Pro. However, because of their poor run recently, they are slowly losing their chances in the finals. If they want to retain their position in the league, they start to gather more wins and they will start in this match. On the other hand, the hosts are currently 19th in the standings, which is way lower than their opponent. However, although they have no chance in the finals, they are currently playing a good football. Since they are currently playing well, the momentum is with this squad.

From their last six matches, Gimnasia scored seven points, but they are currently in a two-match losing streak. From their last six games, they only scored five goals where they conceded five times in those last six games. Despite being unlucky, this squad still managed to have an automatic berth for the Copa Libertadores. Their opponent, Barracas, are actually unbeaten in six consecutive matches in the tournament. They are currently in a good form after they took 10 points from their last six matches. They won their last four matches at their home turf.

Barracas might encounter problems as they start the second phase of this league as they lost their five opening matches. Since then, their manager did everything just so he could bring out the best of his players. They turned the tables around and finally starts to be on the winning side. But during their opening fixtures, they lost to Velez Sarsfield, which ended their three-match unbeaten streak. They need to win their remaining games so they could secure a spot for the Copa Sudamericana group stage.

Bruno Sepulveda is expected to lead his team in this match, just like how he lead his squad in their last home fixture. Ivan Tapia is also expected to produce for his squad as he is the second in their team when it comes to goals and assists. Unfortunately, Brian Calderara might not be available because of his issue in his thigh.

Defense has always been the battle when facing Gimnasia because it is where they are at best. However, despite their tight defense, they still suffered a 1-0 loss for athe second successive encounter. That defeat is their first home loss in the competition. Luckily, the members of this squad are doing a great job in defending against their opponents during possessions. Coming into this match, what this squad needs to do is to be consistent defensively to be able to stop their opponents.

Brahian Aleman is the one who leads the squad in goals and assists so for this match, he is the one who is most expected to produce numbers. Rodrigo Rey is also expected to make magic for Gimnasia. German Guiffrey on the other hand s already out of the season because of his shoulder injury.
