Defense and Justice receives Arsenal, an old acquaintance

This interzonal match will be played from 1:30 pm at the Norberto “Tito” Tomaghello stadium of Florencio Varela, with refereeing by Andrés Gariano and live broadcast by Fox Sports Premium.

The present finds them in a very different way compared to their first clashes for the First C (1985) and the National B (1992-2002). Defense is the current champion of the South American Cup and the Recopa and Arsenal was the protagonist of the highest category in the last two decades, with a harvest of four titles (two local and two international).

Both come to face their respective cup debuts this week: Defensa pocketed a valuable point in their visit to Independiente del Valle de Ecuador for the Libertadores and Arsenal met Bolívar in La Paz, Bolivia, for the Sudamericana.

The Halcón de Varela, which is in its best historical moment, occupies seventh place in Zone 2 of the LPF Cup with 12 points and still has expectations of qualifying in the top four to advance to the knockout round. Four points separate it from Talleres de Córdoba, which currently ranks fourth. But to stay in the race, he has no alternative but to win.

Beyond that, his coach, Sebastián Beccacece, announced that he could make variations and reserve players for the Cup. “On Wednesday we made a significant wear and tear. We are going to take until the last minute to define the team,” said the coach at a press conference .

Arsenal, on the other hand, is already practically out of the competition, as it could only advance from the phase by beating in all the games that remain and waiting for a multiple combination of other results.

In the First Division they played eight times, with a balance of three victories for Arsenal, four for Defense and one draw.


Defense and Justice: Ezequiel Unsaín; Emanuel Brítez, Fernando Meza, Adonis Frías and Marcelo Benítez; Enzo Fernández and Raúl Loaiza; Francisco Pizzini, Walter Bou and Carlos Rotondi; Braian Romero. DT: Sebastián Beccacece.
