In an exciting Argentine Primera Division clash, Gimnasia is set to face Barracas Central at Estadio Juan Carmelo Zerillo on Wednesday night.

Both teams will be looking to secure crucial points in their pursuit of a successful season.

Team Form and Recent Performance

Gimnasia

Gimnasia, also known as El Lobo, started their 2024 season with a promising three-game unbeaten streak.

However, they faced their first defeat against Instituto on June 3. Despite the setback, Gimnasia's overall performance has been commendable, placing them sixth in the league standings.

They have shown resilience and determination, particularly under the guidance of their new manager, Marcelo Mendez.

Barracas Central

Barracas Central, on the other hand, has had a challenging start to the season.

The team suffered back-to-back defeats, first against Union and then Huracan, both by a 2-0 scoreline.

Currently, they sit in 21st place, struggling to find consistency and form. Their main issue has been a lack of firepower upfront, having scored only two goals in five league matches.

Team News and Lineups

Gimnasia

Gimnasia will be without striker Ivo Mammini, who is sidelined with a cruciate ligament injury. Defensive adjustments might be on the cards after conceding twice in their last match.

Expected to start are Leonardo Morales and Yonathan Cabral at centre-back, with Matias Abaldo, who has been in excellent form, leading the attack.

Possible Starting XI: Insfran, Pintado, Morales, Cabral, Colazo, Castro, Saravia, De Blasis, Dominguez, Castillo, Abaldo

Barracas Central

Barracas Central will also miss a key player due to injury, with Lucas Lopez out with a cruciate ligament injury. Maximiliano Puig might return to the squad after recovering from a tendon issue.

Possible Starting XI: Moyano, Mater, Capraro, Goni, Insua, Herrera, Arce, Candia, Cantero, Zalazar, Aguirre

Prediction

Considering their home advantage and better start to the season, Gimnasia is favoured to win this encounter.

Barracas Central’s struggle to score goals, especially away from home, makes it a challenging task for them to overcome Gimnasia.
