Estudiantes are looking to maintain their position among the title contenders, while Sarmiento aims to build on their recent victory and avoid relegation.

Sarmiento's Current Form

Sarmiento secured a crucial 1-0 victory against San Lorenzo in their last outing, which was their first win since March.

They currently sit fourth in the overall table, just two points shy of the league leaders.

They have a solid record of protecting leads, having won nine times when scoring the opening goal this season.

Key Players

Zaid Romero: Scored a late equalizer against Godoy Cruz.

Javier Altamirano: Doubtful due to a head injury.

Guido Carrillo: Nursing a thigh injury.

Santiago Ascacibar and Eric Meza: Both dealing with minor knocks.
