Juan Pablo Carrizo;
Two of our normal starters will be missing: youngers Diego Buonanotte is still not inscribed in the Copa Sudamericana squad list, while right-wing Augusto Fernandez is currently injured and will be out for weeks. Buonanotte will once again be replaced by Mauro Rosales, who had played well in the first leg of the series. Meanwhile, Belluschi will be moving to Fernandez's spot, leaving Matias Abelairas in charge of the left side.
The following results will grant River the qualification:
- Any win in our favor.
- A 0-0 tie.
- A 1-1 tie.
The following results will grant Defensor Sporting the qualification:
- Any win in their favor.
- A 3-3 tie or above (i.e. - 4-4, 5-5, 6-6, etc.)
If the final match result is 2-2, the game will then proceed to penalty kicks to determine a winner.
