Preview: Central Cordoba vs. Talleres – prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday’s Argentine Primera Division clash between Central Cordoba and Talleres, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Round four of the 2024 Argentine Primera Division season sees Central Cordoba and Talleres go head to head at Santiago del Estero on Sunday.

Off the back of respective defeats in their most recent outings, the teams will head into this weekend’s encounter keen to get back to winning ways.

Match preview

Central Cordoba came away empty-handed from a third straight game as they fell to a 2-1 defeat against Belgrano at Estadio Julio Cesar Villagra on Sunday.

Lucas Gonzalez‘s men got their noses in front just before half time thanks to Tomas Molina‘s penalty before a second-half double from Bryan Reyna turned the game around.

Consequently, El Ferroviario remain rooted to the bottom of the Argentine Primera Division table following a poor start to the season which has seen them fail to pick up a single point.

Next up is the challenge of an opposing outfit with little to choose between the teams over the last six meetings which have yielded two wins apiece and two draws.

Having won one of six home matches leading up to Sunday’s contest, the hosts will be keen to pick up the pace in front of their fans as they look to reignite their league campaign.

Talleres rounded off their Copa Libertadores group-stage phase with a 2-0 defeat against Sao Paulo at Estadio Do Morumbi on Thursday morning.

Walter Ribonetto‘s men went into the interval trailing to Lucas Moura‘s stoppage-time penalty before Luciano made sure of the result in the final minute of regulation time.

Prior to that, La Albiazul played out a goalless stalemate against Boca Juniors and currently sit third in the standings, albeit level on points with leaders Racing Club.

Fresh from seeing their eight-game unbeaten streak on the road end last time out, Sunday’s visitors head out to avoid consecutive defeats on the road for the first time since October.

Team News

Central Cordoba’s Lautaro Montoya has not featured since early February through injury and the defender will miss Sunday’s clash as well.

Matias Godoy was forced off with an injury scare in the first half of the hosts’ defeat last time out, making him a doubt for this weekend.

Eighteen-year-old Matias Gomez still awaits his first appearance of 2024 for Talleres as he continues to nurse a long-term knee problem.

Chile international Bruno Barticciotto was handed a rare start against Sao Paulo but is expected to return to the visitors’ bench here.

Central Cordoba possible starting lineup:
Ingolotti; Laquidain, Miloc, Valdez; Sanabria, Atencio, Vazquez, Garrido; W.Montoya, Cansinos, Molina

Talleres possible starting lineup:
Herrera; Navarro, Suarez, Portillo, Benavidez; Portillo, Ortegoza, Botta; Sosa, Girotti, Depietri

We say: Central Cordoba 1-2 Talleres

Central Cordoba have let in the most goals this term and Talleres will be aiming to exploit their hosts’ defensive vulnerability. We are backing the away side to emerge triumphant in the end.
