Banfield preview: Looking for their first win in the league

After a solid season in Copa de la Liga Profesional, in which they failed to reach the playoffs but finished in the middle of the standings in their group, Banfield have started Primera Division on a bad run and only managed to win one point in the first three rounds. On the bright side, they did notch a win over Independiente Rivadavia in the Argentine Cup.

Meanwhile, Franco Quinteros, Ezequiel Bonifacio, Lucas Palavecino, Geronimo Rivera, Alejandro Cabrera, and Alexis Maldonado are on Banfield's injury list at the moment.

Predicted lineup: Sanguinetti – Insua, Quiros, Perez, Cardozo – Rodriguez, Galvan, Morales, Alvarez – Gonzalez, Gimenez

Newell's Old Boys preview: In good form and looking for more

With two wins in the first three rounds of Primera Division, Newell's have started the new season very well and they can get to the third place in the standings with a win over Banfield. Newell's Old Boys have also managed to eliminate Deportivo Riestra in Copa Argentina, so their fans can be very pleased with the team's form at the moment.

Another positive for the team is their clean bill of health.

Predicted lineup: Hoyos – Schott, Velazquez, Glavinovich, Martino – Cacciabue, Fernandez, Banega – Gonzalez, Ramirez, Aguirre

Player to watch: Juan Ignacio Ramirez

With eight goals in Copa de la Liga Profesional, Ramirez was the top scorer for Newell's. However, he has yet to score in Primera Division and we wouldn't be surprised if that happens against Banfield.

Can Ramirez score first?

Four of the eight goals that Ramirez has scored in Copa de la Liga Profesional were the first goal of the respective matches. Will we see him do the same in this game?
