Fortaleza and Estudiantes lineups
How Fortaleza and Estudiantes arrive for the game
Fortaleza arrives for the match with important absences. Tinga and Robson are still without conditions and Hercules must also not have been able to leave the medical department in time. Only the bulletin that the club will release an hour before the match will confirm the situation of the steering wheel, as well as whether there are players contaminated by Covid-19.
On the other hand, Zé Welison, who did not play against Galo, is again an option and Vovjoda can even play again with three defensive midfielders if he wants to. At the pre-game press conference, midfielder Lucas Lima commented on the match.
The La Plata team has maximum strength and coach Ricardo Zielisnki also listed the latest signings, with the exception of striker Pablo Piatti, who is recovering from knee surgery. Leonardo Heredia, Benjamín Rollheiser and Mateo Pellegrino, all attacking players, are options.
