Unión de Santa Fe, seriously committed to relegation, will visit this Sunday to Belgrano de Córdobaone of the best teams in the tournament, in a match on date 13 of the Professional League Cup that will be key to fueling their hope of maintaining the category.

The match, valid for Zone B, will be played this Sunday from 7 p.m. on the Belgrano court, located in the Alberdi neighborhood of Córdoba, it will be refereed by Ariel Penel and televised by ESPN Premium.

The Santa Fe team led by Cristian “Kily” González has 43 points in the accumulated annual table, one more than its classic rival Colón, which is in the relegation zone, so it depends on itself and if it wins the two games it They are missing (the other is against Tigre) they will maintain the category.

To define the team that will visit Córdoba, the “tatengue” coach had to wait for the evolution of two injuries: Claudio Corvalán played undercover against the “garnet” due to ankle pain, while Federico Vera comes with a muscular overload.

In both cases they will arrive without problems and will be part of the game, so Unión will not have any modifications in the game against the “pirates.”

Its rival, Belgrano, is third with 18 points in Zone B led by Godoy Cruz (21) and has aspirations of qualifying for the quarterfinals, although its performance has dropped to the point where it has a series of one draw and two consecutive defeats.

In Belgrano, the injuries of defenders Erik Godoy and Nicolás Meriano were confirmed, so they cannot be taken into account by coach Guillermo Farré.

Although neither of them were in the game last Monday when the ‘Pirate’ fell to Tigre (3-0) in their stadium, so DT Farré could maintain the same initial formation.

The one that resonates the most is the absence of Godoy, a regular starter but who missed the match against ‘Matador’ due to being suspended, and was a permanent fixture to return to the team.

The history between the two is 23 games and favors the Cordoba team, who won 11 times against the Santa Fe team 3, while they tied 9 times.
