River Plate are a team noted for their defense so far in the 2011 Clausura, allowing only four goals while scoring just nine. However, their lineup looks like an entertaining and attacking one tonight, and they should be able to create chances against a Godoy Cruz side who has been just the opposite so far this year; potent offensively, but mediocre defensively.
River is playing an attack-minded 3-4-2-1 formation, with their most recognizable star players at the moment, Diego Buonanotte and Erik Lamela playing behind a central striker. Godoy Cruz appear to be playing a more orthodox (at least by the standards of the Anglo football world) 4-4-2 setup. River should be the better team in the middle, but the opportunity will be there for Godoy Cruz to exploit them down the flanks. Here are your lineups.
River Plate lineup (3-4-2-1): Carrizo; Maidana, Roman, Ferrero; Ferrari, Acevedo, Almeyda, Diaz; Lamela, Buonanotte; Pavonne
Godoy Cruz lineup (4-4-2): Torrico; Russo, Sigali, N. Sanchez, Garcia; C.A. Sanchez, Damonte, Falcon, Villar; Ramirez, Navarro
