Huracan lost their openng game 3-1 against Independiente but I think they an get something out of this game with Newells. They have Abila back up front and he scored their goal in the first game and he got another from the penalty spot in a cup game against Colon. If he is in good scoring form then this Huracan team becomes much more difficult for other team to handle. I also think he and Coniglio up front make a really good partnership that will be difficult to stop.
Newells managed to salvage a draw against Union with a penalty from Guevgeozian to draw them level. He will miss this game so they lose a little of their scoring threat but Sarmiento will return for this game and he is probably their most important player going forward as he plays behind the striker in a playmaker role. When he's playing and on form then he will carve out chances for himself and others.
I think both sides will probably struggle this year so they are on somewhat of a level footing but I like both sides going forward and I think we could see at least three goals in this one. I expect Huracan to have just a little too much firepower in the end as they win by a 2-1 or 3-1 scoreline.
