Preview: Lanus vs. Colon - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Argentine Primera Division clash between Lanus and Colon, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Lanus will entertain the challenge of Colon at the Estadio Ciudad de Lanus on Sunday in matchday four of the 2022 Argentine Primera Division.

The sides head into this one off the back of contrasting results last time out, but the game promises to be an exciting one nonetheless.


Match preview

Lanus still await their first win of the new campaign after they were beaten 2-1 by Atletico Tucuman at the Estadio Monumental Jose Fierro on Wednesday.

Jorge Almiron's men opened the scoring 11 minutes shy of the interval through Lucas Varaldo before a second-half brace from Ramiro Carrera turned the game on its head.

With two points from three matches so far, El Granate currently sit bottom but three in the league table and will need to get their season up and running as soon as possible.

Next up is a clash versus an opposing side who they have beaten in four of the most recent five encounters between the teams dating back to 2018.

Ahead of a daunting assignment against River Plate one week later, Sunday's hosts will be looking to record a morale-boosting victory this weekend.

Colon picked up their first three points of the new season following a 1-0 victory against River Plate on Wednesday at the Estadio Brigadier General Estanislao Lopez.

Julio Cesar Falcioni's men broke the deadlock in the 74th minute courtesy of Ramon Abila's opener, and that was enough to get the job done in Santa Fe.

As a result, the Tarpon Fishers have moved up into eighth place in the standings and are now just two points shy of Estudiantes at the top of the pile.

However, Sunday's visitors continue to struggle away from home as they have failed to win any of their last nine games on the road since February 23.

Team News

Mateo Sanabria is a guaranteed absentee for Lanus as he is currently on international duty with the Argentina Under-19s.

Pedro de la Vega and Alexandro Bernabei are both sidelined through injury and are also unavailable for the home side.

Forty-one-year-old Jose Sand could make his return to action this weekend having missed the last two games with a hamstring problem.

Despite failing to extend his goalscoring streak to four games last time out, Colon's Facundo Farias remains one to keep an eye on.

Paolo Goltz and Cristian Vega will not play any part for the away side in this one as they continue to nurse muscle and knee injuries respectively.

Lanus possible starting lineup:
Monetti; Pasquini, Cabral, Perez, Di Placido; Malcorra, Belmonte, Aguirre; Acosta, Varaldo, Gonzalez

Colon possible starting lineup:
Burian; Meza, Acevedo, Novillo, Teuten; Lertora, Aliendro, Bernardi; Farias, Pierotti, Abila


SM words green background

We say: Lanus 1-1 Colon

While Colon are the more in-form side coming into the game, their struggles on the road make it difficult to fancy them to claim all three points, and consequently, we are backing a share of the spoils come the end of the 90 minutes.
