Newell's Clasico 11

Just a brief note as Newell's expected line up for Sunday's Clasico Rosarino has been announced:

Sebastián Peratta
Agustín Alayes, Rolando Schiavi, Juan Insaurralde
Mauricio Sperduti, Diego Mateo, Lucas Bernardi, Leonel Vangioni
Mauro Formica
Cristián Núñez, Diego Torres

With both Mateo and Bernardi playing in midfield Central should find it difficult going while trying to attack. The back three are solid, though I'm a bit disappointed that Fideleff isn't starting after his fine match against Chacarita. Considering how well Sperduti, Núñez, and Torres worked with each other it's not surprising they're getting the nod.

Mauro Formica hasn't been the same player he was during the Apertura, and he may lost his form during the match against Los Canallas during the Apertura when he blew what appeared to be an easy chance for a game winner in what turned into a 2-2 draw. Hopefully he regains himself on Sunday and makes up for that miss by leading Newell's to victory.
