Racing is looking at life after Reinaldo Merlo left this past week. These next few matches will also be the swansong for Rodrigo De Paul as he will be heading to Spain as of next season. Overall it's been a very disappointing campaign for both Academias as both expected to be much higher in the table.
This match will also see the debut of Fabio Radaelli as Racing coach. The Buenos Aires native is the seventh coach of the Avellaneda side since Diego Simeone left for Spain at the end of 2011. this would be Radaelli's second stint as interim coach at the club.
Meanwhile Rosario Central are looking for their first win since April 16th against Atlético Rafaela.
