Initial time: domingo 23:00 CET - 19:00 ART (-3 GMT) [17-01-2021]
Tip: Instituto (Córdoba) to win
Both teams are in opposite ends of the table. So, I’ll back the team that is near the top.
- Comunicaciones are in the eighteen position (third to last). They only won 6 games and lost 14.
- They lost their last 5 games (2 of them this week, against the ninth and the seventeenth).
- One of their “foreign”, Austin Williams, has COVID-19 and he was replaced by Omar Cantón. In his first game, he signed 6 points, 1 rebound, and 1 assist in 20 minutes.
- In their last match, their captain Junior Cequeira was injured. Juan Pablo Cantero will be his replacement for 45 days, but he is in doubt today.
- Instituto are in the fourth position, fighting to enter in the Super 4 finals.
- They won 14 matches and lost 6.
- They remained unbeaten in their last 4 games.
- Instituto made 3 changes in their 2020’s squad but they debuted very well o Thursday:
o Ronald Jackson Jr.: 12 points, 3 rebounds, and 1 assist in 20 minutes.
o Stedmon Lemon: 15 points, 3 rebounds, and 1 assist in 30 minutes.
o Juan Brussino: 9 points, 6 rebounds y 6 assists in 25 minutes.
