    Atletico Tucuman will host Independiente in the Copa Argentina round of 32 on Friday. The two sides are just two wins away from reaching the final of the Copa Argentina.

    While Atletico Tucuman and Independiente are in the round of 32 in the Copa Argentina, the sides are just four games into the Liga Pro season. Atletico Tucuman have started the season well in both the league and cup.

    Independiente have also started the campaign well. The visitors reached the Copa Argentina round of 32 courtesy of penalty shootout win versus Central Norte. The fixture ended 1-1 at the end of full-time with Independiente claiming a 4-3 shootout win.

    Atletico Tucuman reached the round of 32 thanks to a 2-0 win against Brown. Matias Orihuela scored on 42 minutes to put Atletico Tucuman into the lead. Leonardo Heredia added a second in the 78th minute.

    These teams met twice last season in league and cup matches. Atletico Tucuman tallied wins in both games by a count of 3-0. Tucuman have a slight edge in the last six games versus Independiente with a record of 3W-1D-2L.

    Manager Juan Manuel Azconzábal could be without three players for the round of 32 clash with Independiente. Defender Marcelo Ortiz is a doubt due to virus. Midfielder Ramiro Cristobal has a muscle injury which could keep him out of action.

    Defender Agustin Lagos is ruled out until July with an ACL injury. Atletico Tucuman are led in goals by Ramiro Carrera with just two in the Liga Pro.

    Independiente manager Eduardo Domínguez will be without midfielder Tomas Pozzo due to an ankle injury. Dominguez will likely start forward Leandro Benegas. The forward has three goals in Liga Pro this season.

    Atletico Tucuman head into the game on Friday following a nil-nil draw with Huracan. Tucuman have struggled for goals in Liga Pro this season with just three scores. They have allowed two goals to opponents in the league and zero in the cup.

    Independiente are coming off of a 2-1 win against Estudiantes. Like Atletico Tucuman, they have struggled for goals this season in the Pro Liga. Just five have been scored in four league games and one in the Copa Argentina. They have conceded four times in the league.

    Atletico Tucuman have played well against Independiente in head-to-head games. Tucuman should post a third straight win against Independiente with a final score of 2-1.
