The complete fixture
Cordón, who will be led by Álvaro Ponce, put together one of the strongest teams to go for a promotion that has resisted him in recent years.
Ignacio Xavier, from the top league in Goes, and Lucas Capalbo, Malvín point guard, will have as partners two Argentines who have just played in the Argentine League: Fabián Ramírez and Eduardo Vasirani.
Ignacio Xavier, figure to follow in Cordón
Capitol opted for Gonzalo Fernández who after going down with Olivol was hired again by Nacional for the next League.
Sayago will have Nicolás Díaz as DT and bet heavily on the Argentine Agustín Caffaro as an unnamed player. The former San Lorenzo was already promoted with Urupan in 2020. With Germán Silvarrey, Mateo Dogliotti, Nahuel Lemos and Joaquín Jones those of Ariel and the road will fight.
