The Xeneizes, on the other hand, arrive at this clash with their minds focused on next week's second leg of the Copa Libertadores last-16 against Atlético Mineiro. Miguel Angel Russo's side, however, will be expected to begin the Argentine league strongly.

Unión de Santa Fe will try to get off to a good start to their 2021 Liga Profesional journey against the B-team of Boca Juniors. The Tatengue have already beaten Russo's men in the previous league cup at home.
