Michael Hoyos will hope to continue to grab minutes for Estudiantes' first team against Huracan on Monday after starting for the first time in the first division last week.

Estudiantes desperately needs to win and play well after disappointingly losing at Independiente on the road last week and then shockingly being run out of the stadium against Peruvian club Alianza Lima on Thursday in the Copa Libertadores.

Both Huracan and Estudiantes find themselves in the middle of the pack in the Clausura table, but despite the fact that the season is in its infancy, neither team can afford to lose contact with the leaders.

On paper Estudiantes is the stronger team, but the two teams have split their last two meetings and tied the previous three, so a tight match is to be expected on Monday in Dr. Jose Luis Meizner stadium.
