The assumptions begin to be confirmed: River He would not risk his footballers even if he is a Super classic. The goal of the club is in the Copa Libertadores and the tight schedule would force Marcelo gallardo to use a completely alternative formation in the duel against Boca of the next Saturday.
At least, that conclusion follows after seeing the eleven headline that stopped the Doll in the last practice of River where he bet on several of the usual substitutes and many youth. Will they be the ones who will jump onto the playing field of the Candy box he Saturday from 9.30pm for the fourth date of the Diego Maradona Cup? Or was it a test that will change as the days go by?
Among the names that the coach stopped are experienced ones such as goalkeeper Enrique Bologna, midfielder Leonardo Pontius or the creative Nacho Fernandez, the only one of the usual headlines who broke into the surnames that the DT put on the court. Bruno was also there Zuculini (another with a lot of filming in the last time) and the side Jorge Moreira, who would have a chance again due to the injuries of Fabrizio Angileri (left hamstring tear) and Milton Helmet (left hamstring strain).
The defense would be completed with a list of guys with little filming: Elijah Lopez (20 years and 3 games in first), Augusto Aguirre (21 years and 2 games) and Santiago Sosa (21 years and 21 official matches), that although he is naturally a midfielder the Doll He used it as a kind of wild card during the last time because of its easy adaptation.
They could also have their big chance in the attack Lucas Beltran (19 years and 7 games), Federico Girotti (21 years and 7 games) and Benjamin Rollheiser (20 years and 10 games).
In this way, the probable formation for the commitment with Boca of the local tournament would be with: Enrique Bologna; Elijah López, Augusto Aguirre, Santiago bland, Jorge Moreira; Bruno Zuculini, Leonardo Pontius, Nacho Fernandez; Lucas Beltran, Federico Girotti and Benjamin Rollheiser.
This is a first screenshot of what runs through the technician’s head, since tomorrow December 31 they will return to training in the morning and the Friday, January 1, they will meet again in the afternoon shift.
This match will be key for both institutions: at a final date, Boca and River lead the Championship Zone A with seven units. It should be remembered that the leaders of each zone will access a final that will decree the champion and the owner of the ticket for the Copa Libertadores 2021.
However, the focus of River is completely set on what will happen the next Tuesday, January 5 from 9:30 p.m. at Monumental Stadium when I receive Palm Trees for the first leg of the first semifinal of the continental competition. A week later, on the 12th, he will travel to Brazil to close the tap also from 9:30 p.m..
