River will visit Boca next Sunday from 2 p.m. for the seventh date of the League Cup. The Greatest is going for three fundamental points to remain in the qualifying zone for the quarterfinals of the competition and also to leave behind the negative streak without victories as a visitor. There is no better setting to achieve this than in a superclassic and Demichelis knows it.
During the last few days, the coach carried out some tests in training ahead of the superclassic. Fundamentally, the changes appeared in the defense, the sector that undoubtedly generates the most doubts for the coach and the one that is performing the worst. It is no coincidence that the Greatest is the team with the most goals scored in the competition and also one of the teams that conceded the most goals.
Everything indicates that Demichelis was not convinced by what Santiago Simón did on the right wing, a position that is not natural at all for the very good midfielder. Although the coach had said that he was satisfied, in these days’ practices he tried both Milton Casco and Andrés Herrera in that position. On the other hand, Ramiro Funes Mori would also leave the team and his place would be occupied by Leandro González Pirez. Enzo Díaz would play on the left, in this way Milton Casco would remain on the bench, who can play both on the right and the left.
The team that Demichelis stopped in practice
The eleven that played together in practice this Friday were: Franco Armani; Andrew Herrera, Leandro Gonzalez, Paulo Diaz, Enzo Diaz; Enzo Perez, Nicholas De La Cruz, Nacho Fernandez, Manuel Lanzini, Esequiel Ship; Michael Angel Borja. If this team is confirmed, Nacho Fernández would beat Rodrigo Aliendro, who recently returned from an injury that kept him off the field for a few weeks.
