River is preparing for what will be its second game after the resumption of CONMEBOL Libertadores and, although it still has not recovered Milton Casco (it contracted Covid-19 and is still recovering), it already has Lucas Pratto among its ranks, who surpassed his injury and is available to add minutes against Binacional.
Pratto already has 96 games and is close to reaching a hundred presentations with the Millionaire shirt, a goal that he will try to achieve on his return to the squad list. Although he has 22 goals with those of Núñez, it should be noted that the “Bear” has not scored since May 30, 2019, when he celebrated against Athletico Paranaense for the Recopa Sudamericana.
For its part, Marcelo Gallardo’s team will try to add again by three against a rival that has already won, because in the first round of the CONMEBOL Libertadores group zone they won 8-0 in local condition before from the start of the pandemic.
It currently has four points in Group D, which it shares with San Pablo, Liga de Quito and the aforementioned Binational, which will not be local in its native Juliaca, because the area suffered an outbreak of coronavirus and CONMEBOL determined that the location of the Inca painting is in Lima.
The Millionaire will take the flight to Peru this Monday from 3:00 p.m., will make the trip by charter and will return to Argentina after the commitment to the Juliaca team.
The match will begin at 21.30 and, although it is not confirmed, River would repeat the eleven that obtained a point in his visit against San Pablo in Morumbí. Ie: Franco Armani; Gonzalo Montiel, Lucas Martínez Quarta, Javier Pinola, Fabrizio Angileri; Ignacio Fernández, Enzo Pérez, Nicolás De La Cruz; Julián Alvarez, Matías Suárez and Rafael Santos Borré.
Ready for another night of Libertadores! ☑️
