This situation causes Zárate is not available for the closing of the group stage of CONMEBOL Libertadores, on Thursday 22 against Caracas and misses the start of the local tournament, which begins on October 30.
The striker has a history of injuries in the last half that left him almost without continuity in 2020 and only playing a couple of games in the era of Miguel Ángel Russo.
The friendly against Arsenal served to add minutes on the court, but this muscle injury takes him further away from the continuity that the player wants.
