After confirming the withdrawal of Nacho Fernández due to injury, Marcelo Gallardo would choose not to make too many changes in River and would replace 10 with Santiago Sosa.
El Millonario fell 3-1 to Banfield on Tuesday in his debut for the Professional League Cup and, in addition to the disappointment of being outmatched by the rival, he was left without some of his key pieces.
Nacho will be out of action between 17 and 20 days, which would arrive with just time for the first match of the round of 16 of the CONMEBOL Libertadores Cup against Athletico Paranense, which will be held on November 24 in Brazil.
River has not yet undergone a new formal training, but the specialist SportsCenter, Javier Gil Navarro, announced that Santiago Sosa will be the one to replace Fernández until he recovers, because the antecedents put him as the natural substitute and, in addition, Gallardo does not usually make too many changes after a defeat and thus he would maintain the scheme.
Colombian Jorge Carrascal could be an alternative, but his entry would already imply modifying the proposal.
River will not be able to count, in principle, with Nacho Fernández, next Saturday against Rosario Central, on the Independiente court, nor against Godoy Cruz in Mendoza, the following weekend, for the local championship.
