New headache for Sebastián Beccacece in Racing: Mauricio Martínez suffered a meniscus injury, will undergo surgery and will miss the remainder of the year in the Professional League Cup and the series against Flamengo in the CONMEBOL Libertadores.
The La Academia midfielder, who can also serve as a central defender, was gaining consideration with the coach and had entered the matches against Atlético Tucumán – he marked the discount – and against Unión de Santa Fe.
José Amado reported in ESPN F90 what the player had discomfort during the past week and played 30 minutes against Tatengue, so the injury that he had that will end with admission to the operating room worsened. The mistake that was made with Marcelo Díaz is repeated, who will also have to undergo surgery.
This Tuesday Augusto Solari’s injury was also confirmed. The extensive list of casualties in recent times also includes: Nicolas Reniero (pubalgia), Alexis Soto (muscular discomfort), Marcelo Díaz (meniscal injury), Lorenzo Melgarejo (strain), Nery Domínguez (contracture), Jonatan Cristaldo (sprain of ankle) and Darío Cvitanich (strain).
Racing must face Flamengo for the first leg of the round of 16 of the CONMEBOL Libertadores next Tuesday, November 24 at the Cilindro de Avellaneda. The return will be on December 1 in Brazil.
