The ‘Tucu’ is not a starter for Lionel Scaloni at the moment, but it is a more than attractive variant for the coach due to the versatility that the player can provide on the field.
This injury does not modify the eleven that the coach of the Argentine National Team has in his head, which he would form with: Franco Armani; Gonzalo Montiel, Lucas Martínez Quarta, Nicolás Otamendi, Nicolás Tagliafico; Rodrigo De Paul, Leandro Paredes, Exequiel Palacios; Lionel Messi, Lucas Ocampos and Lautaro Martínez.
Remember that Pereyra is on loan in Udinese from Watford. Although he was not in the first two dates of Serie A, then he became the undisputed starter for what is a more than sensitive loss for the team led by Luca Gotti.
