Marcelo Gallardo would choose to maintain his 4-3-3 scheme in River, with Santiago Sosa as the first central marker, in the absence of Gonzalo Montiel, summoned by the Argentine National Team for the double date of CONMEBOL Qualifiers.
In the week, the millionaire DT did several tests, with Enzo Pérez as central and change to a 5-3-2 drawing with Sosa and Pérez on defense. However, the River specialist from SportsCenter Javier Gil Navarro anticipated that the Doll would prefer not to innovate when visiting Mendoza.
In this way, the defense would be with Milton Casco, Santi Sosa, Javier Pinola and Fabrizio Angileri. In the midfield, Jorge Carrascal would enter, due to the absence of Nico De La Cruz, along with Pérez and Ponzio. The forward, with the loss of Rafa Borré with Covid-19, will be Julián Álvarez, Lucas Pratto and Matías Suárez.
Why, instead of moving the equipment around so much, does Gallardo not use Jorge Moreira? According to information from Gil Navarro, the Paraguayan defender they don’t see it well physically.
In this way, the formation would be: Enrique Bologna (for Franco Armani in the Selection); Casco, Sosa, Pinola and Angileri; Jorge Carrascal, Enzo Pérez and Leo Ponzio; Julián Álvarez, Pratto and Suárez.
The millionaire team traveled this Friday at 7:00 p.m. on a charter flight and River will visit Godoy Cruz in Mendoza, this Saturday, for the third date of the Professional League Cup.
