Good news for River: Nacho Fernández was able to participate this Wednesday in the reduced soccer practice, already recovered from a lumbalgito. However, this does not mean that the ex-Gymnastics LP will return to the starting team against Arsenal.
The midfielder suffered a strong blow that took him out of the match against Argentinos Juniors for the Diego Armando Maradona Cup and, as a result of that injury, he missed the quarterfinal rematch of the CONMEBOL Libertadores Cup against Nacional.
But on Tuesday he was able to perform physical tasks and this Wednesday he played soccer, which gives him good chances thinking about the first leg of the semifinals against Palmeiras or even the Superclásico, with a date yet to be defined.
Who is ready to reappear is Enzo Pérez, who rejoined the group last Saturday, after overcoming COVID-19.
On the other hand, next week there will be new tests that will be key thinking about the cup semifinals, for that reason, in River they readjusted the care in the squad to avoid contagion and the players, again, retire to eat at home, not to share so many spaces.
