River Plate makes its debut in the League Cup with several casualties, which condition Marcelo Gallardo to build the starting team against Estudiantes LP.
Javier Gil Navarro detailed in SportsCenter AM that on Friday Jorge Carrascal will be discharged for COVID-19, but will no longer be taken into account for the weekend. The same would happen with Nicolás De La Cruz, who will be evaluated, but had already been excluded from the debut in the Argentine Cup due to a muscular discomfort.
Nacho Fernández, still recovering from surgery and with his future most likely outside the club, is also low, like Gonzalo Montiel and Cristian Ferreira.
So if the studies of Matías Suárez, who was replaced by Depro due to a muscular discomfort, are good, Gallardo would repeat the team on Sunday. If the ex-Belgrano were not available, Santiago Girotti would be his replacement.
Then, the eleven that would jump to the field in Uno would be: Armani; Casco, Rojas, Pinola, Díaz, Angileri; Rollheiser, Enzo Pérez; Suárez, Borré and Álvarez.
River will debut in the League Cup on Sunday 9:30 pm against Estudiantes LP in La Plata.
