River Plate suffered a significant loss ahead of their match for the 16th. of the final of the Argentine Cup against Atlético Tucumán, by losing Matías Suárez and his absence makes Marcelo Gallardo keep a mystery that could mean the change of scheme.
The forward has a synovitis in his right knee and was out of the call. The coach did not rehearse any team these days, so this Thursday may surprise as he usually does.
However, in SportsCenter AM, Javier Gil Navarro advanced the options that the Millionaire has to replace Suárez: one would be name by name, although with players with different characteristics, with Jorge Carrascal and with fewer chances for Federico Girotti.
But for the specialized ESPN chronicler, the most likely thing would be that Gallardo opts to return to the scheme with a five and two-point line, with which Héctor David Martínez would enter the defense and it would be Julián Álvarez who would accompany Rafael Borré in the attack .
In this way, the probable team for this Thursday night would be: Armani; Montiel, Maidana, Díaz, Martínez, Angileri; De la Cruz, Pérez, Palavecino; Álvarez and Borré.
River Plate will face Atlético Tucumán this Thursday, from 8:30 p.m., for the 16th. final. To advance, in the next key, the Millionaire will play the Superclásico with Boca Juniors.
