River Plate advanced to the second round of the Argentine Cup and is already targeting Colón, for the League Cup, where the main doubt appears in the attack.
Marcelo Gallardo’s team returned to training this Thursday afternoon, but Matías Suárez is the great unknown for Sunday. The striker is getting fluid from the synovitis in the knee, but his evolution is day by day, as detailed by Javier Gil Navarro in SportsCenter AM, so until the last moment it will not be known whether to be there to play.
If the ex-Belgrano forward is not in conditions, Julián Álvarez or Federico Girotti, who excelled with his double against Atlético Tucumán, are the options to replace him.
But also Rafael Borré could rest on Sunday. The Colombian also has a knee ailment, which is why he started in the bank on Wednesday and in that case, Lucas Beltrán adds to the possibilities for the millionaire attack.
For the rest, Gallardo would maintain the scheme with four in the background and would not make major changes.
Against this background, River would begin with: Armani; Montiel, Maidana, Díaz, Angileri; De La Cruz, Pérez, Palavecino, Suárez and Borré or Girotti, Álvarez or Beltrán.
The Millionaire will receive Colón de Santa Fe, on Sunday from 8:00 p.m. for the ninth date of the League Cup.
