24 hours after the classic with Avellaneda, Racing suffered a significant loss because Darío Cvitanich was positive for COVID-19.
The forward was going to be the headline on Saturday and he trained normally this Friday, but then he presented symptoms, was swabbed and the contagion was confirmed, this was reported by the club on its social networks.
“Dario Cvitanich presented symptoms compatible with the coronavirus this morning after the end of the practice. He was swabbed later and the study gave a positive result.
The striker is isolated at home and in good health. ” published Racing.
The striking thing is that in the swabs on Thursday, all had been negative, that is to say that Nacho Piatti was an isolated case on the campus.
Regarding the team to face Independiente, Juan Antonio Pizzi already had everything defined, but now he is forced to change. According to Gonzalo Cardozo on ESPN F360, Lorenzo Melgarejo is the one who has the most chances to replace Cvitanich, but Maxi Lovera and Fabricio Domínguez are also options.
In this way, the 5-3-2 of La Academia would be with: Arias; Juan José Caseres, Novillo, Orban, Eugenio Mena; Miranda, Neri Domínguez, Gutiérrez, Chancalai; Copetti and Melgarejo or Lovera or F. Domínguez.
Racing will receive Independiente this Saturday from 9pm, for the ninth date of the League Cup.
