(EFE) – Rosario Central and San Lorenzo will play this Wednesday a duel between Argentines that will leave the possibilities of advancing in the South American CONMEBOL very touched for one of the two.
Because in this new format only the leader of each group advances and that both teams lost on the first day, one more defeat would be decisive, and a draw, depending on what happens between October 12 and Huachipato, could not serve either. no one.
CENTRAL THINKS ABOUT ITS CLASSIC MORE THAN THE CUP
Rosario Central also has another duel this coming weekend that counts much more than any point, its classic against Newell’s Old Boys.
For this reason, their coach, Cristian “Kily” González, aims to form a team full of substitutes to give priority to the League Cup match, where they have little chance of advancing to the next round.
It is speculated that some starters who will play against San Lorenzo for the South American will be midfielder Rodrigo Villagra and goalkeeper Jorge Broun.
In the case of Villagra, his ownership will be due to the fact that he must serve a sanction on the next date, so Kily can squeeze it in the cupbearer match.
El Canalla is on a losing streak after losing against October 12 on the first match day and falling again last weekend against Estudiantes de La Plata.
Still in need of victories, key players like Marco Ruben and Emiliano Vecchio aim to rest against San Lorenzo.
MORAL UP FOR SAN LORENZO
San Lorenzo lost last week on the opening day of the Sudamericana against Huachipato, eighth classified in the last Chilean league, and only four days later he won as a visitor what many consider the best team in America, Marcelo Gallardo’s River Plate.
Thus, the Cyclone, capable of the best and the worst in a season that is being a roller coaster for the crow fan, will seek to confirm the good course taken this weekend at the Monumental.
Diego Dabove’s team could have the expected return of Colombian pivot Yeison Gordillo, injured almost since his arrival.
The Paraguayan brothers Ángel and Óscar Romero can benefit from the presence that he can win in the center of the field with Gordillo, although their ownership is not assured.
Dabove, like Kily, could opt for some of their starters to rest with a view to the next game, where a large part of their options to go to the next phase against Godoy Cruz are at stake.
That is why unusual players such as Franco Troyansky and Alexander Díaz could enter the squad, the latter at the forefront of the attack in the place of the injured Franco Di Santo.
The goal seems to be the property of captain Sebastián Torrico, exceptional in the victory against River, which he will repeat at Gigante de Arroyito.
The defenders Andrés Herrera and Manuel Insaurralde can return to the team after being isolated by covid-19, while Diego “Torito” Rodríguez, Alexis Sabella and one of the protagonists of the victory at the Monumental, Nicolás “Uvita” Fernández, are doubtful.
